BioPassword LogOn is a new software application from Net Nanny, those wonderful net censorship folks. BioPassword LogOn measures not only the password, but exactly how it is typed into the machine when a user logs on. The software analyzes keystroke dynamics to measure things like key speed and rhythm. Thresholds can be adjusted to low or high sensitivity. If the user template does not match the way a person types in the password, the user is locked out.

Apparently, if someone has a hand injury or just has stiff joints one day they may have to get someone from the computer department to get them into their own computer. Things would definately be tough if you had a hand or arm in a cast.

This application was demonstrated at COMDEX in Las Vegas. Yes, it is spelled that way with caps.
