What is BioType?
BioType is a software that collects keystroke data and uses mathematic and statistics to vectorize the data to build a "profile" that allows to identify, authenticate and compare user's patterns.
How does it work?
BioType software collects keystroke dynamics, analyzes them using in-house mathematical and statistical algorithms and authenticates users just by the way they use a keyboard. It is a bit like "graphology in the computer age". It has been extensively tested and has proved to be reliable and robust.
Non intrusive, no hardware
Compared to other biometrics, keystroke biometrics has desirable properties due to its user-friendliness and non-intrusiveness. Keystroke dynamics data can be collected without a user’s cooperation or even awareness. Unlike other biometrics, the temporal information of keystrokes can be collected to ascertain a user using only software and no additional hardware.
Continuous user validation
This argument stems from observations that similar neuro-physiological factors that make written signatures unique, are also exhibited in a user’s typing pattern . When a person types, the latencies between successive keystrokes, keystroke durations, finger placement and applied pressure on the keys can be used to construct a unique signature (i.e., profile) for that individual. For well-known, regularly typed strings, such signatures can be quite consistent. Thus, Biotype offers a way to continuously validate the legitimate identity of a user. As long as user interaction with the system through input devices persists, keystroke pattern can be constantly monitored and reevaluated.
ADGS innovative, tokenless authentication system delivers strong security through a combination of keystroke dynamics, behavioral and environmental characteristics to minimize identity theft, web fraud and other system vulnerabilities. Password are vulnerable: they can be stolen, lent, shared, hacked.... but the way a user types on a keyboard is unique. It is not anymore what you type, but how you type. BioType software solution creates a unique personal security pattern that recognizes authorized users while keeping hackers out.
ADGS BioType is truly innovative for securing accesses, ensuring imposters masquerading as the valid user are unable to access private or corporate information.
BioType adds an invisible biometric layer that can be implemented into any existing system access, from the Microsoft Windows system to a simple webpage on the internet. Users do not change anything to their login habits, while allowing a control center to transparently certify a user identity in real time. BioType is based on the concept of behavioral biometrics, or neuromuscular behavior.
Keystroke patterns are harder to reproduce than written signatures. With security systems allowing only a limited number of erroneous input attempts before locking down the account, integration of BioType leaves random password guessing attack obsolete, and stolen credentials entirely insignificant, since successful possession of the secret key is only a mere condition of the entire authentication chain.
BioType is ideal for National Security, Administration, Military, Banks, Oil Companies and more generally, companies with needs to identify and certify users to protect their sensitive information.
Psychological state detection and future developments
Free text keystroke dynamics refers to the habitual patterns or rhythms an individual exhibits while typing on a keyboard input device. These rhythms and patterns of tapping are idiosyncratic, in the same way as handwritings or signatures, due to their similar governing neurophysiological mechanisms.
Although keystroke dynamics is governed by a person’s neurophysiological pathway to be highly individualistic, it is also influenced by his or her psychological state. As a "behavioral" biometrics, typing exhibits instabilities due to transient factors such as emotions, stress, drowsiness or early stage of neurodegenerative diseases. ADGS is currently developing methods to detect, classify and report these states of mind.
"organizing the chaos"…
(Text Analysis and Semantic MOdeling)
In today’s modern world, huge amounts of information are generated by the most diverse sources, such as social media messages, web pages, PDF and Word text files, Excel spreadsheets, companies and governments’ databases, etc… This diversity of data sources makes current search and analysis tools useless.
TASMO finds and extracts relevant information from the chaos…
Better information means better decisions…

TASMO brings a lot of power into the hands of a decision maker for a very low deployment cost.
TASMO is an Innovation Technology development supported by the Qatar Foundation
