User Verification System via Mouse Movements

Motivation: Design a tool in which through the capture of mouse input activities pattern, is able to
passively identify the user. Description: Existing user verification and re-authentication methods require human involvement,
such as providing secret answers to agreed-upon questions. Unfortunately, they only provide
one-time verification, and the verified users are still vulnerable to both session hijacking and
the divulging of the secret information. To achieve a timely response to an account breach, more
frequent user verification is needed. However, frequent verification must be passive and
transparent to users, as continually requiring a user’s involvement for re-authentication is too
obtrusive and inconvenient to be acceptable. In order to solve this problem, a non-intrusive and
non-invasive passive authentication tool is required, which monitors and analyses the mouse
movement patterns, and identifies its user.
