A New Method For Online Signatures – Your Mouse Movements Reveal You
from the watch-how-you-sign...-digitally dept
Some new technology has been created that apparently is quite accurate in identifying if you are who you say you are – by watching the way you sign your name with a mouse. Apparently, just like people sign their names using a pen with some unique characteristics, the same is true of how you handle the mouse when you sign. The software is supposedly quite accurate. If this really works, how long will it be until we have digital forgers who are adept at learning how someone signs their name with a mouse and copying it? Still, it could certainly be a useful technology in cutting down online identity theft.
