Abstract: With hundreds of millions using computers and mobile devices all over the globe, these devices have an established position in modern society. Nevertheless, most of these devices use weak authentication techniques with passwords and PINs which can be easily hacked. Thus, stronger identification is needed to ensure data security and privacy. In this paper, we will explain the employment of biometrics to computer and mobile platforms. In addition, the possibility of using keystroke and mouse dynamics for computer authentication is being checked. Finally, we propose an authentication scheme for smart phones that shows positive results.
