Abstract: Behavioural biometrics such as keystroke dynamics is a reliable human trait that can be used to successfully validate a user claimed identity on a given information system. Apart from its several advantages over traditional authentication mechanisms, the intrinsic time dimension of these distinctive typing patterns also allows for a real time and continuous user authentication. Being the internet security a recurrent and growing concern, this thesis asserts the actual applicability of such behavioural biometrics technique in a web environment, suggesting an elegant and transparent intrusion detection solution that requires no additional hardware or software. The security of users online is ensured just by the mere consequence of typing.
