There has been significant interest in the area of keystroke analysis to support the authentication of users, and previous research has identified three discrete methods of application; static, periodic dynamic and continuous dynamic analysis. This paper summarises the approaches and metrics arising from previous work, and then proceeds to introduce a new variation, based upon application-specific keystroke analysis. The discussion also considers the use of keystroke analysis as a progressive, escalating response measure in the context of a comprehensive user authentication and supervision system, presenting an example of how this could be realised in practice.
