Psylock: Biometric Security Without Sensors

Need an easy way to add biometrics to an online project? Psylock has an answer. It’s a Flash-based interface that compares your typing style against a list of known styles and logs you in based on your individual typing fingerprint. To enroll you simply type a sentence nine times and then the system senses the pauses, mistakes, and speed of your hunting and pecking. Obviously, this doesn’t work if you have a broken hand or, presumably, you’re under duress so it’s fairly hard to crack a system using physical coercion. A cool way to add biometrics to web-based forms.
