In this paper we investigate the capacity of sound & timing information during typing of a password for the user identification and authentication task. The novelty of this paper lies in the comparison of performance between improved timing-based and audio-based keystroke dynamics analysis and the fusion for the keystroke authentication. We collected data of 50 people typing the same given password 100 times, divided into 4 sessions of 25 typings and tested how well the system could recognize the correct typist. Using fusion of timing (9.73%) and audio calibration scores (8.99%) described in the paper we achieved 4.65% EER (Equal Error Rate) for the authentication task. The results show the potential of using Audio Keystroke Dynamics information as a way to authenticate or identify users during log-on.
