Importance of a Versatile Logging Tool for Behavioural Biometrics and Continuous Authentication Research
MetadataShow full item record
We present the design and implementation of a Windows operating system based logging tool, which can capture the keystroke, mouse, software interaction and hardware usage simultaneously and continuously. Log data can be stored locally or transmitted in a secure manner to a server. Filter drivers are used to log with high precision. Privacy of the users and confidentiality of sensitive data have been taken into account throughout the development of the tool. Our behaviour logging software is mainly designed for behavioural biometrics research, but its scope could also be beneficial to proactive forensics and intrusion detection. We show the validity of the tool in a study of keyboard and mouse data uses for continuous authentication.
