Mr Basu shared some interesting thoughts of using behavioural biometrics such as the Key Board strokes, Gait recognition, Signature Analysis etc. Mr Basu showed how an analysis of how a person would enter a PIN or signature or password could be analyzed to develop a distinct pattern that can be used as an additional form of authentication that would be able to significantly reduce the forging of key strokes.

The solution briefly demonstrated by Mr Basu appears to have a good potential to be used by Banks and Financial institutions and deserves a serious trial.
