Abstract: Traditionally, the validation is based on the mixture of user name and PIN, password. Though this technique is frequently used, there are convinced flaws that makes it risky. Biometric access method connected with security in computer is gaining popularity in today's cosmos. Biometrics is measuring physical uniqueness of an human being for identification purpose. Keystroke biometrics is a fresh variety of biometric identification which is inexpensive and unobtrusive method that provides enhanced security as compared to traditional login and password. It does not necessitate any hardware as it uses the simple keyboard. The phrase keystroke dynamics refers to the latency, key push durations and the typing pattern which is fairly unique to an individual. This project aims at analyzing the typing pattern of an individual for strengthening the security in a computer system. In this project we are desighning tool that accepts the password and based on specific calculations a user is legitimate. For the standard of taking the security to the next phase, we are tolerating the user to include special characters (shift,ctrl,shift etc) in their password.
