Mouse Prints?

Filed under: Uncategorized — Jim @ 6:27 pm

Lornagrl points to an article stating that software has been developed that can identify a person by the characteristic way he or she uses a mouse. This would have obvious utility in connection with online shopping and other situations where it is important to verify the identity of the user. In addition, it doesn’t take too much imagination to see how law enforcement agencies could also put such software to use.

Note to self: Next time I want to pretend I am someone else, I will be sure to wear rubber gloves when I handle the mouse.

Yeah. That’s the ticket.
