Abstract

Multi-touch tablets can offer a large, collaborative space where several users can work on a task at the same time. However, the lack of privacy in these situations makes standard password-based authentication easily compromised. This work presents a new gesture-based authentication system based on users' unique signature of touch motion when drawing a combination of one-stroke gestures following two different policies, one fixed for all users and the other selected by a model of control to maximize the expected long-term information gain. The system is able to achieve high user recognition accuracy with relatively few gestures, demonstrating that human touch patterns have a distinctive "signature" that can be used as a powerful biometric measure for user recognition and personalization.
