The way we move our mouse, use our keyboard, and touch our phones is unique to us. Behavioral biometrics allows security systems to identify computer users across a wide variety of devices uniquely. While AI can help secure computer infrastructure, they are vulnerable to data-based type attacks. By capturing user interaction data, an attacker may build an AI model and replicate a unique user’s behavior – bypassing behavioral biometric systems. This kind of attack can target all peripheral devices, including mouse, keyboard, and touchscreen interfaces.
