Patent Abstract
Parameters of user interaction with a hand-held mobile device are continually and unobtrusively sampled, discretized and monitored during normal operation of the device. Software on the device learns the usage repertoire of an authorized user from the samples, and is able to distinguish between the authorized user of the device and an unauthorized user. Recognition of an authorized user by a mobile device can be exploited to trigger defensive actions or to facilitate provision of secure automatic authentication of users.
