Mouse dynamics is a form of behavioral biometrics that
can be used for several security applications. Similar
keystroke dynamics, mouse dynamics does not required
special hardware device for data collection. We target
biometric identification problem by focusing on extracting
the behavioral features related to the user and using this
features for computer security. Standardized mouse
dynamics biometrics involves a signature that is based on
selected mouse movement characteristics under different
screen resolution and mouse pointer speed settings.
Several experiments are conducted under different settings
to form the mouse dynamics signature of the user. Earlier
approaches failed to give better results when performed
under different screen resolution and mouse pointer speed.
Our approach standardizes the user signature irrespective
of the setting making it more useful for security

Recent years Biometrics plays a vital role in security
application. There are different types of Biometric
Technologies used for different security purposes. First,
Biometrics is a collection of factors it describes the
behavioral or physiological characteristics of human to
verify identity Physiological biometrics are finger scan,
iris scan, retina scan, hand scan, and facial scan use
measurements from the human body.
Behavioral biometrics such as signature or keystroke
dynamics use measurements based on human actions.
Behavioral biometric systems have experienced less
success when compared to physiological systems m
