In this paper, a new behavioral biometric password based on haptic interaction is described. This "haptic password" system is built on a device that has a force-sensitive screen. The user authentication process leverages maximal overlap discrete wavelet transform (MODWT) based feature extraction along with a customized classifier as well as an adaptive template scheme to accommodate users' variations over time. An experimental study was conducted with 29 subjects and we investigated the

The results suggest that this proposed haptic password system achieves robust high authentication accuracy and scalability, as well as forgery-proof performance.
