In order to improve the recognition rate of users with single behavioral feature and prevent impostors from restricting an input device to avoid detection, a dual-index user authentication method based on Multiple Kernel Learning (MKL) for keystroke and mouse behavioral feature fusion was proposed in this paper. Due to the heterogeneity between the keystroke features and the mouse features, we argue that each type of features is mapped to a suitable kernel and the weights of each kernel are

The dataset used in this paper was collected under complete uncontrolled condition from some volunteers by using our data collection program. The experimental results show that the proposed method can obtain the best recognition accuracy of 89.6%. Compared to the traditional methods of single feature, the dual-index method can get more stable and effective authentication. Therefore, the proposed method in this paper fully demonstrates the reliability of dual-index user authentication.
