All people type in a unique rhythm, rate, and pattern. So, a program can
be written to validate a persons identity. Now, it is only another layer
of security, because we also type different based on our mood and such.
So it would have to have a variance allowed. Which allows some other
person to fall with in the allowed variance.

>I had an idea where you time each keystroke of the password and make a fingerprint of the password entry. I found that the time between each keystroke is pretty consistent. I thought it might be an extra level of protect if openssh could use such a technique. I could give you my password but you still wouldn't be able to get into my account. It could be a option for the extra secure accounts.
