Abstract

Methods and systems are provided for identifying users by testing for predetermined inherent characteristics (202), and for identifying inherent characteristics suitable for use in identifying users (200). Examples include tests for visual pattern recognition tendencies, pattern completion preferences, typing rhythms, and other behavorial characteristics. The identification tests described may be used in place of conventional identification tools such as passwords and magnetic ID cards, or the conventional and novel tests may be used in combination.
