ABSTRACT

Dynamic Signature   [open pdf - 314KB]

"Dynamic Signature' is a biometric modality that uses, for recognition purposes, the anatomic and behavioral characteristics that an individual exhibits when signing his or her name (or other phrase). Dynamic Signature devices should not be confused with electronic signature capture systems that are used to capture a graphic image of the signature and are common in locations where merchants are capturing signatures for transaction authorizations. Data such as the dynamically captured direction, stroke, pressure, and shape of an individual's signature can enable handwriting to be a reliable indicator of an individual's identity (i.e., measurements of the captured data, when compared to those of matching samples, are a reliable biometric for writer identification.)"
