Paper Abstract

The paper presented here explores the possibility of applying neural networks to identify authorized users of a computer system. Computer security can be ensured only by restricting access to a computer system. This in turn requires a sure means of identifying authorized users. The related research is based on the fact that every human being is distinguished by many unique physical characteristics. It has been known even before the age of computers that no two individuals sign their names identically. Signature samples collected from a group of individuals are analyzed and a neural network-based system that can recognize these signatures is designed.
