In this preliminary paper, we investigate the use of keystroke and mouse dynamics as a means of identifying soft biometric features. We present evidence that combining features from both provides a more accurate means of identifying all of the soft biometric traits investigated, regardless of the machine learning method used. The data presented in this paper gives a thorough breakdown of accuracy scores from multiple machine learning methods and numbers of features used.
