Towards Energy-Efficient Privacy-Preserving Active Authentication of Stamrtphone Users

This dataset contains data recorded using a smartphone and two smartwatches during typing activities. Users were asked to walk down a hallway while answering a number of questions using a custom data collection app. During each session, a supervisor grabbed the smartphone from the hands of the subject without prior notice. The subjects were also asked to give the smartphone to the supervisor, and to place the smartphone on a desk in each session.
