Enrollment

Enrollment is a period of time, typically immediately following the creation of a new user account, during which Plurilock's machine learning algorithims assemble a unique profile of the patterns in a particular user's typing or mouse movement, location, and other identity signals.

Once enrollment is complete, this profile is used as a basis for comparison during login authentication or during everyday work to confirm or refute identity.

Machine learning enables profiles to evolve over time as the user's movement tendencies slowly change, and because users tend to interact with each device differently, any given user is profiled separately for each device they routinely use.
