Cloud computing needs a strong and efficient authentication system because the user will access his rented part through a faraway connection and it will make the authentication sensor device besides the user place for identification and verification so how to know the user who claimed himself to be the legal user. Keystroke identification system as a biometric authentication technique is strongly Candidate for the security issues in cloud computing technology. Keystroke dynamics as a security system did not need extra hardware because the authentication device will be the existing keyboard based on everyone has a unique style for writing. The other biometric methods are addressed with each advantage and disadvantage along with keystroke method. In this paper, all known studies about keystroke technique are explained and compared between them according to the classification technique, number of the participated users and each study results then introduces a survey on software and hardware of other biometric authentication techniques and after the literature review is addressed then keystroke as a biometric authentication system is suggested to access cloud computing environment because it has many advantages to being a part of the known security systems which spread in our world.
