Abstract—In this paper, an intensive study is performed on
the dataset that contains people’s activity records of computer
usage, and a multi-feature based user identification algorithm is
developed. It is shown that features generated from user’s
program/process start up history and website access records are
extremely effective to differentiate people from each other. The
proposed algorithm exploits this fact for identifying user by
matching user’s current behavior features with the history
feature library. The experimental results show that the
proposed multi-feature based algorithm can achieve 91.2% user
