Hello!

Thanks for installing TypToP (version: 0.2.11). This software
attaches a new pluggable authentication module (PAM) to some of your
common authentication processes, such as su, login, screensaver etc.,
and observes for password typing mistakes. It records your frequent
typing mistakes, and enable logging in with slight vairations of your
actual login password that are frequent and safe to do so.

This is a research prototype, and we are collecting some anonymous
non-sensitive data about your password typing patterns to verify our
design. The details of what we collect, how we collect and store, and
the security blueprint of this software can be found in the GitHub
page: https://github.com/rchatterjee/pam-typopw. The participation in the study is completely voluntary,
and you can opt out at any time while still keep using the software.

Checkout other options (such as opting out of the study) of the
utility script typtop by running:

$ typtops.py --help

Note, You have to initiate this for each user who intend to use the
benefit of adaptive typo-tolerant password login.
