To protect keyboard data that includes sensitive information such as authentication data, secure keyboard programs preempt the extraction of the keyboard data before they are stolen by an attacker. Although these programs are operated at a variety of defense levels, some secure keyboard programs are still vulnerable to hardware-level attacks; therefore, in this paper, the security of keyboard data is evaluated according to the functionality of the Kaspersky “Internet Security” product, whereby secure information is inputted into a variety of websites that comprises SNSs, an email account, and a banking service.
