Behavioral Biometrics Specialist Reveals Role in DoD’s DISA Project

A Brooklyn-based behavioral biometrics specialist has revealed that it was recruited to aid in the Department of Defense’s development of a ‘proof of life’ authentication system. Called Twosense.ai, the company says it won a contract through Army Contracting Command’s Rapid Innovation Fund. The deal is valued at $2.42 million, and was actually awarded in late…

DoD Now Actively Testing ‘Patterns of Life’ Mobile Authentication

DoD Now Actively Testing ‘Patterns of Life’ Mobile Authentication

“The aim is to develop a highly sophisticated authentication system that can passively identify a user without relying on any single modality.” The US military is making progress in its effort to develop a ‘patterns of life’ authentication system to replace the Common Access Cards traditionally used by personnel. According to a new FCW report,…

Imperial College London Researchers Detail Gait Recognition System

Imperial College London Researchers Detail Gait Recognition System

Imperial College London researchers have refined an authentication system based on gait biometrics that they say meets National Institute of Standards and Technology and Dieharder standards. As Tech Xplore reports, the system is based on multiple sensors positioned throughout the user’s body. Each of these sensors can capture movement patterns from its own particular position,…
