The Pentagon has finally inked a deal to pilot behavioral biometric technology to identify those using its computer networks, more than a year after then-CIO Terry Halvorsen first pledged to get rid of the ubiquitous Common Access Card.
Shaun Waterman of CyberScoop reports that Vancouver, Canada-based Plurilock will provide the technology. The company’s BioTrack product develops a unique profile of users based on the way they interact with computer keyboards, mice and touchscreens.
“Plurilock’s advanced system for determining ongoing proof of presence provides a cybersecurity solution that instantaneously recognizes breaches, helps with corporate forensic investigations, and ensures regulatory compliance.” said Plurilock CEO Ian Paterson.
