ABSTRACT
The article reports on the plan of the U.S. Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) to announce its Active Authentication program that will initiate a basic research effort in software biometrics. The software is designed to help people identify things such as physical biometrics, passwords and user identifications (ID). DARPA plans to award six to eight contracts, with no more than 500,000 U.S. dollars for each contract.
