The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency is seeking to develop ways to use behavioral biometrics in adding additional layers of protection onto mobile devices.

DARPA met with industry representatives Friday to discuss the program’s goals and has released a solicitation for the Active Authentication Program, the agency said Tuesday.

Markers such as usage patterns or habits of individuals are intended to serve as an online fingerprint and identity check, according to DARPA.

“We have received a large number of really creative approaches to the desktop security problem,” said Richard Guidorizzi, DARPA program manager. “We are looking to tap into some more of this creativity to create truly robust solutions for DoD mobile platforms.”

Initially, the agency intended for the program to apply to desktop workstations but the agency wants to extend applications, sensors and other resources through the program to mobile devices.

DARPA says it wants to help warfighters have devices they need to download software, reports, maps, mission-specific software and receive orders in the field.
