Abstract
Military Oriented Protective Posture (MOPP) gear consists of rubber boots, gloves, gas mask, hood and carbon-filter suit used to protect the warfighter from nuclear, biological, and chemical attacks. While necessary, MOPP gear is cumbersome and uncomfortable. Tasks requiring significant situational awareness or manual dexterity such as typing on a computer keyboard become extremely difficult due to the thick gloves and reduced vision from the gas mask. This combined with the stress of the battlefield can make the simple task of typing a password, extremely difficult. Oceanit proposes to rectify this problem by designing an innovative 3 factor authentication system that will provide an easy-to-use, highly secure, highly accurate system for warfighters encumbered in level IV gear.
