Abstract
To address the Navy need for a flexible approach that provides DoD users with a secure and efficient mobile interface for DoD business systems, to maximize mobile technology use while maintaining information security, data protection, and integrity, Physical Optics Corporation (POC) proposes to develop a new Mobile Person Authentication Security System (MPASS) that imparts a biometric signature as one factor of a two-factor authentication and uses it for data protection in transit and at rest. Innovative methods of biometric key-based data protection provide enhanced security, data protection, and reliable user authentication. MPASS service-oriented architecture provides mobile device integration with existing Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) and Active Directory (AD). In Phase I, POC will investigate and analyze current and evolving DoD and commercial products and initiatives for mobile user technologies; and develop a strategy and cost-effective MPASS system architecture and improved mobile device policy that will allow secure integration of mobile technologies with business systems. POC will select the best technologies for use, and demonstrate the feasibility of the MPASS technology by designing and assembling a proof-of-concept TRL 4 MPASS system prototype. In Phase II, an advanced MPASS system TRL 6 prototype will be assembled and demonstrated under representative operational environments.
