Existing access control methods depend on mechanicsms that can either be copied or stolen. From passwrods to identification cards, these forms of authentication are unique only while they remain in possession of the owner. Signature-based authentication and verification however, while not implying the two-dimensional ink on paper, but rather the method with which a signature is made, is extremely unique and proves a method that cannot feasibly be duplicated or stolen. Thereby, this form of access control can can be more beneficial to security issues and to the increasing awareness of identity management. The objective of this thesis is to test and evaluate the Bio-PenÂ® and its associated WebClient software leveraging the Cooperative Operations and Applied Science and Technology Studies (COASTS) field experimentation program as a vessel for equipment and idea testing, requirements and standards definition. This thesis will examine a new biometric technology in terms of access control as well as its associated software. The primary objective of this research is to develop a fundamental understanding of the doctrinal, technological, and operational considerations of how the Bio-PenÂ® can be utilized within the Department of Defense and Homeland Defense. To accomplish this objective, the Bio-PenÂ® and WebClient software will be tested and evaluated for use in the field to determine feasibility for future applications.
