This computer software called Mandrake will have gesture recognition technology that will aid in authentication of encryption and decryption of digital files like video, text, audio, and other multimedia files. In addition the software will analyze pressure, rhythm, and the time elapsed to carry out the writing gestures. While it is unknown if the NSA has executed this protocol yet, it is possible that gesture recognition would be safer than current passwords for protecting the authenticity of the end-user.
Currently, Lockheed and mobile risk management provider Fixmo have collaborated on the same authentication technology for mobile devices. It is predicted that 30% of organizations will use this biometric authentication on mobile devices compared to the current 5% in 2014.
