  • Content Description: The {open_quotes}Protection, Containment, Surveillance, and Authentication (PCSA){close_quotes} software was evaluated. The purpose of the evaluation was to determine the effectiveness of PCSA software in meeting the goals of a cost-effective, non-intrusive method for software authentication. Conclusions from the evaluation include (1) Commercially available software should be evaluated for the ability to provide the necessary control of access to and use of a PC. (2) The proposed software authentication methodology is not a cost-effective solution for the Agency and should be abandoned.
