The contract calls for the development of “Persona Management Software” which would help the user create and manage a variety of distinct fake profiles online.

According to the contract, the software would “protect the identity of government agencies” by employing a number of false signals to convince users that the poster is in fact a real person. A single user could manage unique background information and status updates for up to 10 fake people from a single computer.
