The US Transport Security Administration (TSA) is the federal agency responsible for security in all modes of transportation. Joint customer for the project is The United States Coast Guard (USCG), a branch of the United States armed forces and one of seven uniformed services.
The customer wished to issue a tamper-resistant biometric credential to maritime workers requiring access to secure port facilities and vessels. To obtain a Transport Worker Identification Credential (TWIC), an applicant must provide biographic and biometric (fingerprint) information, sit for a digital photograph and successfully pass a security threat assessment conducted by the TSA.
A key customer desire was to follow US Government Homeland Security Presidential Directive 12 (HSPD-12) standards, to achieve interoperability and implement best practice security processes.
MyID is passed registration data from an IDMS and formats it into a card personalization request; this is forwarded to the personalization bureau. Printed cards are locked and sent to activation locations. The receipt of a card batch is used to trigger a notification to the applicant that their card is ready for activation. The applicant visits an activation location, places their card into a MyID activation station and follows a simple self-service workflow that requires biometric verification before the card is unlocked, personalized with certificates and activated for use.
The Federal Aviation Administration is an agency of the United States Department of Transportation with the authority to regulate and oversee all aspects of civil aviation in the US. Providing extensive self-service features for operational efficiency and cost reduction, the FAA have used MyID to issue over 80,000 PIV cards across 410 locations.Read More
