January 18, 2013. This system validates the authenticity of passenger identity documents and/or boarding passes at TSA security checkpoints. TSA is updating its PIA to reflect that it will network CAT/BPSS in order to transmit data from the Secure Flight database to CAT/BPSS devices at security checkpoints. This PIA update applies to all locations where TSA will pilot and deploy Secure Flight connectivity. Where TSA continues to operate CAT/BPSS devices without Secure Flight connectivity, the previously published PIAs dated November 29, 2007 and August 11, 2009, remain in effect. This activity does not alter the privacy posture of the data obtained previously by TSA for the Secure Flight program.
