DHS/ALL/PIA-054 Identity Intelligence Biometrics (I2B) Pilot

The Identity Intelligence Biometrics (I2B) pilot is intended to develop a cloud-based multi-modal (face and fingerprint) automated biometric identification system using non-U.S. person biometric records held by U.S. government agencies. This pilot will assist the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) with determining whether this modality can augment existing biometric screenings for Syrian refugee applicants and also identify a threat-nexus for a subset of non-U.S. persons who attempt illegal entry. DHS is publishing this PIA because the I2B Pilot will use personally identifiable information (PII) collected from refugee applicant interviews and a subset of data from subjects apprehended at or near the U.S. border. This PIA covers the overall approach and vision for the program. This PIA will be updated if the pilot progresses to an operational state.
