DHS/OBIM/PIA-004 Homeland Advanced Recognition Technology System (HART) Increment 1

The Homeland Advanced Recognition Technology System (HART) replaces the legacy Automated Biometric Identification System (IDENT) as the primary Department of Homeland Security (DHS) system for storage and processing of biometric and associated biographic information for national security; law enforcement; immigration and border management; intelligence; background investigations for national security positions and certain positions of public trust; and associated testing, training, management reporting, planning and analysis, development of new technologies, and other administrative uses. The Office of Biometric Identity Management (OBIM) will implement HART in 4 incremental phases. This Privacy Impact Assessment (PIA) only focuses on Increment 1. OBIM will publish an update to this PIA prior to the release of each Increment.
