DHS/S&T/PIA-005 Project Hostile Intent Technology


Project Hostile Intent (PHI) is a research effort by the Science and Technology Directorate to ascertain whether screening technology can aid DHS screeners in making better decisions by supplementing the current screening process (wherein a human screener evaluates an individual's behavior) with training and computers. This Privacy Impact Assessment (PIA) addresses privacy impacts of this program, and specifically, the temporary storage of video images during field tests of PHI's performance with real behavioral data to ensure that it is effective in a "real world" environment.
