DHS/TSA/PIA-051 Travel Document Checker Automation - Digital Identity Technology Pilots

The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) requires that aviation passengers verify their identity at TSA checkpoints. Typically, this is accomplished by the presentation of a physical identity document (ID) to the Travel Document Checker Officer. TSA is exploring the acceptance of digital IDs (a digital representation of a passenger’s physical ID on a digital device) to provide passengers with a secure, efficient, and touchless experience. This Privacy Impact Assessment (PIA) is conducted pursuant to Section 222 of the Homeland Security Act to address privacy risks in the use of digital IDs in the identity verification process at the checkpoint.
