DHS/USCIS/PIA-078 Data Streaming Services (DSS)


U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) uses Data Streaming Services as intermediary messengers to effectively and efficiently move data among USCIS systems in near real-time. The use of these services allows USCIS to transport data without the technical and administrative burden usually placed on the operating systems. USCIS is publishing this Privacy Impact Assessment (PIA) to evaluate the privacy risks and mitigations associated with the transport of personally identifiable information (PII) using these services.
