US TSA Continues rollout of credential authentication technology to improve checkpoint screening capabilities

The US Transportation Security Administration checkpoint at Greater Rochester International Airport is now utilizing new state-of-the-art technology that confirms the validity of a traveler’s identification (ID) and confirms their flight information in near real time.

“The technology we’ve now installed at the Rochester checkpoint enhances detection capabilities for identifying fraudulent ID such as driver’s licenses and passports at checkpoints and increases efficiency by automatically verifying passenger identification,” said Bart Johnson TSA’s Federal Security Director for Upstate New York. “The system will also confirm the passenger’s flight status in near real time through a secured connection.”
