DHS outlines vision for improving operational efficiency through biometrics programs

7 posts in this topic

August 30, 2015 - 

The Department of Homeland Security has outlined its vision for how its biometric-based programs will help improve the agency’s operational efficiency over the next decade, according to a report by GCN.

At the forefront of the agency’s biometrics program is its national biometric database, Automated Biometrics Identification System, which is joined by numerous research and development activities within the agency’s Science and Technology Directorate and operational components.

The DHS’ strategic framework will be used to identify and align key initiatives to meet strategic goals and objectives, as well as determine any discrepancies where action plans must be initiated.

The framework has three components including improving effectiveness of subject identification, transforming identity operations to optimize performance, and refining processes and policies to promote innovation.

The agency will update its outdated biometric collection systems with new technology, enabling the DHS to efficiently collect high-quality data.

DHS will also centralize access to federal and international biometric databases to decrease complexity, prevent duplication and redundancy, and standardize communications with partners.

Other objectives include improving real-time access from field location and implementing a layered, multimodal biometrics identity verification method beyond fingerprints.

As the noose tightens. DHS needs to be dismantled and tossed into the dustbins of history. These people are going to have every breath you take recorded somewhere and you can forget going off grid, no matter what kind of resources you've got. It's already pretty much that way now. I just love the way they word their goals, sounds like a ray of sunshine on a cloudy day, doesn't it? I need an emoticon of a burnt piece of toast but the banana will have to do for now.  :IBPlzqK:

Eyes Wide Shut: The challenge of humanitarian biometrics

BELGRADE, 26 August 2015 (IRIN) - Biometrics, for those of you who haven't spent the last 10 years swearing at the automated passport gates at Heathrow, is the use of human measurements for identification. The most familiar biometrics are fingerprints, but the computer-powered scanning of eyes and faces is being implemented in a growing range of contexts. The origins of modern biometrics lies in the identification of criminals, but it was the war on terror that turned biometrics into the $13.8 billion industry it is today.

As a result the technology has leapt ahead in recent years – and leapt into some surprising places. You might use your fingerprint to access your smartphone, but everybody gets fingerprinted now, including schoolchildren. Facebook can recognise you even if it can’t see your face, but even music festival organisers have decided that facial recognition technology is a good bet. Despite longstanding concerns about privacy, biometrics clearly have their uses, and a growing range of sectors have been implementing them – including the humanitarian industry.

Right after the false flag of 911 my company made components for retinal scanners, fingerprint scanners. With the technology they have today they can scan your brain waves and have a biometric print that can't be disguised by altering your appearance, or be copied and used to bypass a security system.

I figured as much, now it appears these things are ramping up to be unleashed on us all.

This windows 10 commercial gives a glimpse into what's being planned. Ease of accessibility yes, but massive control possibilities also.

You need a virtual reality when the real outdoors is too polluted to experience firsthand.
