Cleared Security Platform approved by TSA

Priva Technologies : 20 March, 2008  (New Product)
Biometric technology from Priva to speed up airport security procedures for Registered Traveller Program members.
Priva Technologies has been approved by the Transportation Security Administration as a service provider for its Registered Traveller program, according to Jeff Minushkin, Priva's chairman and CEO.

"Our Cleared Security Platform was designed to be the most powerful and efficient credentialing and authentication technology available today, making it ideal for airport security screening," according to Minushkin. "It can significantly speed up security checks at airports for travelers who qualify for the program at the same time making the security checks themselves more robust than is possible with any other existing technology."

At the heart of the platform, he explains, is a security processor, the ClearedChip, which was the world's first commercially available biometrically-enabled microchip to have achieved the government's FIPS140-2 Level 3 certification. A distinctive feature of the chip is its ability to protect the mechanisms that govern information processing on the chip, to identify and capture intrusion and to protect the privacy of users' credentials and their biometric data.

Priva is one of a handful of service providers approved by the TSA for its Registered Traveller program. Minushkin says the company welcomes the opportunity to deploy "what we believe is a security screening system that is unmatched in its strength, its versatility and its ability to protect the privacy of users."

He would not speculate on how soon the Platform will be ready for widespread deployment but said that Priva is moving forward with deliberate speed to enable what he says will be "the first truly efficient and effective portal for easing the security squeeze at airports for trusted travellers while providing a solid value proposition to customers, airports and airlines alike."
