TSA's Transportation Worker Identification Credential (TWIC) Program Ensures No Fraudulent Duplicate Enrollments Using ID Solutions Technology

MIAMI BEACH, Fla., June 17 /PRNewswire/ -- ID Solutions, Inc., the world's leader in low-cost, high-performance solutions for trusted credential assurance, reported that it has been awarded a contract to supply critical software to the Transportation Security Agency's (TSA's) TWIC program. The award is for a minimum of the originally estimated 850,000 enrollees, while contract options extend the scope to the 2 million enrollment level and beyond.

ID Solution's ID Search Engine(TM) provides fingerprint match services to TSA's TWIC enrollment applications to assure that none of these secure credentials are issued to a given applicant more than once, and that all individuals in the TWIC database are unique and unduplicated. This requires matching each new enrollee against all others already enrolled, approving new enrollments only when they are unique and disallowing frauds when they already exist in the approved/enrolled database.

As of this date, TSA has processed over 340,000 applications through the ID Search Engine, with current workload in excess of 3000 applications per day.

Today's TWIC program, and ID Solutions' contribution to it, is considered to be an initial phase covering US Port operations only, while extensions to other segments of critical transportation infrastructure, including interstate trucking, airports, trains and busses, highways and bridges, etc. are expected in coming years. In all, industry estimates of total enrollments are in the 12 to 15 million range.
