Overview[edit | edit source]

The Aviation Security Biometrics Working Group (ASBWG) was established after 9/11 by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) to perform an initial analysis of the efficacy of integrating biometrics into airport security systems. The rapid (less than two months) work of this ad hoc group not only provided a reality check for the FAA and a foundation for biometric decisions in the soon-to-be-created Transportation Security Administration (TSA), but also identified several difficult issues that would need dedicated attention by government agencies for some time to come.[1]
