Future Interoperability of Terrorist Biometric Systems (2008)

  1. 1. Future Interoperability of KST Biometric Systems January 31, 2008 Biometrics.gov
  2. 2. NSTC Subcommittee on Biometrics and Identity Management ► National Science & Technology Council ► Cabinet-level Council is the principal means within the executive branch to coordinate S&T policy across the diverse entities that make up the Federal R&D enterprise. ► Established by Executive Order 12881 ► Subcommittee on Biometrics and Identity Management ► For Biometrics: ■ Provide technical leadership in the development and implementation of interoperable federal biometric systems; ■ Develop and implement multi-agency investment strategies that advance biometric sciences to meet public and private needs; ■ Develop and adopt biometric standards as specified in the NSTC Policy for Enabling the Development, Adoption and Use of Biometric Standards; ■ Develop consensus strategic outreach plans for biometrics, including collaboration on www.biometrics.gov, the annual Biometric Consortium Conference and other events; Biometrics.gov
  3. 3. Subcommittee Organizational Framework Co-Chair (Biometrics) Co-Chair (Overall) Co-Chair (Identity Management) Brad Wing, DHS/US-VISIT Duane Blackburn, OSTP Jim Dray, NIST Executive Secretary Michelle Johnson, FBI (SETA) Emeritus Co-Chairs Kevin Hurst, OSTP Chris Miles, DHS S&T Subcommittee Department Leads IDENTITY MANAGEMENT TASK FORCE Interoperability Standards Biometrics RDT&E S&T Assistance Privacy Communications Biometrics.gov

  5. 5. Interoperability ► Definition ► IEEE defines interoperability as: “the ability of two or more systems or components to exchange information and to use the information that has been exchanged.” ► Challenges ► Policy Issues ► Technological Hurdles ► Agency Business Objectives Biometrics.gov
  6. 6. Historic Perspective ► Pre 9/11 ► Legal/procedural restrictions separated intelligence and criminal investigations ► Need for information sharing and interoperability not emphasized ► Policy Drivers For Interoperability ► USA PATRIOT Act (Oct. 2001) ► Homeland Security Information Act of 2002 ► U.S. Attorney General Directive (Apr. 2002) ► Presidential Executive Order 13388 (Oct. 2005) ► HSPD-6 ► HSPD-11 ► ISE ► NIP Biometrics.gov
