Identity Access Management Innovation Takes the Magic Out of Authentication Automation
Imagine getting to the airport for an international flight and boarding the plane without having to show your passport or boarding pass. Creating such a solution is one of the line items on the U.S. Customs and Border Patrol’s (CBP) five-year plan, and advances in biometric authentication are believed to be the key ingredient. But if the idea is to replace every part of the process where a paper ID, ticket, or tracking number would normally be fashioned, there also needs to be a database to authenticate front-end user inputs. This is one of the reasons why international rather than domestic air travel is first on the docket; there is not a central repository for state-issued IDs.
