Retinal scans. Fingerprint identification. A few years ago these things seemed like something out of a science fiction movie. Today, they continue to grow as important parts of our risk-based approach to security.

Biometric identification allows us to verify a person is who they say they are by using their own unique set of identifiers - whether fingerprints, iris scans or a combination of the two. We continue to test this technology at airports and harbors across the country, allowing us to control access to important facilities.
