One out of every 25 passengers are misidentified by the system of face recognition implemented by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) of the united States in nine of their airports, according to a report from the Georgetown University (Washington, DC).

Only in the John F. Kennedy airport (JFK), New York, which have set the researchers for their report, every day 1.632 passengers face to be delayed the wrong way or being barred from access to the boarding area for the failure of the facial-recognition system, which identifies the wrong way to one person out of every 25 even using valid credentials, according to data from DHS cited in the report.

If you meet both of the plans provided by the Department of Homeland Security, all the travelers who travel abroad, both residents of the united States as well as foreigners, will be subjected to a scanner, facial recognition.

According to the research, this biometric system is installed at nine airports in the country (Atlanta, Chicago, Las Vegas, Miami, New York, Houston and Washington DC) and has of course a cost of approximately one billion dollars. What it does is compare your face scan to the database of the DHS to prevent impersonation.

The responsible of the report understand, as explained in the report, that this program does not comply with the legislation in force and that, in fact, lacks a legislative framework governing it. According to what is established in the statutes of the Congress of USA, without an explicit authorization, the Department of Homeland Security can’t scan the faces of americans when they go abroad. The report questions, in addition, problems in the privacy of the people a system that they understand as invasive.
