The TSA is testing out brighter uniforms, updated terrorist lists, and 30-millimeter wave machines that can see through clothing to ease the security line experience for passengers.
Airlines, which check passenger names against the list, will now be allowed to accept dates of birth from passengers to more thoroughly check information against the watch lists, Chertoff said. Once passengers have proven that they are not suspected terrorists, they will be able to print boarding passes at kiosks or at home, rather than going through a check-in line, Chertoff said.
Which makes me wonder how someone “proves” they are not a terrorist. None of these new features, being tested at BWI, make me feel more at ease or secure. What is “the security of the future” that makes you the least comfortable?
