DoD, DHS and FBI Highlight Identity Management Interoperability

Cloud Musings

During this week’s Federal Executive Forum, key decision makers from DoD, DHS and FBI highlighted identity management interoperability as their key priority for 2010. Panelist included:

  • Robert Mocny, Acting Director, US-VISIT Program Department of Homeland Security;
  • Stephen Morris, Criminal Justice Information Services Division, FBI; and
  • Thomas Dee, Director, Defense Biometrics, Office of the Secretary of Defense
In fulfilling his responsibility for provide policy and programmatic oversight on DoD biometric programs, Mr. Dee indicated that his priority was to institutionalize proven identity management capabilities honed in Iraq and Afghanistan.
Mr. Morris’ top priority is to establish interoperability among DoD, FBI and DHS biometric databases even though information is already shared daily during millions of transactions.
Citing the 10-finger print match capability with the FBI as a major improvement, Mr. Mocny echoed the other panelist adding that the next priority is to get a hardwire between the FBI Criminal Justice Information Services (CJIS), the DHS Automated Biometric Identification System (IDENT) and the DoD Automated Biometric Identification System (ABIS).
The complete show, “Identity Management-Progress & Best Practices“, will be webcast on October 27, 2009 at 2:00 pm.
