SafeNet to Provide Products, Services for TSA

SafeNet announced that it was chosen by Security Biometric Clearing Network to secure and support the TSA's Registered Traveler program

BALTIMORE -- SafeNet, Inc., a global leader in information security, announced today that it was chosen by Security Biometric Clearing Network (SBCN) to secure and support the Transportation Security Administration’s (TSA) Registered Traveler program.

SBCN provides the security and biometric services of the TSA’s Registered Traveler system. The Registered Travel program was set up by the TSA to allow passengers to voluntarily submit to a government screening process. Once approved, passengers can take advantage of an expedited screening process at participating airports.

In order to best protect the information on America’s transportation system and the identities of travelers participating in the Registered Traveler program, SBCN required the highest level of hardware security available. SBCN selected SafeNet to provide a key management and cryptographic acceleration solution that featured government certifications, scalable performance, role-based access control and role separation to protect the chain of custody and provide non-repudiation of sensitive transactions.

“SafeNet stepped up when we needed a partner. They provided a quality product, the real world experience and excellent customer service to SBCN. They listened to us to get an understanding of what we wanted to accomplish and then worked with us to achieve our goals. The level of service continued after deployment. They are a true partner,” said Patrick J. Osborne, CIO, SBCN.
