- A summary of the ID verification/vetting challenge facing the DMV community;
- What has worked and failed?
- Where are the technological gains/improvements coming from, and where do they point to?
The importance of secure and reliable identification credentials was brought to the forefront of national security by the tragic events of September 11, 2001. The Department of Motor Vehicle (DMV) community, already working towards improvements in this task, responded to this tragedy and understood the ongoing responsibility and obligation to improve public safety and national security in North America further.
The American Association of Motor Vehicle Administrators (AAMVA) determined the need for a comprehensive framework of minimum requirements with enhanced recommendations to improve the quality, reliability, uniformity and security of the driver licensing process in North America. As a result, AAMVA compiled and produced a DL/ID Security Framework: A Package of Decisions Based on Best Practices, Standards, Specifications and Recommendations to Enhance Driver’s License Administration and Identification Security.
Over the past decade the DMVs have continued to make progress in their goals of ensuring that they know who their customers are, and that the ultimate goal of one license, one record, for one driver is being achieved. Verification systems have become more commonplace, but ‘holes-in-the-system’ remain. Working with industry partners, and technological advances, have had a tremendously positive impact. The future appears to be very bright and, as the interdependencies grow, what is done by the AAMVA community will benefit all.
Geoff Slagle works in cooperation with the North American Motor Vehicle Administrations and other government-issuing authorities on their identity management and identification security efforts. This includes continuing improvement in identification documents and credentials: identity proofing methodology; production equipment and materials; machine-readable technologies; biometrics; physical security features; and back-end databases in support of credentialing programs. He has extensive programmatic, policy, and operational experience in the identity management discipline.
