Excerpt from NPR:
Before you get on a plane, you go through a number of layers of security. The airline and the TSA both check to make sure you are who your ID claims you are.
One of the methods the TSA uses is a version of a security check system that’s also used by IBM, Shell, and some of the world’s largest retailers when you apply for a store card.
The technology for these security checks is provided by a company called IDScan.net.
Believe it or not, IDScan.net is a New Orleans company. IDScan.net’s Co-founder and CEO Denis Petrov joins Peter on this edition of Out to Lunch.
