SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Between January 1 and March 31, 2008, the Chief Privacy Officer of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) approved and published sixteen (16) Privacy Impact Assessments (PIAs) on the DHS Privacy Office Web site, http://www.dhs.gov/ privacy, under the link for ‘‘Privacy Impact Assessments.’’ These PIAs cover sixteen (16) separate DHS programs. Below is a short summary of those programs, indicating the DHS component responsible for the system, and the date on which the PIA was approved. Additional information can be found on the Web site or by contacting the Privacy Office. System: Whole Body Imaging. Component: Transportation Security Administration. Date of approval: January 2, 2008. The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) is conducting pilot operations to evaluate the use of various Whole Body Imaging (WBI) technologies, including backscatter xray and millimeter wave devices, to detect threat objects carried on persons VerDate Aug<31>2005 15:01 Jul 14, 2008 Jkt 214001 entering airport sterile areas. WBI creates an image of the full body, showing the surface of the skin and revealing objects that are on the body, not in the body. To mitigate the privacy risk associated with creating an image of the individual’s body, TSA isolates the Transportation Security Officer (TSO) viewing the image from the TSO interacting with the individual. During the initial phase of the pilot, individuals who must undergo secondary screening will be given the option of undergoing the normal secondary screening technique involving a physical pat down by a TSO or a screening by a WBI device. A subsequent phase will evaluate WBI technology for individuals undergoing primary screening. Individuals will be able to choose to undergo WBI screening in primary. System: Federal Flight Deck Officer Program. Component: Transportation Security Administration. Date of approval: January 10, 2008.
