Privacy Act of 1974; Department of Homeland Security/ALL-037 E-Authentication Records System of Records
Document Number: 2014-18703
Type: Notice
Date: 2014-08-11
Agency: Department of Homeland Security, Office of the Secretary
In accordance with the Privacy Act of 1974, the Department of Homeland Security proposes to establish a new system of records titled, Department of Homeland Security/ALL-037 E-Authentication Records System of Records. This system of records allows the Department of Homeland Security to collect, maintain, and retrieve records about individuals, including members of the public, who electronically authenticate their identities. The information in this system of records includes data collected by programs and applications for use when the Department of Homeland Security or a trusted third-party performs some or all of the functions required to enroll, issue, and maintain a credential on DHS's behalf that can be used by an individual to electronically authenticate his or her identity to DHS systems. These programs and applications include: The Department of Homeland Security's Homeland Security Information Network, which is a trusted network for homeland security mission operations to share sensitive but unclassified information used by federal, state, local, tribal, territorial, international, and private sector homeland security partners to manage operations, analyze data, and send alerts and notices; the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services E-Verify Self Check, which is a free service that allows individuals to learn about their work authorization status information; and the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services myE-Verify, which is a free service that allows individuals to create an account and access additional features beyond Self Check concerning the use of their personally identifiable information in E-Verify and Self Check such as the ability to lock a Social Security number to prevent its use in E-Verify and Self Check. Additional Department programs or applications may also use third-party authentication. In addition, the Department of Homeland Security also proposes to consolidate the E-Verify Self Check System of Records (DHS/USCIS-013), last published in the Federal Register on February 16, 2011 (76 FR 9604), into this newly established E-Authentication Records System of Records. As a result of this consolidation, by this notice, DHS intends to remove DHS/USCIS-013 from its inventory of systems of records. The newly established system will be included in the Department of Homeland Security's inventory of record systems.
Privacy Act of 1974; Department of Homeland Security U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services-011 E-Verify Program System of Records
Document Number: 2014-18701
Type: Notice
Date: 2014-08-11
Agency: Department of Homeland Security, Office of the Secretary
In accordance with the Privacy Act of 1974, the Department of Homeland Security proposes to update and reissue a current Department of Homeland Security system of records titled, ``Department of Homeland Security/U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services011 E-Verify Program System of Records.'' The U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services E-Verify program allows employers to electronically verify the employment authorization of newly hired employees. To provide individuals the ability to learn about their work authorization status information, the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services also operates a free service called Self-Check. The U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services is launching enhanced features to the Self Check service that permits individuals who successfully complete a Self Check identification process the opportunity to establish a myE-Verify account. The information collected to register and maintain a myE- Verify account is covered by the ``Department of Homeland Security/ ALL037 E-Authentication System of Records'' published elsewhere in the Federal Register. U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services is updating this System of Records Notice to include the operational data previously covered by ``Department of Homeland Security U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services013 Self Check System of Records,'' which is being consolidated into DHS/ALL 037 E-Authentication System of Records and this System of Records Notice. The Self Check query, query results, and Self Lock transaction history will now be maintained by this updated System of Records Notice. The initial launch of myE-Verify will allow access to a feature called ``Self Lock,'' which enables an account holder to prevent the use of his or her Social Security number in E-Verify and Self Check. Additional myE-Verify account features such as Case History, Case Tracker, and Document Expiration Reminders will be made available in future releases. The Department of Homeland Security is updating this Privacy Act System of Records Notice for the E-Verify Program in order to provide notice that E-Verify is updating the ``Category of Individuals,'' ``Category of Records,'' ``Purpose(s),'' and ``Record Source Categories'' to account for additional information necessary to operate myE-Verify account features. E-Verify is updating the ``Category of Individuals'' to include individuals that successfully use the E-Verify Self Check service to check employment eligibility, which was previously covered by the E-Verify Self Check System of Records, and individuals who have locked their Social Security number in E-Verify. E-Verify is also updating the ``Category of Records'' to include Self Check query information, which was previously covered by the E-Verify Self Check System of Records Notice, and Social Security number lock information. E-Verify is updating the ``Purpose(s)'' to include providing employment authorization information to individuals seeking to check employment eligibility under the Immigration and Naturalization Act. This system will also enable individuals to access features concerning the use of their personally identifiable information in E-Verify and Self Check, such as the ability to lock their Social Security number to prevent its use in E-Verify and Self Check. This updated system will be included in the Department of Homeland Security's inventory of record systems.
Privacy Act of 1974; Department of Homeland Security Transportation Security Administration-002 Transportation Security Threat Assessment System System of Records
Document Number: 2014-18699
Type: Notice
Date: 2014-08-11
Agency: Department of Homeland Security, Office of the Secretary
In accordance with the Privacy Act of 1974, the Department of Homeland Security proposes to update and reissue a current Department of Homeland Security system of records titled, ``Department of Homeland Security/Transportation Security Administration002 Transportation Security Threat Assessment System of Records.'' This system of records allows the Department of Homeland Security/Transportation Security Administration to collect and maintain records related to security threat assessments, employment investigations, and evaluations that the Transportation Security Administration conducts on certain individuals for security purposes. For example, individuals who apply for a Transportation Worker Identification Credential or a Hazardous Materials Endorsement must undergo a security threat assessment, and records associated with the assessment are covered by this system. TSA is making modifications to the ``Purposes'' section of the system of records to reflect the Department of Homeland Security's use of information to more readily and effectively carry out the Department of Homeland Security's national security, law enforcement, immigration, and benefits missions. Also, two categories of records that were previously listed in the ``Categories of individuals covered by the system'' section are being moved to the ``Categories of records'' section. Finally, this notice includes non-substantive changes to simplify the formatting and text of the previously published notice. Portions of this system are exempt under 5 U.S.C. 552a(k)(1) and (k)(2) as reflected in the final rule published in the Federal Register on June 25, 2004. This updated system will continue to be included in the Department of Homeland Security's inventory of record systems.
