DoD Trashes $420 Million TSA Security Program

TWIC not secure enough for Defense Department use


The beleaguered Transportation Worker Identification Credential program, known by the initials TWIC, has been dealt a serious blow with a determination by the Department of Defense that it doesn't meet DoD standards, and won't be recognized for department purposes.

The U.S. Department of the Army issued a Federal Register notice that the TWIC card will no longer be used to authenticate users for access to certain Department of Defense computer systems.
