FBI plans major database upgrade Bureau outlines interoperability plans and considers adding biometric data By Wilson P. Dizard III Aug 24, 2006 Related Links The draft plan for upgrading fingerprint systems Three steps to a unified systems Interim solution The interim Data Sharing Model (iDSM) will allow near-real-time sharing of biometric data between IDENT and IAFIS, scheduled to begin Sept. 3. The FBI will populate the iDSM with fingerprints of about 680,000 wanted subjects from IAF The Homeland Security and State departments also will contribute on subjects, such as aliens who have gone through a expedited removal process, or had their visas denied. When technically possible, DHS will add recidivists and the FBI w fingerprint records on known and suspected terrorists. Initial operating capability This phase will begin with the development of the infrastructure necessary to exchange the full range of biometric data between IDENT and IAFIS. Full operating capability This phase will incorporate the functions of the first two phases with full, automated information sharing.

The devils are in the details. The technical part was more straightforward, the business and policy parts have been pretty to Bush, CJIS The FBI's Criminal Justice Information Service Division is laying detailed plans for a comprehensive rev its massive fingerprint database that will enhance interoperability with the Homeland Security Departmen biometric records and clear the path for adding additional types of biometrics. To mark the major changes, the bureau plans to change the name of its Integrated Automated Fingerprint Identification System to Next Generation Identification. The systems upgrade will involve a procurement range of 'hundreds of millions of dollars' with a proposal request phase beginning next January, officials s 'We realized we needed a multimodal capability,' CJIS assistant director Tom Bush said. 'We have been v fingerprints database; primarily we are and we will be, because we have 50 million 10-print fingerprints o 'We want to be able to plug and play with the new biometrics as they mature,' he said. Bush noted that new biometric techniques such as facial recognition, iris scans, palm authentication and e now are gaining importance, and CJIS officials want their system to be ready to process them. CJIS has been planning the NGI upgrade for more than a year [GCN.com/670]. Observers note that the sy focus on meeting federal, state and local agency needs give it a better-than-average chance of success. Part of the reason for the upgrade is to reduce the IAFIS error factor of 2 percent. Demand for IAFIS fing searches has been increasing, partly because background checks are becoming more popular with corpora state legislatures. While Congress initially mandated a capacity level for IAFIS of 62,500 matches daily, busiest day so far has reached the 100,000 level.
