Overview

Following the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, the Aviation and Transportation Security Act (ATSA) was enacted in November 2001 and required TSA to work with airport operators to strengthen access controls to secure areas, and to consider using biometric access control systems, or similar technologies, to verify the identity of individuals who seek to enter a secure airport area. In response, TSA established the TWIC program in December 2001. TWIC was originally envisioned as a nationwide transportation worker identity solution to be used by approximately 6 million credential holders across all modes of transportation, including seaports, airports, rail, pipeline, trucking, and mass transit facilities.
