Homeland Security, Financial Privacy, and Identity Theft Laws


Identity documents and systems provide information about a person that can be used to tell who that person is. In the United States, drivers' licenses, issued by individual states, are the most commonly issued cards used for personal identification by government and private entities. Other examples include cards issued to identify legal immigrants, deliver benefits, and secure access to facilities or services.

Information about kinds of identification systems, authentication, verification, security and privacy will be made available through these web pages. (Source:
