The City and County of Denver has contracted with Telos Identity Management Solutions (Telos ID) to provide Transportation Security Administration (TSA)-approved Designated Aviation Channeling (DAC) services for processing worker background checks at Denver International Airport (DEN).
Telos ID’s DAC services are designed to improve data integrity, increase the efficiency of credentialing operations and reduce costs. DAC services enable submissions of workers’ biographic and biometric data to conduct background checks, including subscriptions to the FBI Rap Back program, for individuals working in secure areas of U.S. commercial airports. Telos ID has supported DEN with DAC services since 2013, and with recent selection to continue services, will do so for an additional five years. DEN uses the DAC via integration with its identity management system (IdMS).
“The DAC services deployment at Denver International Airport is notable for its size and scope, specifically the integration with DEN’s IdMS, enabling efficient biographic, biometric, and Rap Back transmissions,” said Dawn E. Lucini, vice president of aviation security, Telos ID. “We have streamlined the TSA-required aviation worker background check process, while upholding the high security and customer service standards at DEN.”
As an encrypted, web-based solution, Telos ID’s DAC services meet TSA and Department of Homeland Security (DHS) requirements for handling personally identifiable information and biometrics. Its modular design supports each airport’s and air carrier’s needs, and users can perform multiple functions on one platform.
