Cognitive Checkpoint: Emerging Technologies for Biometric-Enabled Watchlist Screening

Yanushkevich, Svetlana, Sundberg, Kelly, Twyman, Nathan, Guest, Richard, Shmerko, Vlad (2019) Cognitive Checkpoint: Emerging Technologies for Biometric-Enabled Watchlist Screening. Computers & Security, 85 . pp. 372-385. ISSN 0167-4048. (doi:10.1016/j.cose.2019.05.002) (KAR id:74073)


This paper revisits the problem of individual risk assessment in the layered security model. It contributes to the concept of balancing security and privacy via cognitive-centric machine called an ’e-interviewer’. Cognitive checkpoint is a cyber-physical security frontier in mass-transit hubs that provides an automated screening using all types of identity (attributed, biometric, and biographical) from both physical and virtual worlds. We investigate how the development of the next generation of watchlist for rapid screening impacts a sensitive balancing mechanism between security and privacy. We identify directions of such an impact, trends in watchlist technologies, and propose ways to mitigate the potential risks.
