Coast Guard Secures Facilities With Biometrics and RFID

Using a voluntary biometric identification card program called RapidGate, the Coast Guard headquarters in Washington, DC, has identified “three potential vendor employees who had served time for murder, one registered sex offender, two working under false names and others with multiple identities or who had lied about their criminal history,” reports Government Computer News. The Coast Guard’s Fort Lewis, WA, facility uses RapidGate’s “biometrics to authenticate and identify vendors” and radio-frequency identification “to track vehicles.” The RapidGate program “likely will be expanded to other facilities.”
