Through the history of aviation the importance of airport security has steadily increased. Since the terrorist attack of September 11, 2001, many changes have taken place at airports to prevent such an attack from occurring again. The purpose of this paper is to: outline airport security procedures, discuss the different technologies involved with airport security, as well as examine the components of airport security. In addition I will also discuss the Transportation Security Administration’s role in our nation’s airport security.
Jeremy Wickins writes, “The Ethics of Biometrics: The Risk of Social Exclusion from the Widespread Use of Electronic Identification.” In the article “The Ethics of Biometrics: The Risk of Social Exclusion from the Widespread Use of Electronic Identification,” Wickins writes the possible segregation of people when biometrically scanned due to the biometrics systematic flaws. Jeremy Wickins attempts to prove that biometric identification system is flawed because of not being able to encompass the whole populace for some being disabled, religious preferences, not following protocols, not willing to corporate, and the homeless. Thus, Wickins claims the biometric data entered into the system is incorrect, creating false reporting which in turn denies
With the technological advances that America possesses, an extremely safe nation is feasible. Biometric devices are one example of how our defense could be strengthened massively. For example, before anyone arrives on any form of transportation in the United States, they should be made to check in with a biometric device in order to confirm that they are legitimate citizens. A biometric device recognizes features that are impossible to disguise such as fingerprints or the retina located in a person’s eye. The use of biometric devices would easily identify a person and allow the security at airports to absolutely determine who is boarding the aircraft. This would also eliminate all non-legitimate foreigners boarding vessels and aircraft without question (Sims 32-37).

The purpose of Airport Security is to make sure that people at an airport or an airline gets to their flight safe from anything that threatens to put their lives or the lives of others in danger. Improving Airport security has been an issue ever since terrorist hijacked three planes in the U.S. airlines on September 11, 2001. Airport Security has gradually improved but ever since the terrorist attack in America on September 11 it showed the people that Airport Security must improve drastically in order for casualties from an attack like this must never happen again.This issue impacts all of the Airlines in the country due to the fact that if an attack like 9/11 happened to the American Airlines than it can to any country in the world. Many countries try to improve their airport security based off of how effective other airlines in different countries’ security protocols are. The United States’ security airline company the T.S.A is working on ways to improve Airport security through technology and the cooperation of other countries.Experts believe that by being analytic and analyzing the weaknesses of each airport they can effectively develop a solution to improve it.
what is meant by biometric security system as well as the advantages and disadvantages that
Airport security is currently seen as one of the biggest inconveniences attributed to travel. However a brief look back in history to some of the conditions frequent flyers were subjected to makes modern air travel look like a breeze.
However, identification systems are more often deployed in large-scale environments, anywhere from tens of thousands to tens of millions of users. In these applications, biometric identification is not replacing passwords or PINs – it is pro- viding new types of fraud-reducing functionality.
I have noticed vast differences between different airport’s securities, and wanted to further research the two different sides of the airport security debate.
There are several challenges in aviation security that I will discuss in this paper. The challenges in aviation security are identify the security threat, securing perimeter, and The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) screening related to passenger flow. I will also discuss possible solutions to each challenge that may be used in the future of aviation. Security could vary from place to place, so in this paper I will discuss the challenges within in the United States.
In order to get consumers and merchants to use biometric payment there has to be benefits in using it. With identity theft and fraudulent activity increasing, biometric-based solutions can provide increased security and confidentiality of personal and financial data. This is more secure than PIN numbers, passwords, social security numbers and signatures. Biometrics can authenticate an individual trait that are difficult, if not impossible, to copy or forge.
Aviation security primarily exists in order to prevent criminal activities in airports and on aircrafts in general. Civil aviation security is geared towards preventing criminal activities like sir piracy or hijacking, attack on passengers and aviation employees, and destruction of aircrafts. While aviation security was a minor concern in the initial years of aviation, it has become a major issue of concern in the modern world. Actually, civil aviation security is a high priority for air travelers, the international air community, and the Federal Government. The increased focus and concern on aviation security has been fueled by a series of events that have happened throughout the history of aviation. These events include hijackings, assault on passengers and aviation workers, and terrorism.
This report is about security at airports. It contains a useful information regarding airport security regulations such as both hand and hold luggage restrictions and list of items that are allowed to be taken on a board. This report also presents a brief changes that had happened in airports security before terrorists attack on 9th of September 2001. Additionally there is described the recent project- Total Airport Security System (TASS), which aims to improve the security at the airport area using very advanced technology structures.
Terrorism has become one of the biggest threats to the security of any entity, especially after the incident of 9/11. Terrorism is that kind of violent activity which has a strong impact on a wide range of audience. By doing this activity randomly, terrorist frighten the audience and increase its angst. Terrorist depend upon various methods like assassination, threats, armed attacks, hostage taking etc. domestic terrorism starts and ends in one country but transnational terrorism involves many countries. That’s why 9/11 incident has transnational nature as in it was planned in some country, implemented in USA and victims were from 80 different countries (Enders, 2004). Airports are one of the most probable victims of terrorism. In such attack, passengers become totally helpless and due to the severity and unique condition of airplane attack, it spread horror on the large extent (Kaplan, 2006). Many developed countries started to plan and implement a better security operation administration for their airports after that incident. USA established a new Transportation Security Administration (TSA) in order to make a better and secure airport environment. (Simon, 2007). Similarly UK also passed Anti-terrorism, Crime and Security Act 2001, whose purpose was to improve security management at
