TSA Lied About Protecting Passenger Data

Schneier on Security: TSA Lied About Protecting Passenger Data

Ouch. Looks like the TSA lied to everyone, and in fact did not protect passenger data very well. Plus, it was using real passenger data from JetBlue, Delta, American Airlines, and a ton of others; this, while telling everyone that, at different times, it was not using real data, it was not using certian kinds of passenger data, and the Freedom Of Information Act staff published a notice on their site stating that the TSA had no JetBlue passenger records in September 2003 -- and left it there until the following year, despite finding out that there were records in May 2004.
