The Maryland Department of Transportation Motor Vehicle Administration (MDOT MVA) and MorphoTrust USA have set up IdentoGO centers to offer TSA PreCheck and Transportation Worker Identification Credential (TWIC) enrollment at six MDOT MVA locations in Maryland.
MorphoTrust USA, part of OT-Morpho, has enrolled five million travelers in the TSA PreCheck program, three million in the past year alone. The trusted traveler program allows U.S. citizens, U.S. nationals and Lawful Permanent Residents (LPR) to quickly move through security at U.S. airports in expedited lines without removing shoes, laptops, liquids, belts and light jackets. The enrollment service is run exclusively by IdentoGO, a service made by MorphoTrust.
The TWIC program provides a tamper-resistant biometric credential to maritime workers requiring unescorted access to secure areas of port facilities, outer continental shelf facilities and vessels regulated under the Maritime Transportation Security Act, and all U.S. Coast Guard credentialed merchant mariners. To obtain a TWIC, an individual must provide biographic and biometric information such as fingerprints, sit for a digital photograph and successfully pass a security threat assessment conducted by TSA.
OT-Morpho is the result of the merger between OT (Oberthur Technologies) and Safran Identity & Security (Morpho) completed earlier this year. Temporarily named “OT-Morpho”, the new company will unveil its new name in September.
