What Did TSA Know, and When Did They Know It?
Recently, Slate had an article on how to alter your boarding passes and bypass the silly watch lists. It was picked up by BoingBoing, and it turns out that Bruce Schneier talked about it 18 months ago.
Recently, I was talking to a friend who started telling me about…how to alter your boarding passes. What makes this interesting is that my friend is in a role where he was able to make some phone calls, and draw this attack to the attention of very senior officials of TSA. He named names, and showed me a presentation that he and his colleagues gave to senior TSA managers last February. The presentation was in depth and detailed. So regardless of if they’re reading Bruce’s blog, Slate, or BoingBoing, this was brought to them.
