Combating fraud: secure credentials fit for the future

 

BLUE ROOM - Ballroom C
Day 3 - May 2

Counterfeiting of government issued identification driver’s licenses is a serious problem around the United States – many of these fake IDs are nearly impossible to detect. Underage college students use them at bars and liquor stores. Criminals use them to board planes, wire money and avoid detection.

This panel will explore recently intercepted counterfeiting cases, how fraudulent driver’s licenses are detected, new methods used by counterfeiters, the construction of various counterfeit DLs and techniques for making credentials more secure.

In a world where technology is constantly evolving, counterfeiters are exposed to the latest and greatest computers and equipment more than ever before. From advanced graphic software to sophisticated 3D printing hardware, technologies that were once reserved for high-end commercial industries and government applications can now be easily purchased in minutes on Amazon or eBay. It is estimated that there are more than 85 million individuals in the U.S. subscribed to an Amazon Prime membership. This estimate suggests that almost half of the households in the U.S. can purchase a computer or printer within seconds and receive that device in two days, free of charge, without ever leaving their homes.

How does rapidly changing technology and ease of access affect the work of the border inspector and forensic document examiner? This presentation will provide an overview of current driver’s license fraud trends in the United States. The authors aim to provide the attendees with a better understanding of the types of equipment innovative counterfeiters are using to simulate security features on driver’s licenses, and discuss ideas on how to improve and/or eliminate these issues. Various technologies will be discussed throughout the presentation, and the authors will illustrate the importance of inspectors and document examiners staying abreast of rapidly advancing technologies.

•    Types of security features often counterfeited in U.S. driver’s licenses;
