Questioned Identification Document and Link Database
Terrorists and their supporters often use false or forged identity documents to cross international borders. The Questioned Identification Document and Link Database is a centralized reference merging existing Federal and ICPO-Interpol databases of genuine and counterfeit identification documents (passports, driver’s licenses, credit cards). The system permits real-time comparison of suspect documents with images of genuine and other known counterfeit documents. It also provides comprehensive information on specific features to determine the authenticity of suspect documents, as well as link analysis data on similar cases. Access to the system is available through the U.S. Secret Service, who provided most of the existing databases. For additional information please fill out the Contact Information Form.
