What personally identifiable information (PII) will TSA collect and retain as part of the LAS test?

TSA will collect only a real-time image of the passenger’s face, the photograph from the passenger’s identity document, and limited information from the identity document. Data collected during the test will be converted into a non-identifying format and transferred to S&T for analysis. TSA will not separately retain the biometric or biographic data, except for storing it for transfer to S&T.
