Department of State: Undercover Tests Reveal Significant Vulnerabilities in States’ Passport Issuance Process
Gregory D. Kutz (au)
A genuine U.S. passport permits its owner to travel freely in and out of the U.S., prove U.S. citizenship, obtain further identification documents, and set up bank accounts, among other things. The auditor was asked to proactively test the effectiveness of State's passport issuance process to determine whether the process is vulnerable to fraud. The investigation shows that terrorists or criminals could steal an American citizen's identity, use basic counterfeiting skills to create fraudulent documentation for that identity, and obtain a genuine U.S. passport from the Dept. of State. The auditor conducted 4 tests simulating this approach and was successful in obtaining a genuine U.S. passport in each case.
