There’s a lot of confusion around the Internet about the FBI’s recently announced idHSC program (seen by some as ldHSC), where you can voluntarily submit your fingerprints at the post office (USPS) to find out what agencies have associated with your fingerprints. Here’s the real info.
In June the U.S. Office of Personnel Management (OPM) revealed that there had been a massive security breach, exposing the personal personnel data of at least 21.5 million government employees. The data included social security numbers, names, and clearance information. What was less well known is that the data also included fingerprint records, and this week it has been revealed that the hackers got 5.6 million fingerprints.
