WikiLeaks has published a document of a CIA project called ‘ExpressLane’ that allows the agency to secretly extract biometric data from the NSA, the DHS, and the FBI as well as non-U.S. agencies.
The documents from ExpressLane were released by the international whistleblowing organization as part of its ongoing ‘Vault 7’ series on the CIA’s hacking capabilities.
he program is operated by a branch within the CIA called the Office of Technical Services (OTS) and provides a biometric collection system to partner intelligence services around the world “with the expectation for sharing of the biometric takes collected on the systems,” according to a file released by WikiLeaks.
The user guide for the tool states that the program was developed to support OTS in its efforts to verify that biometric data was being given to the CIA.
