Roadside Equipment --> Border Inspection System:
traveler credentials


traveler credentials (Information Flow): Traveler identification, including trusted traveler program information, if applicable.

Roadside Equipment (Source Physical Object): 'Roadside Equipment' (RSE) represents the Connected Vehicle roadside devices that are used to send messages to, and receive messages from, nearby vehicles using Dedicated Short Range Communications (DSRC) or other alternative wireless communications technologies. Communications with adjacent field equipment and back office centers that monitor and control the RSE are also supported. This device operates from a fixed position and may be permanently deployed or a portable device that is located temporarily in the vicinity of a traffic incident, road construction, or a special event. It includes a processor, data storage, and communications capabilities that support secure communications with passing vehicles, other field equipment, and centers.

Border Inspection System (Destination Physical Object): 'Border Inspection System' represents data systems used at the border for the inspection of people or goods. It supports immigration, customs (trade), agricultural, and FDA inspections as applicable. It includes sensors and surveillance systems to identify and classify drivers and their cargo as they approach a border crossing, the systems used to interface with the back-office administration systems and provide information on status of the crossing or events.

This contains sensitive information on multiple individuals that could potentially be used to impersonate them or steal their identity. If anyone other than the intended parties can view this information it could lead to a large financial cost for many individuals. The identity reported by this transmission might not actually be the individual in the vehicle. This categorization assumes that this information is the information from the OBE->RSE flow of the same name, forwarded by the RSE; if a border officer can add information at the RSE that gets sent to the BIS, then the integrity requirement could potentially be raised to HIGH as this flow might be used to make law enforcement decisions involving the use of force. We assume that if this information is added it is added at the BIS rather than the RSE, so this integrity requirement on this flow is MEDIUM. Assuming it is still possible to validate travelers in the way that is currently possible this is acceptable as a MEDIUM. If when this system is down, the border cannot process any individuals then this would need to be a HIGH because completely shutting down the border could cause significant financial problems.
