digital border guard

A facial recognition system used in airports to flag when a person's face does not match their passport photo.

Historical perspective: In September 2018, new "digital border guards" at U.S. airports notched its first catch. The “imposter” passenger flew into Washington Dulles International Airport from São Paulo and presented a genuine French passport as his ID, but the system alerted customs officers that they didn't match.They then found the man’s real ID card from Congo in his shoe.
