Questioned Identification Documents (QID) assists analysts in evaluating whether a document is counterfeit. Security personnel at airports, seaports, and borders use QID as a validation tool to view samples of internationally-issued identity documents. Specifically, it allows analysts to compare questionable documents against genuine documents, such as passports and driver's licenses. QID has Intranet connectivity as well as the capability to identify associations and patterns to determine if documents are genuine. This process provides suggestions to the analyst on what to look for in making a determination about the authenticity of a questioned document.
