    I sat through an all day presentation back in 2006 from Experian geared toward NSA and CIA on data integrity and data mining for identity verification.

    It was scary then and that was 6 years ago, when I was still an underwriter for a government agency.

    They have been trying to sell their verification services for more than the 6 years I've known about it. There's also an OMB directive about verified users Seems like Social Security went about 10 steps beyond the OMB Federal CIO requirements, but the goal is still the same, to use a 3rd party to do the verification and not the government.
