The article focuses on the aspects to be considered to improve the dependability of an identification (ID) program. To ensure high quality ID program, the author regards the need to undergo the authentication verification process, requiring the formulation of standard criteria for the collection and confirmation of data for identification. It also outlines the standards of the identification process, tracing the hiring and retention of employees and their access to security sensitive areas.
