ABSTRACT
The article discusses privacy concerns related to the body scanners that are used in U.S. airports. Comparisons are made between the body scanners used by the U.S. Transportation Security Administration (TSA) to scanners used in European airports which protect more of a passenger's privacy. Before the body scanners were used by airports the public interest research group Electronic Privacy Information Center (EPIC) wrote a letter to the U.S. Department of Homeland Security in which they discussed their privacy concerns about the body scanners.
