Jail Time for Boarding Pass Fake?

Filed under: — By Aviran Mordo @ 9:34 am

Congressman Edward Markey (D-Mass.) wants the federal government to arrest security researcher Christopher Soghoian for creating the Northwest Airline Boarding Pass Generator, a site which lets anyone create a facsimile of a Northwest Airlines boarding pass. Soghoian hoped to spur Congress to look closely at the nation’s aviation security policies, which he calls “security theater.”

Instead, Markey, a member of the House Homeland Security committee, wants the site shut down and Soghoian arrested.
