DSA is an alliance of government, industry and academia dedicated to securing the production, issuance, and authentication of identity, credentials, and currency to help combat fraud and other criminal acts by drawing upon the knowledge and technical disciplines of its members. Our efforts are focused on increasing awareness of the problems associated with counterfeiting and identity theft. DSA serves as a resource for public and private organizations that are seeking to build their understanding of existing and emerging solutions.
Our objective is to aid in the fight against terrorism, illegal immigration, identity theft, counterfeit currency, contraband goods, espionage, human trafficking, and other criminal acts that benefit from the use of fraudulent documents and identity. We maintain a globally recognized controlled-access glossary of security features and their attributes, available exclusively to members & government entities.
