With the "missing" laptop recovered, the Transportation Security Administration is resuming enrollment in its Clear Registered Traveler program at San Francisco and other airports.
Enrollment in the traveler fast-pass program was halted after a laptop used for enrollment was reported missing July 26. It was found last week in the locked office at the San Francisco airport from whence it apparently had gone missing. The San Francisco Chronicle reports that the case is being treated as theft, nevertheless.
The TSA says the program's parent, Verified Identity Pass, has met its requirements for encryption on all computers used in the program, so enrollment can resume. But it's spot checking the program's security at all airports, just to make sure.
