William Knocke, Homeland Security Department spokesman, said online authorization would use the same information passengers provide to airlines — name, birth date, address and credit-card number — and an authorization code would be issued to travelers over the Internet to be used later to purchase airline tickets.
"It will be a real plus when it comes to security. It will give our front-line folks like the Customs and Border [Protection] more time to make assessments about whether a person traveling here merits additional security," Mr. Knocke said.
