    Upset with being frisked and having a naked image taken of you at airports?

    Increasingly, stringent air security screening methods such as these are under question. And they're not just being questioned by travelers upset at being groped. A consensus is building among the airline industry, business and leisure travel groups and even top government officials that something needs to change.

    The alternative they're looking to: traveler verification systems akin to trusted traveler programs, in which people's backgrounds are checked beforehand, and they verify who they are when they get ready to board a flight.
