Strip‐​Search Images Stored

The Transportation Security Administration will be sure to point out that it was not them---it was the U.S. Marshals Service---that kept "tens of thousands of images recorded with a millimeter wave system at the security checkpoint of a single Florida courthouse," according to Declan McCullagh of C|Net news.

The TSA has taken pains to make sure that their use of strip-search machines does not produce compromising images of the traveling public, but rules are made to be broken. How do you protect privacy in the use of a technology that is fundamentally designed to invade privacy?
