Proximity Passport Perception Problems Persist
Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) enabled passports have many inherent benefits, however, some fears of identity theft and other potential information breech perceptions exist.
The confusion and concerns about the potential of anyone being able to retrieve private, personal information "from a distance" may just be a matter of education - says an ABI Research Report.
RFID may sound like a good idea for automating the process of identification through our nation's checkpoints, but when it comes to the internal security of our country and the protection of our identity ... this just isn't the same application process as a "Mobil Speedpass" or a freeway tollway access payment verification.
Typical, the federal government remains clueless to the real issues that surround the application of this proximity technology.
As in real estate (location, location, location) the axiom fot the implementation of a new technology is "application, application, application!"
