"The goal of [Chris Paget's] research from the beginning was to show that RFID is unsuitable for security situations like this[U.S. identity]. Passport cards assign a unique identifier to each holder. This id can be read from a distance and coordinated with the holders other rfid items like their credit card. Any party can track someone holding these cards, and they don’t make border crossings any faster, since the cards still have to be checked in person.
The usa is now tracking its residents with the same respect given to items in walmart." - HACK A DAY
