BTC -- This week was a big week for RFID and biometric identity deployment, especially in US schools.

More internal fissures reveal themselves in NIST's public accountability structures from an ongoing IDESG dialogue for the NSTIC pilots programs including the CDSII [Cross Sector Digital Identity Initiative].

Finally, evidence of online ID policy laundering unfolds as several nations are under governance influence to incorporate mass adoption of biometric ID credentials as national identity articles for banking.

Here's a history brief on where biometrics got it's start, who is martialing online ID authentication markets in world banking and the role global banks play in the managing the global population growth.

UK - They are currently working with EU standardization for privacy here.

UAE - They've already moved their national ID program to a Stasi-like program, reporting their neighbors if they are suspected of being non-citizens - 52,000 children were enrolled in the last 33 days. "The National Identification Authority, (Nida) has argued the public to visit their registration stations to make sure of their names and register objections against those thought to be non citizens" 




BTC COMMENTS - "... parents are the hidden accountable parties here. The voices of the parents are not being represented in this article. They vote, pay the taxes and can come to the aid of their children's privacy. However, here the burden of resistance is squarely on minor children who have no rights in that system. That's why they are just a few shaves above cattle management. If you want to hear the complicity or the resistance go to where people are either giving up their power or fighting for their kids future with less e-surveillance."
