So who likes them?
Ryan Singel catches an AP article on RFID passports:
On the latest passports, the agency has “taken a ‘keep it simple’ approach, which, unfortunately, really disregards a basic privacy approach and leaves out the basic security methods we would have expected to have been incorporated for the security of the documents,” said Neville Pattinson, an executive at Axalto North America, which is working on a prototype U.S. electronic passport.
So I’m just curious. If the privacy-aware don’t like them; if the people making them don’t like them; if the security experts don’t like them; who’s pushing this crap? The identity thieves union?
