VeriChip is a miniaturized radio
frequency identification device (RFID) that can be used
in a variety of security, financial, [commercial ?] emergency
identification and other applications. About the size of a grain
of rice, each VeriChip product contains a unique
verification number and will be available in several
formats, some of which will be insert able under the skin.
The verification number is captured by briefly passing a
proprietary scanner over the VeriChip. A small amount of radio
frequency energy passes from the scanner energizing the dormant
VeriChip, which then emits a radio frequency signal transmitting
the verification number. VeriChip Corporation is a wholly owned
subsidiary of Applied Digital Solutions.
The following article suggests needed safeguards for the implanted chip.

( NATIONAL ) IDENTITY CARDS
with BIOMETRIC IDENTIFICATION ..
UK Identity Cards
from there to here in no time (REAL ID )

As a Homeland Security measure, Congress is now considering HR 418, "The Real ID Act," which potentially makes the central government an ID consolidator by linking state DMV and other information databases. HR 418 has prompted an outcry from both conservative and liberal quarters concerning privacy and potential civil-liberties abuse, and the concerns are justifiable. As the volume of data collected for security purposes increases, we're certain to see a corresponding increase in efforts to gain unauthorized access to that data.
However, these complaints are too little too late. Each American already has a national ID card -- it's called a Social Security card.
The use of Social Security numbers for identification purposes was somewhat limited until 1962, when the Internal Revenue Service co-opted it for official taxpayer identification. Ten years later, the notice "For Social Security Purposes -- Not For Identification" was removed from Social Security cards.
PIV ID for all federal employees
The Interagency Advisory Board (IAB), made up of smart card leaders from major U.S. federal agencies, unanimously voted to approve SP800-73 -- a key specification for the Personal Identity Verification (PIV) project. PIV refers to the implementation of smart card and biometric-enabled ID credentials for all government employees. It was mandated by the President in a document titled, Homeland Security Presidential Directive (HSPD12).
Ron Paul : The National ID Trojan Horse
Supporters claim the national ID scheme is voluntary. However, any state that opts out will automatically make non-persons out of its citizens. The citizens of that state will be unable to have any dealings with the federal government because their ID will not be accepted.
Including such technology as RFID means the federal government, as well as the governments of Canada and Mexico, could know where American citizens are at all times
A national ID card offers us nothing more than a false sense of security, while
moving us ever closer to a police state.
The national ID proposal should die a well-deserved death in the Senate, and it should be denounced as authoritarian and anti-American

The bill even provides for this sensitive information to be shared with Canada and Mexico! Imagine a corrupt Mexican official selling thousands of identify files, including social security numbers to criminals."
Now is the time to demand the Mississippi Legislature refuse to allow the federal machine to come into our state and force such Draconian, Nazi-style intrusions into our lives.
Speak up now or in a few years you'll be sporting the Mark of the Beast.
Call your state representative and senator and tell them you will refuse this national ID/driver's license.
It is unconstitutional, period.William J. Gilmore,
A new driver license is coming for ALL the european countries, according to the EU ministers of transport.There are currently 110 different driver licenses around which is difficult to control and causes fraud. In the chip personal data will be stored, as well as a history of accidents the owner of the license may have caused
Microprocessor ID cards HANIS ( Home Affairs National Identification System )
more than 100-million smart cards will be in active use in South Africa.
The report focuses on what are known as "memory cards" and "microprocessor cards", which are in effect plastic cards containing a small microchip.
Memory cards allow only for the storage of data,
whereas microprocessor cards allow for information to be added, deleted or manipulated.
Both types are also known as chip cards, thanks to the computer chip embedded in the card.
The single biggest smart card project this country will see, however, will be the new
Home Affairs National Identification System, known as Hanis,
which will require the replacement of identity documents with around 30-million smart cards --
one for every eligible South African -- during the same five-year period.
The reason for the explosion in smart card usage is simple: It is more secure than any other identification technology that is economically viable and available, can contain updateable information ranging from personal details to fingerprints to identification photos, and is far less prone to forgery than existing systems.
Contact cards and contactless smart cards dictate what kind of card reader has to be in use, since contact cards must be inserted into a reader, or swiped, while contactless cards only have to be passed near the reader."
Contactless cards have both a microchip and an antenna embedded in the card, which allows for it to be detected at a small distance by the reader.
"It shows how the technology can be used today by the most disadvantaged members of our society in the remotest areas and with a minimum of information at their disposal.
Imagine how much more it can do for South Africans in the future." - I-Net Bridge
Drivers License with "contactless technology" ( RFID )
Information from card readers could also be coupled with global positioning system data and relayed to satellites, helping the government form a comprehensive picture of the comings and goings of its citizens.
Drivers License as National ID Card
According to the legislation ( Republican-House) , within three years of its enactment, no federal agency may accept for any official purpose a driver's license or identification card issued by a state that does not require applicants to provide Social Security number and "facial imaging capture."
Washington would also require all states to share digital data acquired in the process of licensing to other states.
This seems marginally better than the ID provisions McCain-Lieberman bill in the Senate, in that it is not explicitly part of a biometric checkpoint system ( subdermal chip ?) ," wrote the privacy activists of www.Libertythink.com .
"But the highlighted text suggests facial biometrics nonetheless. And the linking of all the databases is troublesome."
Driver's licenses are not the only form of identification changing. Next year, both U.S. passports and foreign visitor passports will be issued with a special computer chip woven into the cover. The chip will include a photograph of the traveler, and face-recognition technology will be used to make sure the passport presenter is the same as the person who applied for the document.
Facial-recognition programs, however, are notoriously inaccurate, with some studies suggesting error rates as high as
50 percent. Simple changes in lighting, or beard growth, can foil it.

What if the card gets stolen, or lost? The card will eventually be replaced with microchips, which could be implanted under the skin. After all, pets, refugees, criminals and soldiers are already electronically "tagged". . http://www.evenmore.co.uk/
A National Identity Card for the US (Sen. John McCain)
The commission further advocated that the biometric border be fully integrated with an internal system of checkpoints, controlling access to the nation's critical infrastructure and transport system, as well as federal buildings.
"That could be a recipe for a system of internal controls that would treat people traveling within the United States in the same way it treats those crossing its borders," cautioned Greg Nojeim, associate director of the ACLU's Washington office.
"All these customer-facing applications, they're emerging," said Joseph Kim, a consultant with the
International Biometric Group, which follows the industry. "We'll be seeing a lot more very, very soon.

UK to get compulsory Nat'l ID cards ( mentions verichip )
That is Blunkett's plan, although a RFID micro-chip in the arm (Verichip (TM) 'Get Chipped (TM)' style) may be cheaper and more applicable by 2013.
It's already happening. When the technology matures, there will be pressure to chip everybody.
Are You ready for the Mark ?
Readers Digest in July 2001 said the original inventor of the microchip, Jack St. Clair Kilby, was turned down by MIT because his math scores were too low. He never had much formal physics training but he received the Nobel Prize in physics.

MARKETING FEAR -- Christina Odone ... Good article !
"VeriChip is cashing in on our desperate yearning for a sense of security. Whether it is fear of terrorist attack or fear of a medical emergency, if the company plays on our anxiety, we are putty in its hands. We will put up with the Orwellian in order to fabricate the Disneyland, where only pastel-coloured certainties apply."

Chip and Pin: Profiling Financial Transactions
neural network systems
The system monitors cardholder behavior, looking for unusual transaction volumes, amounts and locations. It also looks at the types of merchants being used, and even the day of the week, for things that don't fit a pattern based on an individual's credit card history
The system scores each transaction, giving higher scores for those it suspects could be fraudulent. Banks either monitor the results in real time or analyse periodic reports.
We Are What We Buy"; Consumerism as a Religion
Viewed in this way the activity of consuming can be considered as a vital and necessary path to self-discovery," says Professor Campbell, who set out his views in a paper to a conference in Sweden. It is not that we "buy" our identity through what we purchase, but that we discover what we are like by exposing ourselves to a wide range of products and services.

Tracking Immigrants -- I 94 (rfid tags)
In August of this year, the Department of Homeland Security began testing RFID tags at five border crossings under the United States Visitor and Immigrant Status Indicator Technology program, or "US VISIT."
The program applies to people without green cards who enter the US with a visa, whether for work, school, research or tourism, or those from 27 mostly European countries who are traveling under the "Visa Waiver Program," which allows travelers to stay for up to 90 days without a visa. Over the next year, people in these categories will be issued new "I-94" visa cards embedded with an RFID tag at five border crossings including Nogales East and Nogales West in Arizona, Alexandria Bay in New York, and the Pacific Highway and Peace Arch in Washington. Homeland Security Department requires that the I-94 cards be carried at all times.
GPS TimeTrack used by employers etc. for personal info
The GPS TimeTrack service allows businesses to capture their employees start and stop times for shifts, jobs, work orders and breaks, while monitoring their location and speed. Additionally, businesses can use the service to create detailed Web reports including time and job reports, location maps and download timesheet information into financial and payroll systems. http://www.xora.com/documents/Xora_GPS_TT_11.pdf.

Chips under the skin become a part of you--Mrs. Jacobs..Sept 10-2002
Leslie says it was just as if she had a cavity or a filling and wanted to play with it for the first day. "Then, after that, it becomes a part of you."
She says the only time it makes a difference is when the family is close to a scanner.
"It's kind of like you're at the supermarket and they take the scanner out and your name and information comes up," she says.
"That's the reality of it because every day you just do your own thing and you don't really know it's there until you're scanned."
