ID Cards now; subdermal chip soon -- VIDEOS
" The subject of implantable microchips has vehemently left the realm of paranoia and is now a major concern as governments around the world prepare to roll out national ID cards which many fear could be replaced by mandatory implantable chips in the not too distant future."
India's PayPass Citi Tap and Pay -- NFC contactless payment; ( Ed: 666 friendly )
"They will then be able to securely execute an Over-The-Air download of their Citibank MasterCard credit card on to their mobile phone. Once personalised, their credit card on the phone is ready and the customers can use the phone to make Tap and Pay trasactions at locations displaying Citi Tap and Pay and MasterCrd PayPass acceptance marks, Rajashekaran said.
Citi Tap and Pay transactions are absolutely secure and require a PIN validation. The contactless payment transactions will be automatically charged to a customer's Citibank MasterCard card account. "
India to ID billions
Entrepreneur, Nandan Nilekani has been chosen to lead the ambitious project which will be the second largest citizens' database in a democracy, with China
being the biggest.
'But a system of national ID cards can technically introduce a new route to citizenship.
'This could be used as a security measure by the government which leaves migrant workers, refugees and other stateless people in India in limbo without access to public services, employment and basic welfare.'
Smart Drivers License: The smart drivers license would look like a traditional drivers license, except that the smart drivers license would include an IC chip which would digitize, store and secure demographic and photographic data in electronic form.
The smart drivers license would
(1) enhance positive identification by linking the card to the cardholder with a biometric;
[ Ed: digitized thumbprint; digitized photo for facial-recognition systems ]
(2) reduce and prevent fraud by duplicating the printed information in the secure microchip
[ Ed: IC computer chip, networking many databases; System-on-chip ] ;
(3) make the license renewal process faster, easier, and less expensive by reusing the same card;
[ Ed: no need for reissuance since it has read-write capabilities and can be updated in real time ] and
(4) allow for electronic certification of automated transactions. [ Ed: access permission; or "Access Denied" ]
Additionally, states could choose to use the remaining space on the cards IC chip to expand the role [ Ed: for totalitarian control ] of the drivers license. This could occur through[ Ed: global ] interagency use of the IC chip for other government programs, such as electronic benefits transfer,
[ Ed: access to one's bank account, thus enabling purchase of food etc. Can also emit " Access Denied " ]
library privileges, and hunting or fishing permits.
It could foster public private partnerships in which the state would sell or lease space on the drivers licenses IC chip to banks, businesses, universities and other organizations. These benefits would strengthen the current functions [ Ed: totalitarian power ] of the CDL.
[ Ed: CDL = Commercial Drivers License ]
National Identity Register database
" ... data giant IBM has been awarded the equivalent of $390,000,000 U.S.D. for development and control of the biometric database for the UKBA (United Kingdom Border Agency.) IBM will be in charge of fingerprints and facial images taken for passports and visa applications, the National Biometric Information Service (NBIS) which in turn will feed into the National Identity Register, the database behind the ID cards. Are you safe yet? According to officials within the agency, no one except staff who are actually working with the program will be able to get to any of the information. However, if another agency would like to get information about you, they can ask NBIS, and then they WILL TELL-

RFID Enhanced Driver's License
"So if EDLs [ Enhanced Driver's License] are the new direction for secure licenses in all states, it just reinforces what many have been telling me that DHS
[ Dept. of Homeland Security ]
wants to expand this program and turn it into a wireless national ID with a different name," he said.
"We'll wake up one day and without a vote in Congress DHS will just pass a rule and say something like 'starting next month you will need an EDL to fly on a plane, or to buy a gun, or whatever.'"
Ed: Will the new ID with a new name be a subdermal chip ??
An interview Katherine Albrecht did with Bob Unruh of WorldNet Daily made it to the front page of the Drudge Report today:
The article sounds the alarm on Janet Napolitano's recent statements about dumping the unpopular REAL ID program in favor of the much worse
"Enhanced Driver's License" program. (Can you say... Spychipped! RFID-laced! Remotely trackable! 30-foot read range! National ID card!
NOOOO!!) I don't have to tell you what a bad idea that is.
The WorldNet Daily / Drudge article was based on an interview I did with Michigan State Rep. Paul Opsommer, which I have posted on my website
The federal law mandates that every US citizen and legal resident have a national ID card that in most cases is a driver's license meeting federal standards. It requires it to contain an individual's personal information and makes one mandatory to open a bank account, board an airplane, be able to vote, get a job, enter a federal building, or conduct virtually all essential business requiring identification.
[ Ed: will include all commerce, especially grocery shopping for survival ; a great tool for profiling.
Most to get real ID
WASHINGTON Americans born after Dec. 1, 1964, will have to get more secure driver's licenses in the next six years ( Ed: starting NOW ) under ambitious post-9/11 security rules to be unveiled Friday by federal officials....
To address some of those concerns, the government now plans to phase in a secure ID initiative that Congress passed into law in 2005. Now, DHS plans a key deadline in 2011 -- when federal authorities hope all states will be in compliance -- and then further measures to be enacted three years later....
NATIONAL ID CARD -- REAL ID smart card ; computerized - Driver's License ( DL )
"Harper, of the Cato Institute, noted that this linked database would not be covered by privacy laws governing federal databases. Other privacy advocates said that although the Homeland Security Department had said it would not control the network, federal agencies could still dip into it at will.

"REAL ID " = National ID card ( driver's license ) DMV centers
'renewing a drivers license will require a personal visit to the DMV. Mail-in and online renewal, which had just begun to shorten seemingly unending DMV lines, will no longer be allowed under the Real ID Act. In addition, license renewal will require applicants to provide the DMV with:
1. their current license or other picture ID,
2. their actual social security card (not a copy),
3. utility bills showing address of residence and last but certainly not least,
4. their birth certificate."
Ed : and perhaps a marriage certificate
Birth Certificates can be obtained online
How "Real ID " will affect you
Drivers License = National Identity card = access to viable lifestyle
, if you live or work in the United States, you'll need a federally approved ID card to:
travel on an airplane,
open a bank account,
collect Social Security payments,
or take advantage of nearly any government service.
Practically speaking, your driver's license likely will have to be reissued to meet federal standards
At a minimum: name, birth date, sex, ID number, a digital photograph, address, and a
"common machine-readable technology" [ microprocessor chip, multifunctional; bankcard ]
that Homeland Security will decide on. The card must also sport "physical security features designed to prevent tampering, counterfeiting, or duplication of the document for fraudulent purposes.
Homeland Security is permitted to add additional requirements--such as a fingerprint or retinal scan--on top of those. We won't know for a while what these additional requirements will be."
Ed: Biological verification ( authenication) will be needed when the 666 Mark of the Beast is implanted in the forehead ( iris of eye for verification )
or implanted in the right hand ( fingerprint for verification; or vein print)

INDOOR TRACKING - Battery only as needed ( longer life ) -- ACTIVE Tags ( for people )
" We're pleased to showcase Sovereign Tracking Systems, LLC, ... to track and manage inventory for all kinds of items, including such high-value items such as medical equipment, shipping containers, and even patients
Sovereign is a privately held, NJ-based [ Ed: New Jersey ] cutting-edge technology company specializing in real-time asset management tracking technologies, supported by inexpensive active radio frequency identification tags (RFID). The interest of mPhase and its subsidiary, AlwaysReady Inc., is that all active tags and many other types of sensor devices require a power supply for use. mPhase's Smart Nanobattery can allow for the tag to remain in a quiescent state until needed, providing power on demand.
mPhase's new Smart Nanobattery architecture promises an energy source that can be packaged in various configurations, with shelf life lasting decades, yet still able to be activated almost instantaneously on demand. This has a distinct relevance with active RFID applications. Various battery designs based on this technology may deliver a new and unique component for system design across many fields, including defense, healthcare, industrial and consumer electronics.
Sovereign's CEO William A. Robinson was one of the founding fathers of the "Global Positioning Systems" (GPS) technology
Inspired by the limitation of the GPS technology (it would not track under cover), Mr. Robinson began to formulate a concept for a reverse GPS, in which small "Satellites" (readers) could be placed in an indoor environment [ Ed: also an outdoor environment ] allowing for tracking undercover.
Additionally, the company is working on prototype ultra-sensitive magnetometers that promise orders of magnitude increases in sensitivity as compared with available un-cooled sensors. More information is available at the mPhase Web site at www.mPhaseTech.com

Long-range "vicinity - read" tags for ID cards
PRINCETON JUNCTION, N.J. The U.S. Department of Homeland Security ... have announced programs to develop and issue enhanced state driver's licenses that could be used as acceptable alternative documents for crossing U.S. land and sea borders. According to the Smart Card Alliance, those programs pose serious privacy and security concerns.
Homeland Security has proposed a long-range vicinity-read RFID technology solution.

Sen. Graham ( SC ) wants biometric ID to replace SS card
COLUMBIA --U.S. Sen. Lindsey Graham said Tuesday he will introduce legislation to replace all paper Social Security cards with plastic biometric cards that can't be duplicated, so employers can be certain of the legal status of their workers.
Graham said he understands state lawmakers' opposition to the federal 2005 REAL ID Act. South Carolina is among states that rejected the unfunded federal mandate for national driver's license standards, estimated to cost at least $11 billion.
Social Security card : Biometric only, or a smart card ?
The Social Security card faces its first major upgrade in 70 years under two immigration-reform proposals slated for debate this week that would add
1. biometric information to the card and finally complete its slow metamorphosis into a national ID.
The leading immigration proposal with traction in Congress would force employers to accept only a very limited range of approved documents as proof of work eligibility, including 2. a driver's license that meets new federal Real ID standards,
3. a high-tech temporary work visa or a U.S. passport with an RFID chip.
4. A fourth option is the national tamper-proof biometric Social Security card, [Ed: smart card ? ] which would replace the text-only design that's been issued to Americans almost without change for more than 70 years.
The Strive Act : Biometric Social Security Card
If they succeed, the bill will probably have roughly the same contours as the leading House bill, known as the Strive Act, co-authored by Reps. John Flake (R-Arizona) and Luis Gutierrez (D-Illinois).
The Strive Act would require employers to verify a new employee's credentials -- by telephone or the internet -- against databases maintained by the Social Security Administration and the Department of Homeland Security. If the answer comes back as a "non-confirmation," the new hire would have the opportunity to update any incorrect records.
The Strive Act's verification system is based on the Basic Pilot Program, a currently voluntary program that lets businesses verify new employees' work eligibility over the web. But that program relies on databases prone to inaccuracy, according to Tyler Moran, the employment policy director at the National Immigration Law Center.
Homeland Security evaluating chipped driver's license
DHS has granted an extension until Dec. 31, 2009, for states to become compliant with Real ID requirements
Also, Knocke explained, only licenses compatible with Real ID will allow a person entry into places such as federal buildings and critical infrastructure sites, including electrical plants, nuclear facilities and military installations.
"I cannot imagine there's a state government anywhere or a citizen from a state anywhere in America that wants to be dragged up before a future 9/11 commission," he argued, "and have to explain why they chose against increasing the integrity of their state-issued driver's licenses."
Finally, Knocke acknowledged to WND the Washington State RFID "enhanced" driver's license might qualify for compliance under Real ID as well as under the Western Hemisphere Travel Initiative.
National ID or surrender passport
Guidelines for Real ID
Real ID creates the largest single database about U.S. people that has ever been created," Sparapani said. "This is the people who brought you long lines at the DMV marrying the people at DHS who brought us Katrina. It's a marriage we need to break up."
Citizens of states that don't abide by the guidelines will not be able to enter federal courthouses or use their identity cards to board a commercial flight
"The Real ID Act does not include language that lets DHS prescribe privacy requirements, so there are no privacy regulations related to exchange of personal information between the states, none about skimming of the data on the magnetic stripe, and no limits on use of information by the feds," Cope said
What is Real ID and how it will effect us
SCAN CARD ... tracking the homeless ; No card --- no Food. Period.
( What will they do without food ?? )
Turning Charity into a business ( Does 1 Corinthians 13 have any mention of business? )
Welfare Cards .. making merchandise of people
"It's a matter of showing outcomes," Patey [ of Salvation Army ] said.

Homeless receive "scan card" from Salvation Army , YWCA
"One homeless man likened his numbered ID card to "the mark of the Beast" from the book of Revelation.
Others compared the bar code to a Nazi tattoo and the computer tracking system to something out of George Orwell's "1984".
But most of the homeless people in Fort Worth seem to have grudgingly accepted the high-tech identification card that will soon be required for meals, shelter and other services at the city's four largest agencies.
"Some people choose not to have them because it's like an invasion of privacy," [ Ed: a false-"choice" ] said Jana Webb, as she ate lunch at Union Gospel Mission last week.
"I have one because you can't eat without them."
More than 2,400 homeless people have used the "scan cards" to receive services since the Salvation Army began issuing them last spring, according to Tarrant County Access, which provides technical support for about 65 Tarrant County social service agencies, including the homeless shelters.
The cards are a new tool in a data-tracking system required of agencies that receive federal grants for homeless services,
[ Ed: This is why we warned of faith-based programs long ago ]
said Access executive director Stephen Braun. By more accurately counting the homeless and the services they receive, the cards can help the agencies tailor their programs to help those people get off the streets, he said. [ Ed: It sounds noble, but they are already punitive, since one cannot eat without a "scan card" ]
The Salvation Army began issuing the photo ID cards that use the Access-funded scan system last spring [ 2006 ] . Union Gospel Mission followed suit in December [ 2006 Ed: How sweet; just in time for the cold season ] , Braun said. The YWCA is also using the scan cards for its homeless child-care clients, he said.
Meanwhile, shelter employees have been trying to prepare homeless clients for the universal scan cards, which have been met with confusion and resistance from some clients.

Verichip as National ID
" Created and marketed by the VeriChip Corporation, the VeriChip is the first human-implantable microchip. It can hold all of a person's information, credit card history, medical history, etc. It is logical to conclude that a chip like this could become part of a national id system in the near future"

Window's OPEN ID
Microsoft pledged to work to integrate OpenID with its CardSpace identity management software, which is now available in conjunction with Windows Vista. "The marriage of CardSpace and OpenID 2.0 is actually a giant step forward," Mundie said.
OpenID is an emerging open-source standard that simplifies the task of logging on to many different Web sites
Gates: Use smart cards instead of passwords
Protesting the legalisation of ID cards is good,
however you will be locked out of the system regardless
Ed: It may be a technical win, but in application the protesters lose out in an already existing system.
We already have ID cards now ( driver's licenses) and we are in networking databases even now.
The real issue to protest is the subdermal 666 global economic chip ( the Mark of the Beast ) which will commit one's
soul to hell for all eternity. Databases hardly compare.
A Good Comment on REAL ID -- Bernie Huebner

Two months ago I reported to you that the most likely company to handle the contract would be the American Association of Motor Vehicle Administrators. AAMVA recently hired Brian Zimmer, a former House Judiciary Committee staffer who has been a major proponent of REAL ID and who would have worked closely with Rep. James Sensenbrenner, (R-Wis.) the person responsible for the act. In his new position at AAMVA, Zimmer is responsible for pursuing federal contracts for identity management and managing the companys identity management projects.
National ID Chip http://www.dojgov.net/national_id_chip.htm
National ID -- Devvy Kidd
"Supporters claim it is not a national ID because it 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. They will not be able to fly or to take a train. In essence, in the eyes of the federal government they will cease to exist. It is absurd to call this voluntary." Congressman Ron Paul on HR 418
The national id is the gateway tool to a forced bio chip, the mark of the beast,and no Christian should accept this national id, period. "
Ed: If the ID card morphs into the 666 economic system which endorses the beast, then we are forbidden to take the ID card.
If it remains an ID card outside the 666 economic system, we read Romans 13:1- 4 and make our decision.
How moral or immoral is this State mandate, if the card remains an ID only, without the 666 system ?
Obedience to God takes priority over all other authority, when the commands come into conflict.
The Holy Ghost discerns when we must answer to a Higher Command.
Required National ID
A Privitized National ID card -- lawlessness
" [ Ed: DHS will ] Have a private data aggregator act as the central database. This is the plan advocated by DHS. The plan calls for the outsourcing of all drivers license and ID card checks to a private corporation, who would then charge the states for each check performed. DHS head Michael Chertoff personally ordered this option to be chosen, according to a senior administration source
"this is the outsourcing of our Constitutional rights. It means that all privacy protections on our drivers licence data will be removed once the DMV sends your data to the private corporation
The citizens of every state will not only be at the mercy of a company like ChoicePoint or Acxiom to 'approve' their identity, but will have no privacy protections whatsoever on that data. Your sensitive drivers license data can be bought and sold along with everything else these companies sell, such as your credit information. The federal government can then gain access to this information without having to comply with any laws, such as the Privacy Act.
L-1 for identity management
Enter companies like L - 1, which proposes to combat ID fraud by throwing the latest technologies in fingerprint, face and iris recognition at the problem. "We need face recognition for document authentication, iris authentication for access to secure areas and fingerprinting technology because it is the oldest ID tech and has millions of records," LaPenta said.
Viisage and Identix + 3 more companies merge; now become L-1
L-1 Identity Solutions, Inc. (NYSE: ID) consists of, among other businesses, the historic operations of Viisage Technology, Inc. and Identix Incorporated, which merged on August 29, 2006.
Viisage, Identix, Iridian, SecuriMetrics and Integrated Biometric Technology -
Chertoff defends REAL ID ( National ID )
Its also worth mentioning that many people consider REAL ID to be the Mark of the Beast, without which people wont be able to participate in ordinary commerce, and with which people wont be allowed to enter the Kingdom of Heaven. Without a REAL ID compliant identification card, people wont be allowed to enter airports or federal buildings, receive government services, and quite possibly be barred from doing business with banks and other financial institutions.

UK resists National ID
UK Identity Cards
"government is dividing the nation into suspects and informers."
Under the new law, the pharmacist will not be able to give you that medicine without proper ID.
So, get your card. It's for your own good"
It became clear last week that the government will do anything to get this bill through parliament, including ignoring its own manifesto pledge to make the cards voluntary, a fact that we should remember as each of us entrusts the 49 separate pieces of personal information to a national database........
its sinister data base
Oddly enough, the compulsory provision of personal information to the government database is not the greatest threat to our freedom, though it is in itself a substantial one. The real menace comes when the ID card scheme begins to track everyone's movements and transactions, the details of which will kept on the database for as long as the Home Office desires....
What remains is the ceaseless monitoring of people's lives. That is what the government is forcing on us.
Non-existent ...without dying
One of the most chilling passages in the bill is section 13 which deals with the 'invalidity and surrender' of ID cards, which, in effect, describes the withdrawal of a person's identity by the state. For, without this card, it will be almost impossible to function, to exist as a citizen in the UK. Despite the cost to you, this card will not be your property."
Now's the time to get serious about getting documents ready for REAL ID
This is a cautionary tale. Get your papers in order in 2007, folks, and have them handy from here on in.
The feds have yet to firm up the list of original, official documents they will require of drivers when REAL ID kicks in next year, Druker said. But it's likely to be longer than it is now.
Digimarc ready for boom sales of new Driver's License for REAL ID
We believe Digimarc shares are undervalued when compared to its peers and think investors have underestimated the potential of the Real ID Act juggernaut to transform the company," according a Thursday note from analyst Jeremy Grant.

Dillinger, "If the person doesn't have something that is a REAL ID compliant driver license, then they won't be able to use it for any purposes that require identification at the Federal level."
The REAL ID Law will also link state records with national databases, enabling states to more easily catch duplicate applications submitted by illegal immigrants or anyone else.
Smart Card : One Key to Many Locks

[ Ed: That means that your smart card can be re-programmed while out-in-the-field ( while you are using it ) and the reprogramming will be unnoticable to you. Only the recipient factors ( databases, networking etc. ) will realize the changes, as the back-end software reprograms your micro-computer embedded in your smart card .
