HOW to VOID your BIOMETRIC PASSPORT - Stop the TSA from TRACKING YouA biometric passport, also known as an e-passport, ePassport or a digital passport, is a combined paper and electronic passport that contains biometric information that can be used to authenticate the identity of travellers. It uses contactless smart card technology, including a microprocessor chip (computer chip) and antenna (for both power to the chip and communication) embedded in the front or back cover, or center page, of the passport. The currently standardized biometrics used for this type of identification system are facial recognition, fingerprint recognition, and iris recognition. These were adopted after assessment of several different kinds of biometrics including retinal proponents in many countries question and protest the lack of information about exactly what the passports' chip will contain, and whether they impact civil liberties. The main problem they point out is that data on the passports can be transferred with wireless RFID technology, which can become a major vulnerability. Although this could allow ID-check computers to obtain a person's information without a physical connection, it may also allow anyone with the necessary equipment to perform the same task. If the personal information and passport numbers on the chip are not encrypted, the information might wind up in the wrong hands. identity theftMost security measures are designed against untrusted citizens (the "provers"), but the scientific security community recently also addressed the threats from untrustworthy verifiers, such as corrupt governmental organizations, or nations using poorly implemented, unsecure electronic systems. New cryptographic solutions such as private biometrics are being proposed to mitigate threats of mass theft of identity. These are under scientific study, but not yet implemented in biometric passports. Microchipped passports - designed to be proof against all identity theft - have been cloned in tests which expose 'a serious safety flaw'.A computer researcher is reported to have cloned the chips on two passports and implanted digital images of Osama bin Laden and a suicide bomber. The faked chips were then accepted as genuine by the passport reader software used at containing biometric data were introduced by Britain in March 2006 to combat terrorism and organised crime. Tens of millions have been issued by 45 countries, with the insisting that all visitors carry them. passport "united states passport" tracked tsa government agency "biometric passport" "rfid chip" military microwave ID identity valid void tracking "opt out" airport travel traveling china usa "american citizen" expat "american expat" " citizen" citizenship freedom free "driving license" "driving licence" microchip 2013 2014 future agenda elite control liberty protest holiday vacation " army" cooking identification clone security latest education "new world order" "made in usa" prepare "american revolution" 829speedy alex jones infowars lindsey williams glenn beck g4t jsnip4 gerald celente rant illuminati end times prepare survival end of america collapse crisis 2nd american revolution russell brand Jeroen van Beek, the security researcher who conducted the tests, said: 'We're not claiming that terrorists are able to do this to all passports today or that they will be able to do it Van Beek, from the University of Amsterdam, has worked out how to read, clone and alter microchips to fool the recognition software used by the International Civil Aviation Organisation and recommended for use at is feared that back-office fraudsters could read and clone the chips on passports surrendered by travellers at hotels or car rental companies. The original holder's name and date of birth would be left intact but new pictures, fingerprints and other biometric data would be added so a criminal could travel using the stolen identity.'Continuing investment in biometric technology and enhanced security measures will help ensure that passport security is maintained now and in the future.'
