Re: National Security : e-Passport

It is not about my privacy that I am talking about. If it is a digital evidence, the Government can always get along 
with things. Like if there is something happening internally within some bureau, then previously it was at least tough 
to produce fake US passports. If it is e-Passport, I suppose that issues, can be carried away by the bureau's without 
even legally getting permissions for those. Come on, every incident that happens inside US cannot happen without an 
Inside hand. "Every huge kingdoms, that have been well knows, has been destroyed in the past from within". Identity 
theft, faking passports, making illegal passports, etc can also happen within. How does Government plan to answer those 
???

    Yes, there is discussion, and your privacy doesn't seem to be particularly important to the government. You may 
wish to look at Bruce Shneier's take on it (www.schneier.com , he's written several articles).

        US is now bringing in e-passport, I believe as a compulsary thing. Is Security not an issue in this. What if 
there is a vulnerability where everyone's privacy is lost. Is there any discussion about this in the security community?
