Thank you so much for allowing me the opportunity to visit this discussion. I actually fit in this category much more than you can know. Go to affect side tenormin webpage devoted to affect side tenormin. acetaminophen propoxyphene webpage devoted to acetaminophen propoxyphene. and have fun too!

From slashdot today:

"eWEEK is reporting that NIST has published the biometric data specs on the new Federal ID cards for employees and contractors that will be issued in October. From the article: 'Specifically, the guidelines state that two fingerprints must be stored on the card as "minutia templates," mathematical representations of fingerprint images. [...] Guidelines require that all biometric data to be embedded in the CBEFF (Common Biometric Exchange Formats Framework) structure. This ensures that all biometric data will be digitally signed and uniformly encapsulated. This format will apply not only to PIV cards, but also to any other biometric records kept by federal government agencies.'" The published standards [PDF] are also available from the NIST web site."

Clarkson Engineer And 'Spoofing' Expert Looks To Outwit High-Tech Identity Fraud

"Eyeballs, a severed hand or fingers carried in ziplock bags. Back alley eye replacement surgery. These are scenarios used in recent blockbuster movies like Steven Spielberg’s 'Minority Report' and 'Tomorrow Never Dies' to illustrate how unsavory characters in high-tech worlds beat sophisticated security and identification systems..."

"... Schuckers’ biometric research is funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF), the Office of Homeland Security and the Department of Defense. She is currently assessing spoofing vulnerability in fingerprint scanners and designing methods to correct for these as part of a $3.1 million interdisciplinary research project funded through the NSF. The project, “ITR: Biometrics: Performance, Security and Societal Impact, ” investigates the technical, legal and privacy issues raised from broader applications of biometric system technology in airport security, computer access, or immigration. It is a joint initiative among researchers from Clarkson, West Virginia University, Michigan State University, St. Lawrence University, and the University of Pittsburgh...."

Incidentally, if you think the moral of that story is that PINs are no good, you're wrong -- the real issues it exposes are that (a) banks are horribly exposed these days, and (b) any central database that is responsible for the transfer of money is a target for attacks on its authentication mechanism. (Moving to biometrics, in my view, merely creates a central authentication database full of authentication tokens that will attract criminals like a honeypot. And unlike a PIN, your bank can't issue you a new set of fingerprints or iris patterns if your biometrics are compromised.) BeLief

Frank Herbert was the originator of some very original ideas.

Whipping Star had a genuinely alien background and the concept of BuSab is an idea whose time has come...conceptual equivalents turning up in Vinge's Deepness in the Sky to
mention but one.

To come back to 'criminal futures' I'd mention that locks and encryption are simply delaying measures...

Or else we need Frank Herbert's BuSab to slow things down...

There obviously is not a perfect key or a perfect castle so I really don't think any key method is perfect although I understand biometrics on a global scale would be too much as for the people who are looking for the 'silver bullet.'
Hmmmm, about chopping off hands and such; sounds messy, but crime is crime. Only issue I have with that is forcing people to use a certain key method which in turn I think creates crime. It doesn't fit the profile.
Biometrics is pretty good for ease of use (luxary) so you don't have to carry a password or key around. I essentially don't think any ONE key is completley safe. That would be materialism.

This is also reminding me of cyberspace and how people could alter their DNA but also the DNA database in South Korea. Would DNA be managed so that it couldn't happen? It would be a speed issue though of how fast the crime was committed. Like crimes in cyberspace could be committed almost at the speed of light so no matter how much management even still the speed of light can't be breached so there is always a back door. This is also why organics (biospace or meatspace) is still needed and not just cyberspace because of speed variations.
