Big Brother Will Use Physical World Hyperlinks For Security
Who needs implantable RFID chips, when your eyeball will do.
When a machine readable identifier (fingerprint, iris, DNA etc) is scanned, identified from an Internet database, and then delivers information...Physical World Connection has take place.
In the following case, irises will act as Physical World Hyperlinks.
Senior British police officials are talking to the FBI about an international database to hunt for major criminals and terrorists.
The US-initiated program, "Server in the Sky", would take cooperation between the police forces way beyond the current faxing of fingerprints across the Atlantic. Allies in the "war against terror" - the US, UK, Australia, Canada and New Zealand - have formed a working group, the International Information Consortium, to plan their strategy.
Biometric measurements, irises or palm prints as well as fingerprints, and other personal information are likely to be exchanged across the network. One section will feature the world's most wanted suspects. The database could hold details of millions of criminals and suspects.
