What's wrong with RFID in your passport

Properties of National ID Systems

The new RFID-enabled US passports will provide anyone who comes in contact with them with a new, globally unique number, and it will be impossible to know who is collecting that number, or how they'll use it. That is a poor design for a system.

It never ceases to amaze me that politicians vote for this sort of system. No one should know better how personal information can be abused than politicians.
