      Biometrics Fingerprint Technology Still Facing Resistance

    Clearly, the introduction of fingerprints for identification is still a controversial one. The latest backlack comes from British schools.
    "The managing director of one of the firms supplying fingerprint scanners to British schools has vowed to come clean to parents about the arguments against the use of such biometric technology on children."
    While there is resistance to unproven applications of computer vision, awareness ought to be raised. And although the technology has matured to become very reliable, security and privacy remain somewhat of a major concern.

      Biometrics British Biometric Passport Fails

    A bad implementation or a bad concept altogether? You decide.
    "The biometric passport has been 'cracked' again - but it's the same crack as the old crack (which is not exactly a crack). This time it's the new UK passport, and Liberal Home Affairs spokesman Nick Clegg is calling for the urgent recall of all the 3 million that have already been issued."
