Feds Rethinking RFID Passport

Finally the Feds are pulling their heads out of their asses and rethinking the notion of using RFID passports. Back in October the State Department thought it would be a good idea to store each persons Name, Address, Phone, SS#, etc. on an RFID tag stored in that persons passport. This information would not be encrypted and would be able to be read from anyone with an RFID reader within 30 feet of a passport. Bad idea. Now, thankfully, they are rethinking the entire idea.
