I did not know a passport will be used "to engage in financial transactions, and to obtain driver's licenses".
Is this news to anyone else?

OK, if Congress is concerned about passports, why are they not concerned about the REAL ID's? They are no less dangerous and no less susceptible to being falsified. But I suppose that we will just let them continue to tell us what is best for us. *sigh*

It almost sounds like the new passports are the REAL ID.
Or did you mean state issued DL's?

of course there vulnerable to hackers. all new technology can be abused, taken apart and changed in to something else. thats why i have hope for the future as surveilance tech is used against us their will be people around to turn it into a advantage for us. hacked rfid chips, hacked, spoofed and faked implant chips. soon everyone should either learn the basic of electronics and "hacking" or become friends with someone who is .
