Senate Sneaks RFID Drivers License, Internet ID Into Transportation Bill


www.blacklistednew s.com

The Florida Senate Committee on Governmental Oversight and Accountability on Wednesday approved an amendment to include “electronic authentication,” as well as “biometrics” to Florida Driver’s licenses. In addition, the amendment to SB 1150, which passed committee on a 12-0 vote, instructs the Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles to provide a security token that can be electronically authenticated through a personal computer.

Security expert Walk Augustinowicz breaks down the bill.

"There are other states with RFID in their drivers' licenses, Vermont, New York, Michigan, Washington state," he says.He goes on to say these states started using the RFID chips as a way to ensure licenses couldn't be duplicated.

However, he explains how easy it is to steal the card's card information in less than a second if you're in the range of an RFID reader. "It's not something to be taken lightly," he says. "anything once you put a radio chip in it, you need to have physcial protection. There's always a hacker that's going to figure a way around it. "http://www.nbc-2.com/story/14368365/2011/04/01/fl-senate-to-consider-rfid-chips-in-drivers-licenses


Florida, the state where many
of the 9/11 suspects obtained their drivers license - is leading the way with the REAL ID - passed in 2005.

The amendment also states : DHSMV to provide a “security token that can be electronically authenticated through a personal computer.” It is unclear from the amendment whether the driver’s license itself would act as the token.

And remember just last week The Obama Administration announced its push for the assignment of a single, unique authentication key for Internet users, which many are calling the “Internet driver’s license.” Several news sources confirmed that they are drafting a “National Strategy for Trusted Identities in Cyberspace” and said that the Internet ID would likely come in the form of a “smart card.”


Section 53. Section 322.145, Florida Statutes, is created to read:
322.145 Electronic authentication of licenses.—
(1) Any driver’s license issued on or after July 1, 2012, must contain a means of electronic authentication, which conforms to a recognized standard for such authentication, such as public key infrastructure, symmetric key algorithms, security
tokens,mediametrics, or biometrics. Electronic authentication capabilities must not interfere with or change the driver’s license format or topology.

Guess you didn't read the second part of the amendment (emphasis added):


16 (2) The department shall provide, at the applicant’s option
17 and at the time a license is issued, a security token that can
18 be electronically authenticated through a personal computer. The
19 token must also conform to one of the standards provided
20 subsection (1).


That part of it is totally optional.

I live in Florida, it's a nice flat state with mostly warm, sunny and dry year round weather.

Perfect for riding a bicycle and walking.

People simply need to start opting out of this system which is on the verge of bankrupting itself and collapse anyway.

The more people opt out, the fewer revenues they will collect, the quicker that bankruptcy will happen.

Once the collapse occurs, the politicians will no longer have any justification for their bankrupting actions, and new simpler laws can be written by a new simpler government, bound by the very simple but oft ignored and abused constitution.

It is oft abused by attempting to regulate things through the commerce clause by making everything part of the commerce system.

We have seen in these past two hundred years through that, where the present weakness in the present constitution lies.

Congress and State Legislatures need to be restricted from unlimited ability and privelege to regulate commerce.

Restrictions need to be placed on that, and these end runs around the constitution will stop.

Actually Montana is very sparsely populated and in rural areas which most of Montana is you still have horses!

They probably are also some of the best armed and independent thinking people in the nation, so this might not go over too goo.

I spent the better part of a year in Montana during my misbegotten youth playing with a touring band that hailed from Billings.

It's really a neat state and at the time, back in the early 80's, during the day, you could travel the rural roads as fast as your car could carry you, the fine if pulled over was a standard 5 dollars due in cash to the officer writing the citation and no points against your license.

Once the sun set they reverted to the normal codes.

But too their credit they were at leat smart enough to say wow, 30 miles of empty road and you are the only car on it? Go ahead knock yourself out.

My favorite part of Montana though is there is one bar for every four citizens!

The New World Order is bound to go over real well there.
