I worked for an International Security Company. I designed systems for National companies. I guess the product that you should all be aware of is
iris biometrics. It has been used by the military for years and now other government and corporate entities are using it.
This is not your typical iris scanner. (You're probably thinking of the old fashioned retina or iris readers where you look into a device and it
scans your iris. NOPE!!! This is a reader that looks like a motion detector mounted over a doorway. Long story short, the readers capture iris code
data at a distance and in motion while the individual is approaching, even if they are in a group of 20 people wearing contact lenses, sunglasses,
glasses or behind a car windshield.
Of course for this technology to work, your iris will need to be in a data base. No problem. Facebook, Paypal, Ebay, Airports, Banks, Laptops, etc
are all looking to use "iris scanning" as a means of "securely logging into your account".
In addition, your iris code data can be captured from a high resolution photograph.
Ask yourself how secure your iris scan will be. How safe was your credit card info at Target this past Christmas?
And what about the NSA? Will they have access to your scan (or profile picture) through Facebook, Google or any other entity?
Remember, once they get your iris scan, you can never take it back.
I laugh at people worried about getting micro-chipped. Why would they bother micro-chipping you? They still need a reader to read the micro-chip
right? Well, your iris is your "microchip".
I do post pictures of myself on various sites, but I always alter my eyes. I suggest you do the same. I hope this is informative.
