SurREAL ID

Bruce Schneier has written an interesting and thought provoking article regarding the REAL ID national ID card that is going to be pushed through congress to be mandated on the states to issue.
For those of you that don’t know me, which is probably most of you avid readers of the Geek, I tend to read a lot about security, privacy and ethical hacking as well as social engineering. Most of it just out of curiousity as to what people are doing, how to avoid it and how to keep yourself from being caught up in a scam. But something of this nature is rather disturbing. What bothers me the most though is the fact that it was attached to another bill that is being pushed through. Definitely worth your time to read through if you’ve got the time.
