DHS Privacy Committee report on RFID finalized

Filed under: Privacy and Security,Technology for HLS — by Christian Beckner on December 13, 2006

Back in May of this year, a subcommittee of the DHS Data Privacy and Integrity Advisory Committee released a draft report entitled “The Use of RFID for Human Identification.” That paper prompted a minor controversy within DHS, given the extent to which it questioned the Department’s use of RFID in homeland security programs and applications.

After several months of re-writing, a final version of the paper was approved by the Privacy Committee at its meeting last week. It’s not yet on the DHS website, but the RFID Journal has a copy, which you can download at this link and read about in this article. The article provides a useful discussion of the differences between the first draft and the final draft.
