TSSI comment on UK biometric ID card technology

TSSI Systems : 24 August, 2007  (Technical Article)
On-card biometric data considerably less easy to forge or fraudulently use than ID cards with photographic ID says TSSI
TSSI has made the following comments concerning the opposing views of the treasury regarding the timetable for ID Technology.

"The main concern with ID cards is forgery. By bypassing the implementation of biometric technology in favour of photographs is making a mockery of the whole ID card system. Photographic identification is always going to be open to forgery and the government has chosen biometrics to prevent this," said Stewart Hefferman, COO of biometric security specialist, TSSI Systems.

"The government needs to tread carefully or the seeds of disaster will be there from the making. By storing the full biometric data as originally intended will make it impossible for even the most sophisticated fraudster to read or substitute whereby any professional fraudster can modify photographs."
