China Jumps at Real ID

Subject: China Implements ID Card: Vision of American Future.
Nicolas Rockefeller, along with L-1 Identity Solutions, is helping get this program in place for the Chinese government. Mr. Rockefeller does quite a bit of business over in China, and his particular area of interest is population surveillance. L-1 Identity Solutions is the company that will be working the biometric identification technology for the REAL ID. The REAL ID Act of 2005 begins in May 2008.
SHENZHEN, China, Aug. 9 — At least 20,000 police surveillance cameras
are being installed along streets here in southern China and will
soon be guided by sophisticated computer software from an American-
financed company to recognize automatically the faces of police
suspects and detect unusual activity.
Starting this month in a port neighborhood and then spreading across
Shenzhen, a city of 12.4 million people, residency cards fitted with
powerful computer chips programmed by the same company will be issued
to most citizens.
Data on the chip will include not just the citizen's name and address
but also work history, educational background, religion, ethnicity,
police record, medical insurance status and landlord's phone number.
Even personal reproductive history will be included, for enforcement
of China's controversial "one child" policy. Plans are being studied
to add credit histories, subway travel payments and small purchases
charged to the card.
Security experts describe China's plans as the world's largest effort
to meld cutting-edge computer technology with police work to track
the activities of a population and fight crime. But they say the
technology can be used to violate civil rights.
The Chinese government has ordered all large cities to apply
technology to police work and to issue high-tech residency cards to
150 million people who have moved to a city but not yet acquired
Both steps are officially aimed at fighting crime and developing
better controls on an increasingly mobile population, including the
nearly 10 million peasants who move to big cities each year. But they
could also help the Communist Party retain power by maintaining tight
controls (DO YOU THINK!!) on an increasingly prosperous population at a time when
street protests are becoming more common.
