With many countries exploring embedded RFID, such passport tags should give us pause, for if one thing has become clear in the digital era, it's that determined people can compromise even the most robust security.
Moreover, we are moving into the era of nanotechnology, when digital identifiers can become all but invisible. Here, too, a balance must be struck between the attractions of a technology and its possible dangers.
