All around the world, biometrics are becoming more and more commonly used. Many countries are incorporating biometrics into their identification cards, law enforcement and other parts of society.
Real ID Act of 2005 The REAL ID Act of 2005 is U.S. federal law that imposes certain security, authentication, and insurance procedures standards for the state driver's licenses and state ID cards, for them to be accepted by the federal government for boarding commercially operated airline flights and entering federal buildings and nuclear power plants
Changing visa limits for temporary workers, nurses, and American citizens. Establishing new national standards for state-issued driver licenses and non- driver identification cards. Funding some reports and pilot projects related to border security.
As of October of 2009: 25 States have either approved the REAL ID Act, or have legislation in effect to not participate in the program.
Members of the Senate Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs introduced the Providing for Additional Security in States' Identification (PASS ID) Act of 2009 on June 15, 2009 Repeal substantive provisions of the REAL ID Act of 2005.
For Application purposes, include documents with: Full name Date of birth Gender Person's driver's license or identification card number Persons address of principal residence Must allow facial digital image capture.
Idaho has serious concerns and reservations about REAL ID and its future here is to be determined HB 606 (2008) directs the Transportation Board and the Transportation Department not to implement any provision of the REAL ID
The Idaho Transportation Department is responsible for identifications in Idaho. Major technological innovations in 1984 made it possible for each county to issue licenses instantly. Computerization and Polaroid camera equipment eliminated the typical six- week or longer wait to receive a permanent license. Until 1984, applicants who purchased driver’s licenses at county sheriffs’ offices throughout the state were given 120-day temporary permits while their photos were developed and the licenses produced at the Idaho Transportation Department headquarters in Boise. Automation also allowed Idaho to provide immediate information to law enforcement agencies nationwide.
In 2001 Idaho joined many other states in implementing a Graduated Driver’s License program designed to increase highway safety by helping young drivers develop greater driving skills before being granted full driving privileges. By 2002, Idaho had approximately 901,000 licensed drivers. Obtaining an Idaho driver’s license means that a driver is certified as having demonstrated a basic knowledge of traffic laws and rules of the road and is physically and mentally capable of controlling a motor vehicle. Over the years, Idaho’s drivers’ licenses have also come to be accepted as proof of identity.
By February 2002, the digital driver’s license system was installed in every driver’s license office across the state. The digital system makes it possible to obtain a duplicate driver’s license without providing supplementary photo documentation. It also allows the incorporation of enhanced security features to help eliminate the production of counterfeit driver’s licenses.
Many countries outside the U.S. have begun using biometric technologies in their governments and other daily operations
Biometrics are prevalent in many countries, including the United States, and will continue to grow worldwide. Look for biometrics to be incorporated with state and country identification systems.
