These authorities include the police, customs and tax authorities and of course the local registration and passport granting authorities. There are some concerns that the use of RFID chips will pose a security or privacy risk, however. Early versions of the electronic passports, using RFID chips with a protocol called 'basic access control' (BAC), were successfully hacked by university researchers and security experts."
such a move is too early , anyone can hack such stuff and make ids . security measures should be taken first , anw in 2012 they will be back to normal ids when that sun wave hits earth and all technology is shut down
