Biometrics & Card Technologies: The Privacy Conundrum
The discussion of what constitutes personally identifiable information (PII) is moot when it comes to biometrics -- it's all PII.
The recent announcement that the Security Industry
Association (SIA) has released a Privacy Framework for
RFID and biometrics raises an interesting question when it comes to biometrics:
is there anything about biometric identification that is not personally
identifiable information (PII)?
The answer is, "No". But that's not
really the issue.
