RFID and Homeland Permeability

Bert Moore

The opening of "Ready Lanes" to speed border crossings from Canada and Mexico into the U.S. is significant, less because RFID is used in border crossing identity cards than it is for the fact that RFID is finally being used.

I used the "Homeland Permeability" headline in the April 27, 2006 issue. In the 2006 issue, I concluded with the following.

I titled this article "Homeland Permeability" because that is what RFID-enabled travel documents would enable. In generalized scientific terms, a permeable membrane permits the passage of certain molecules while preventing the passage of others.

Now, five years later, RFID is actually being used to facilitate traffic across U.S. borders. While safety and security are clear concerns for everyone, convenience is also high on the average citizen's list of priorities. And that's what RFID is providing.
