Very interesting article George, and refreshing to see the surge in biometrics continues to be felt across government deployments as well as sharing biometric template information across multiple countries to combat terrorism and criminal activity.

We have been hearing a lot lately about the issues that biometrics raises with violation of individual privacy rights (eg - the abolition of the National ID Card in the UK and the current petition being signed and submitted to The Council of Europe to prohibit collection of EU citizen's biometric information).

What are your thoughts on the issue of privacy violations and collecting biometric templates?
