          The 5 Features to Consider in a 2-in-1 Device      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
The 5 Features to Consider in a 2-in-1 Device phil.goldstein_6191 Tue, 07/10/2018 - 10:49

Global shipments of 2-in-1 laptops (also known as convertible notebooks) are expected to grow 11.6 percent through 2021, according to IDC, the only device category looking so healthy.

For small and medium-sized businesses thinking of refreshing their device portfolio with 2-in-1s, their are numerous factors to consider. A major one is the design of the device. 

One lear option is the convertible-hybrid laptop. This is a folding or clamshell design that involves swiveling the keyboard out of the way to use the device in tablet mode. The other main style is the detachable-hybrid tabletThis is a slate tablet that you can connect to a keyboard dock. When attached to the dock, it is indistinguishable from the convertible-hybrid laptop

However, beyond the overall design of the 2-in-1 laptop, there are several features IT decision makers should scrutinize when determining the best fit. 

SIGN UP: Get more news from the BizTech newsletter in your inbox every two weeks!

1. Find an Operating System that Fits Your Computing Needs

The choice of operating systems is a big consideration. “If all your apps are in the cloud, why do you need anything else beyond Chrome? But it can only do so much,”  says Justin Kring, HP Sr. Brand Manager at CDW. “If you need to run Office or some high-end, memory-intensive software, you need something else.

2. Make Sure Your 2-in-1 Won't Weigh You Down

Weight is another important consideration — especially for the business traveler. “Detachables allow you to ditch some of the weight, which is valuable in certain situations,” explains Damien D’Amore, a Dell CSG Solution Specialist at CDW. “But with the clamshell, you’re stuck at two or three pounds for the device. They’re a little bit heavier. And screen size is still an important factor — again, touching on the question of weight.”

3. Get Enough Battery Life to Stay Productive

This is high on the list of features important to users. Improvements to Intel’s Core i-series CPUs along with industry-wide improvements to power and heat management design on devices have extended the battery life of 2-in-1 notebooks ever further. Top devices are now averaging nine to 13 hours of battery life. Once viewed as a hinderance to wider adoption of 2-in-1’s, these devices are now very competitive with standard laptops when it comes to battery life.

4. Touchscreens Help Bring Content to Life

This capability is growing in importance as a standout feature on these devices. If there is one feature that sets the 2-in-1 notebook apart from other devices, the ability to shift between manual keyboard and mouse interaction and touchscreen is it. As consumers have grown more comfortable with touchscreens, manufacturers have been working to design it into more and more devices, especially Microsoft. “Touchscreen is a big consideration, especially with Windows 10,” says Kelly Etter, Intel Brand Manager at CDW. “And several of the Chromebooks are utilizing touch as well.”

“Everything is going touchscreen,” agrees Andre Sinclair, partner specialist at CDW. “This feature is very popular and is now the norm in this space. Some of this popularity is tied to the release of Windows 10. Touch works very well with this OS, especially when compared to the Windows 8 experience, which was not as good.”

5. Look for Layers of Defense in Security Features

This is another big consideration with 2-in-1s. There are many security features being implemented by different manufacturers that focus on securing access to the device: biometrics, smartcard readers and fingerprint scanners. Others are baking in security at the firmware and hardware level, securing the BIOS from tampering. Security features are often tiered by manufacturers, including more add-ons the higher up the product line you go.

With 2-in-1 notebooks being the target area for growth among laptop devices in the coming years, you can expect manufacturers to be focusing their development efforts in this market. And with refresh cycles coming around shortly, this is a market primed for innovation — and good deals for consumers. Knowing a little bit about how to assess these devices, you can now find the right fit for you.

CDW offers 2-in-1 devices from several partners. See which one has the best fit for your needs.

          DNA Collection is Not the Answer to Reuniting Families Split Apart by Trump’s “Zero Tolerance” Program      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

The Trump Administration’s “zero tolerance” program of criminally prosecuting all undocumented adult immigrants who cross the U.S.-Mexico border has had the disastrous result of separating as many as 3,000 children—many no older than toddlers—from their parents and family members. The federal government doesn’t appear to have kept track of where each family member has ended up. Now politicians, agency officials, and private companies argue DNA collection is the way to bring these families back together. DNA is not the answer.

Politicians argue DNA collection is the way to bring these families back together. DNA is not the answer.

Two main DNA-related proposals appear to be on the table. First, in response to requests from U.S. Representative Jackie Speier, two private commercial DNA-collection companies proposed donating DNA sampling kits to verify familial relationships between children and their parents. Second, the federal Department of Health and Human Services has said it is either planning to or has already started collecting DNA from immigrants, also to verify kinship.

Both of these proposals threaten not just the privacy, security, and liberty of undocumented immigrants swept up in Trump’s Zero Tolerance program but also the privacy, security, and liberty of everyone related to them.

Jennifer Falcon, communications director at RAICES, an organization that provides free and low-cost legal services to immigrant children, families, and refugees in Texas succinctly summarized the problem:

These are already vulnerable communities, and this would potentially put their information at risk with the very people detaining them. They’re looking to solve one violation of civil rights with something that could cause another violation of civil rights.

Why is this a problem?

DNA reveals an extraordinary amount of private information about us. Our DNA contains our entire genetic makeup. It can reveal where our ancestors came from, who we are related to, our physical characteristics, and whether we are likely to get various genetically-determined diseases. Researchers have also theorized DNA may predict race, intelligence, criminality, sexual orientation, and even political ideology.

DNA collected from one person can be used to track down and implicate family members, even if those family members have never willingly donated their own DNA to a database. In 2012, researchers used genetic genealogy databases and publicly-available information to identify nearly 50 people from just three original anonymized samples. The police have used familial DNA searching to tie family members to unsolved crimes.

Once the federal government collects a DNA sample—no matter which agency does the collecting—the sample is sent to the FBI for storage, and the extracted profile is incorporated into the FBI’s massive CODIS database, which already contains over 13 million “offender” profiles (“detainees” are classified as “offenders”). It is next to impossible to get DNA expunged from the database, and once it’s in CODIS it is subject to repeated warrantless searches from all levels of state and federal law enforcement. Those searches have implicated people for crimes they didn’t commit.

Unanswered Questions

Both of the proposals to use DNA to verify kinship between separated family members raise many unanswered questions. Here are a few we should be asking:

Who is actually collecting the DNA samples from parents and children?
Is it the federal government? If so, which agency? If it’s a private entity, which entity?

What legal authority do they have to collect DNA samples?
DHS still doesn’t appear to have legal authority to collect DNA samples from anyone younger than 14. Children younger than 14 should not be deemed to have consented to DNA collection. And under these circumstances, parents cannot consent to the collection of DNA from their children because the federal government has admitted it has already lost track of which children are related to which adults.

How are they collecting and processing the DNA?
Are they collecting a sample via a swab of the cheek? Is collection coerced or is it with the consent and assistance of the undocumented person? Once the sample is collected, how is it processed? Is it processed in a certified lab? Is it processed using a Rapid DNA machine? How is chain of custody tracked, and how is the collecting entity ensuring samples aren’t getting mixed up?

What happens to the DNA samples after they are collected, and who has access to them?
Are samples deleted after a match is found? If not, and if they are collected by a private genetics or genetic geneology company like 23 and Me or MyHerritage, do these companies get to hold onto the samples and add them to their databanks? Are there any limits on who can access them and for what purpose? If the federal government collects the samples, where is it storing them and who has access to them?

Will the DNA profiles extracted from the samples end up in FBI’s vast CODIS criminal DNA database?
Currently DHS does not have its own DNA database. Any DNA it collects goes to the FBI, where it may be searched by any criminal agency in the country.

Will the collected DNA be shared with foreign governments?
The U.S. government shares biometric data with its foreign partners. Will it share immigrant DNA? Will this be used to target immigrants if or when they are sent back home?

What if the separated family members aren’t genetically related or don’t represent a parent-child relationship?
How is the U.S. government planning to determine who is a “family member” once agencies have lost track of the families who traveled here together? What if the parent is a step-parent or legal guardian? What if the child is adopted? What if the adult traveling with the child is a more distant relative? Will they still be allowed to be reunited with their children?

Undocumented families shouldn’t have to trade one civil rights violation for another

These proposals to use DNA to reunite immigrant families aren’t new. In 2008, the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) looked at this exact problem. In a document titled DNA Testing to Establish Family Relationships in the Refugee Context, it recognized that DNA testing “can have serious implications for the right to privacy and family unity” and should be used only as a “last resort.” In 2012, we raised alarms about DHS’s proposals at that time to use DNA to verify claimed kinship in the refugee and asylum context. The concerns raised by DNA collection ten years ago have only heightened today.

The Trump administration shouldn’t be allowed to capitalize on the family separation crisis it created to blind us to these concerns. And well-meaning people who want to reunite families should consider other solutions to this crisis. Immigrant families shouldn’t have to trade the civil rights violation of being separated from their family members for the very real threats to privacy and civil liberties posed by DNA collection.


          Grassroots Group Confronts Privacy-Invasive WiFi Kiosks in New York       Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Free WiFi all across New York City? It might sound like a dream to many New Yorkers, until the public learned that it wasn’t “free” at all. LinkNYC, a communications network that is replacing public pay phones with WiFi kiosks across New York City, is paid for by advertising that tracks users, festooned with cameras and microphones, and has questionable processes for allowing the public to influence its data handling policies.

These kiosks also gave birth to ReThink LinkNYC, a grassroots community group that’s uniting New Yorkers from different backgrounds in standing up for their privacy. In a recent interview with EFF, organizers Adsila Amani and Mari Dej described the organization as a “hodgepodge of New Yorkers” who were shocked by the surveillance-fueled WiFi kiosks entering their neighborhoods. More importantly, they saw opportunity. As Dej described, “As we began scratching the surface, [we] saw that this was an opportunity as well to highlight some of the problems that are largely invisible with data brokers and surveillance capitalism.”

ReThink LinkNYC, which has launched an informational website and hosts events across New York, has been pushing city officials for transparency and accountability. They have demanded a halt to construction on the kiosks until adequate privacy safeguards are enacted.

The group has already had some successes. As Dej described it, “We certainly got the attention of LinkNYC, and that itself is a victory – [they] know that there is an organized group of everyday peeps unhappy with the lack of transparency around the LinkNYC 'spy kiosks.’” 

But Amani cautioned that it was too early to know whether early changes in response to the group’s advocacy—including a revised LinkNYC privacy policy, the creation of a Chief Privacy Officer role for the city, and a new city taskforce—will actually advance the privacy concerns of New Yorkers. “We would like to see the end of individualized tracking of location, faces, and all biometric data on the kiosks,” Amani offered, “With LinkNYC having the means to collect this data and still not having figured out the path for community oversight of the hardware and software, it’s saying trust us, we won't hurt you. That's naive, especially in these times.”

ReThink LinkNYC has thrived in part because it actively cultivated partnerships, and not just with the tech community. Dej noted, “Inasmuch as the structure of surveillance affects us all, all of us deserve to be aware, and welcomed into action.  A movement needs to extend beyond the tech community.” 

To other groups around the country that might be interesting in campaigning to defend civil liberties in their own communities, Amani advised organizers to examine the power structures they are opposing and cultivate personal connections: “Civic involvement remains a more or less fringe activity for a majority of people.  So appeal to what human community is—feelings of connection, acceptance, creating a safe world for our children, and a chance to be creative, 'seen', and given a sense that one’s participation is valued. If we'd like our tech future to be cooperative (versus dominated by wealth or authoritarian styles), then that's how we organize.  If we dedicate ourselves to unlearning the hierarchical behavioral model, we can more easily sense our power.”

Dej agreed, adding “We have the power, we just have yet to realize it.” 

ReThink LinkNYC joined the Electronic Frontier Alliance (EFA) over a year ago, and has used the network to help connect with other digital rights activists in New York City, get assistance with event promotion, and discuss strategies. Dej shared that EFA has been useful for connecting with other activists, saying, “It helps us connect to other people and other parts of this issue that you wouldn’t think of right off the bat, like Cryptoparty, who gave us insight into the technology part of all this… It’s also good to see people working and that we’re not the only ones going through this struggle. There are other people fighting different parts of this system as hard as they can.” 

The Electronic Frontier Alliance was launched in March 2016 to help inspire and connect community and campus groups across the United States to defend digital rights. While each group is independent and has its own focus areas, every member group upholds five principles:

  1. Free expression: people should be able to speak their minds to whomever will listen.
  2. Security: technology should be trustworthy and answer to its users.
  3. Privacy: technology should allow private and anonymous speech, and allow users to set their own parameters about what to share with whom.
  4. Creativity: technology should promote progress by allowing people to build on the ideas, creations, and inventions of others.
  5. Access to knowledge: curiosity should be rewarded, not stifled.

Interviews with ReThink LinkNYC were conducted by phone with follow up over email, and responses edited lightly for clarity.


          Two Sides To Every Coin: When "Security Measures" Become Imprisonment      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Authored by Jeremiah Johnson (Nom de plume of a retired Green Beret of the United States Army Special Forces) via SHTFplan.com,

The most recent article I covered was a piece last week on the illegal alien situation and the president’s handling of it. This is a problem that has plagued the U.S. for decades, and as I wrote before, I agree completely with the way the president has been handling it. Let’s put the president “aside” in this article, however, because no matter how well-intentioned he is, there are forces at work in the U.S. that hold more power than he does.

Subtleties are present that are usually either overlooked or intentionally downplayed so as not to “jar” the consciousness of those who see them. Yes, we need increased border security on the Mexican border, and we need to stem the tide (the “tsunami” is more appropriate) flooding this country with illegal aliens.

Just as with cattle, however, the fence around their pasture keeps things out…and simultaneously keeps the cattle in: the fence works in both directions.

A piece just surfaced from The Hill entitled Thousands of Americans Stand to be Denied Passports Due to Unpaid Taxes,” written by John Bowden on 7/6/18.  While this may come as no surprise to most, it parallels other restrictions such as not permitting those with child support in arrears or bankruptcy proceedings to not be able to depart the country. The law the article refers to was made in 2015 requiring the IRS and State Department to deny U.S. citizens a passport if they owe more than $51,000 in tax debt. The article pointed out that approximately 362,000 Americans fall into that category.

It does not stop there. Our rights as enumerated under the U.S. Constitution are being eroded on a daily basis. The Jennings v. Rodriguez is a Supreme Court decision that affects illegal aliens as well as U.S. citizens. The decision upholds the NDAA (National Defense Authorization Act) provisions for indefinite detention both for American citizens and/or illegal aliens. The decision also leaves the president with the right to order such a detention... of anyone, for whatever reason... at his discretion.

Major metropolitan airports such as in Atlanta and Chicago are taking biometric information... requiring it of all airline passengers... to pass “under the yoke” of facial recognition software and stored for (yes, you guessed it) “security reasons.”

The government and their “partners” in the form of multinational corporations are not undertaking these actions for no reason.

The bad (and sadly ironic) part is that we the taxpayers are the source of funding for these unconstitutional measures: our taxes pay for the cages being constructed around us and before our very eyes. The masses are unaware and/or they do not care. A shift is being fostered: a “need” for more security [translation: more surveillance] and more accountability [translation: more control] are forced upon us.

The public is being shaped and manipulated: having lost conscience, its consciousness is now being molded and made to feel as if there is a need for security, safety, and being led. By appealing to the hierarchy of needs, the powers that be are fostering a climate of fear and creating a need for increased government intervention and control in the interests of security.

With 9-11, the opponents were “created” out of the Arab world and a policy of “we’re all in it together and under the gun…besieged America” was pursued with the following objectives:

  1. Re-prime the MIC (Military Industrial Complex) with fresh wars, new “threats” (Iraq, and bin Laden) and taxpayer-funded government contracts to build up the war machine,

  2. “Justification” for military expansion to further force projection and encroach in other spheres of influence,

  3. The “crafting” of a war-footing…continuous, with the “battlefield” redefined under the NDAA and the Patriot Act as being not only worldwide, but also within the United States, and

  4. The beginning of the creation of a complete surveillance state via TIA (Total Information Awareness) as revealed to the American public by Edward Snowden a few years ago.

Now the threat has not been “abandoned,” just changed in form and expanded.

The “foreign threats” of attack have not abated, but their focal points are changed from the Arab enemy to the Russians and Chinese. The largest changes have taken place domestically, that is to say within the continental United States.

The shootings at schools and public places, and the bombings (such as in Austin, TX) have been used to structure more police presence, more surveillance, and an increased “feeling” by citizens of being unsafe. The CCTV cameras keep sprouting up, the technology increases to monitor, record, photograph, eavesdrop, and control the lives and movements of the average citizen.

The branches of government craft laws (Congress) and selectively interpret the laws (Supreme Court) that abrogate our rights while exempting themselves from the provisions they inflict upon us. A president can go either direction, and whichever way is chosen, the tide of movement is not halted. The paradigm shift toward totalitarianism continues either incrementally, in leaps and bounds, or at full force/unrelenting (as in the Obama years).

The walled fortress in the name of security becomes the fully enclosed prison. Only the direction of the top tier of barbed wire…inward or outwardly pointing…reveals the nature. We the taxpayers pay for the cage, a prison that expands by the day. There will no longer be a need to keep everything outside of the pasture. The cattle will be kept in, and the wolves are already inside as well.

          COLONY - Recensione 3x10 "Sea Spray"      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Nella fredda e piovosa Seattle iniziano a incastrarsi le varie dinamiche che guideranno il tutto in un esito altamente potente, come abbiamo appreso nel decimo episodio della terza stagione di Colony. Il titolo, "Sea Spray", vi rimanderà sicuramente indietro con la mente al secondo episodio della stagione, dove avevamo visto Broussard leggerla nei documenti da lui ricomposti a Los Angeles, che ora assume una nuova connotazione anche grazie alla rivelazione fatta da Snyder in "The Big Empty". Diretto da Lin Oeding (Chicago P.D.) e scritto da Mike Ostrowski (Puzzle Man), l'episodio rivede Will, Katie e Broussard insieme per uno scopo, mentre Snyder si prepara a colpire Kynes alle spalle.


-Armarsi: L'episodio si apre in una palestra, dove vediamo uno dei bodyguard di Kynes allenarsi in una palestra, con le note di Disposable Heroes dei Metallica (brano non scelto a caso). Durante la pausa, parla con un altro tizio, che gli dice che ha intenzione di svuotare una certa armeria in città. Il bodyguard sembra interessato alla cosa, ma allo stesso tempo dice al suo amico di aspettare il momento per fare la mossa giusta e che grazie al suo lavoro a contatto con Kynes, sta raccogliendo molte informazioni che possono usare. L'altro afferma che avranno bisogno di armi in ogni caso e così lui promette che indagherà per vedere se ne vale la pena. Alla fine torna nell'ufficio di Kynes e quando lui entra, lo informa che qualcuno vuole colpire l'armeria e che bisogna metterla al sicuro. Kynes sottolinea il fatto che il suo gruppo ha bisogno di fare qualcosa e che presto arriverà il momento che attendeva.


-Bisogno di normalità: Will sta preparando la colazione, cercando di fare del suo meglio per condurre una vita normale. Bram entra in cucina e lui gli chiede se ha fame. Il ragazzo gli chiede cosa stia facendo e Will dice che sta preparando la colazione, lasciando Bram abbastanza perplesso. Will gli spiega che ha commesso un terribile errore nel coinvolgerlo in questa situazione e gli chiede scusa. Lui non capisce perchè suo padre lo ritenga un errore e Will gli dice che capisce quanto sia stato difficile l'ultimo anno e che desidera soltanto che lui abbia una vita normale. Il ragazzo gli dice che lui dovrebbe essere un padre normale, andandosene. Will lo chiama, ma lui non risponde, dicendogli di guardare i fornelli e lasciando suo padre piuttosto deluso.


-Uomo di fiducia: Snyder fa' entrare il tenente Garland nella sua stanza (notare la sua cura nel guardare chi ci fosse dietro la porta) e gli da' il benvenuto a Seattle. Il tenente si lamenta per la pioggia e la noia che prova in questa città e Snyder gli promette che presto dovrà uccidere qualcuno, raccontandogli del suo incontro con Will e Broussard e del suo rapimento. Lui gli chiede perchè sia ancora vivo e a dire di Snyder si è trattata di empatia, affermando che gli ha detto delle bugie finchè gli uomini di Kynes non hanno cominciato a cercarlo e che gli hanno mostrato un oggetto che hanno ottenuto da qualcuno vicino a Kynes, un oggetto di cui lui non ha fatto rapporto, come loro non riferiranno della presenza ribelle in città. I due escono dall'albergo e gli uomini di Kynes fermano Snyder, dicendogli che non può muoversi senza di loro, ma lui dice che ha un suo uomo di fiducia e che, qualora Kynes lo cerchi, può usare il cellulare.


-Confrontarsi: Broussard chiede informazioni su come raggiungere Blake Island e l'uomo addetto al porto gli dice che il problema sono i droni subacquei, le cui armi possono tranciare una persona di netto, proponendo come alternativa il traghetto. Katie vede che la cucina è in disordine e rimprovera amorevolmente Will, il quale è seduto e deluso. Lei gli dice che non lo aveva mai visto come la notte prima, invitandolo a parlarne con lei e lui si confida:


"W: Ever since the camp, I've just tried to keep my feet moving. I guess I knew that if I stopped it would all catch up to me. 

 

K: And last night you finally stopped? 

 

W: What happened it'll always be a part of us. But I can't let it be everything. It's not fair to you. It's not fair to Bram or Gracie." 

Poi le dice che la sua unica ossessione era capire se Seattle fosse veramente sicura e alla fine pensava che lei avesse ragione ad essere felice del suo lavoro, ma lei gli dice che ha appena scoperto che i rifugiati stanno sparendo e che forse sono diretti alla Fabbrica. Lui le dice che sono entrati così rapidamente a Seattle perchè hanno sempre saputo che in realtà sono i Bowman, una cosa che si ricollega alla lista di cui lui fa' parte, e il motivo per cui i droni lo risparmiano sempre è che i RAP hanno un piano per quelli come lui. Katie gli chiede dove ha saputo queste cose e lui svela che è stato Snyder a dirglielo, dicendole che lui e Broussard lo hanno rapito. A lei non fa piacere che Broussard non l'abbia coinvolta, ma Will spiega che non l'ha fatto perchè pensava che era ciò che voleva. Katie dice che non possono farsi una vita se il posto non è sicuro. Will non garantisce che Snyder abbia detto la verità, mentre lei potrebbe trovare una conferma, visto che le decisioni su chi entra vengono prese dall'ufficio in cui lavora. Alla fine dice che deve andare e che è stata contenta di aver parlato.


-In debito: Amy guarda fuori dalla finestra per vedere se arriva qualcuno e Broussard le dice che se stavano arrivando per loro, sarebbe già accaduto. Lei gli chiede come possono arrivare all'isola e lui le dice che ci sta lavorando, ma hanno bisogno di aiuto. Amy capisce che Broussard si riferisce a Will e gli ricorda che se lui è dentro, lei è fuori. Broussard le dice che la questione con Snyder è conclusa, ma lei sostiene che la sua condizione non è una cosa che passa in un giorno. Broussard ne è consapevole, ma hanno bisogno della sua esperienza. Amy gli chiede di addestrarla e lui dice che ci vorrebbe troppo tempo e che persone come Will, che in azione sanno gestirsi, sono davvero poche. Lei dice che lo ha quasi fatto uccidere due volte, ma Broussard da una risposta semplice e potente:

"I owe him."

Amy non ne è convinta e che dato che lui ha sempre sostenuto di mantenere la disciplina e di tenere le emozioni fuori dal lavoro, lo invita a tenere fuori anche Will. Lui dice che non può farlo e allora lei dice che ha finito, chiedendogli di andarsene prima che lei torni dal suo turno di lavoro.


-Interesse particolare: Snyder e Garland si incontrano con un membro della pattuglia in un bar e iniziano a chiedergli da quanto si trova a Seattle. L'uomo dice che ci è venuto da quando è stata ripopolata e che il suo lavoro di addestrare reclute è estremamente noioso. Snyder pensa che il suo talento sia sprecato, ma lui dice che non ci sono crimini veri in città. I due intervengono, chiedendogli chi indagherebbe in caso di furto di un oggetto appartenente ai RAP e lui dice di non saperlo, dato che la pattuglia non si occupa di cose del genere, facendo riferimento a un gruppo di persone con dei SUV e con una certa esperienza, di cui non si dovrebbe sapere l'esistenza. Snyder gli racconta del duplice omicidio e l'uomo dice che gli era stato detto che era solo un incidente e che questi misteriosi agenti sono intenti a cercare qualcosa di specifico, che interessa particolarmente a Kynes.


-Rimediare ai propri errori: Will e Broussard osservano l'isola, discutendo sul piano per arrivarci. Broussard spiega che il battello va sul posto due volte al giorno e che vi sono due guardie e uno scanner biometrico. Will pensa che un medico potrebbe farsi strada lì dentro, pensando ad Amy. Broussard gli dice che lei è fuori per una differenza di opinioni riguardanti il suo coinvolgimento. Will non capisce che cosa possa averla provocata e pensa che lei non sia ancora in grado di affrontare certe situazioni, ma Broussard gli spiega che ha commesso molti errori finora e Will non capisce perchè è ancora qui con lui. Alla fine Broussard gli fa capire che lei non è ancora pronta, mentre lui lo è.


-Vecchi istinti: Katie va da Michelle per chiederle il file su suo marito, dicendole che è in pericolo. Michelle ne è dispiaciuta e dice di poterlo ottenere, ma piuttosto preferisce riferire delle sue violazioni. Katie pensa che sia un errore, ma lei pensa che il suo errore sia stata coinvolgerla e vuole rimediare e naturalmente Katie le ricorda che una volta fatto potrà mandare altre persone a morire. Michelle si irrita e la caccia via, ma Katie la avverte che se farà rapporto, ne risponderà anche lei di quanto fatto, visto che l'ha esposta mandandola personalmente nell'appartamento dei Winslow. Michelle dice che sta mentendo e Katie le dice che nessun altro poteva dirle dove andare all'infuori di lei e Michelle la definisce un'egoista che pensa solo alla sua famiglia. Katie le svela che non si è mai creduta tale ed è per questo che lavora lì, ma ora le cose sono cambiate e vuole soltanto assicurarsi che la sua famiglia sia al sicuro in questa colonia e minaccia di venderla se non l'aiuterà.


-Violare le regole: Snyder e Garland indagano sul luogo dove il corriere è stato ucciso e derubato e notano come l'utopia senza crimine di Seattle sia una cosa del tutto falsa. Così scoprono che il SUV proveniva dalla stessa struttura dove vi erano le coltivazioni, come anche la misteriosa pellicola mostrata da Broussard, che porta a Snyder a scherzare sul fatto che il destino li fa sempre ritrovare. Garland propone di trovare Bowman e recuperare la pellicola, cosicchè possono dare la colpa a Kynes, svelando a Snyder che Will si trova nella colonia sotto falso nome, col resto della sua famiglia. Snyder è sorpreso, visto che Will è un outlier, destinato a Blake Island, mentre Kynes lo ha lasciato entrare pur sapendo chi fosse in realtà, un errore che potrebbe costargli caro e che porta Snyder a sospettare che Will non sia l'unico ad aver avuto il medesimo trattamento.


-Una vita da dimenticare: Michelle fornisce a Katie il file su Will, il quale è contrassegnato con la sigla OCS, vale a dire outlier, un genere di persona che viene introdotto nella colonia appena identificato, a cui appartengono molte altre persone. Katie le chiede una lista di nomi e Michelle le fa promettere che sarà l'ultimo favore che le farà. In seguito Katie va a trovare Broussard, dicendogli che la sua nuova dimora è molto meglio delle fogne di Los Angeles. Lui le dice che si trasferisce e che capisce che lei è arrabbiata. Katie gli chiede il perchè e lui le risponde che avrebbe dovuto dirle che era in città e lei dice che pensava fossero amici. Broussard risponde con parole che fanno breccia in lei:

"We are friends. But maybe I'm a reminder of a life that you wanted to forget."

Lei gli chiede come vanno le cose e lui le dice che va tutto bene, chiedendole che cosa sta succedendo. Katie gli dice che lavora al centro per i rifugiati e che grazie all'accesso ai server ha scoperto che sanno chi sono davvero. Broussard chiede li abbiano fatti entrare e lei dice che ci sono molte persone come Will, chiamate outliers, e gli mostra la prima pagina della lista, composta da persone che hanno avuto esperienza militare, una cosa che sembra interessare molto Broussard.


-Per conto proprio: Snyder va ad affrontare Kynes nel suo ufficio, parlandogli di un certo incidente avvenuto nella sua colonia, trattasi di un duplice omicidio con furto. Kynes non sembra sorpreso al riguardo, affermando che gli omicidi sono piuttosto rari e Snyder gli chiede perchè non ha fatto rapporto. Lui dice che era un'anomalia e che non è tenuto a riferire tutto all'IGA e spiega che è stato rubato un campione di una membrana destinata al contenimento, di cui lui capisce ben poco. Snyder chiede di poter aiutare nel recupero, ma Kynes gli ricorda che i problemi interni li risolve con un personale qualificato e scelto da lui, con cui Snyder vorrebbe parlare, per poi far presente il problema all'IGA e Kynes gli suggerisce di parlare con i suoi bodyguard.


-Reclutamento: Will e Katie entrano in un negozio, dove incontrano il ragazzo visto in palestra nel prologo. Katie inizia a parlarci, mentre Will da' un occhiata in giro, per poi avvicinarsi a lui. Il ragazzo spaventato, fugge dal retro, ma Broussard lo sorprende e ingaggia un combattimento intenso con lui. Will lo placca e lo stende a terra, dicendogli di calmarsi e che sono amici. Broussard spera che siano tutti come lui e il ragazzo, di nome O'Neill (qualcuno ha detto Stargate?), chiede come facciano a sapere di lui. Katie dice che hanno un contatto al centro rifugiati, dove hanno saputo tutto nell'esatto momento in cui è entrato. Will e Broussard gli dicono che hanno servito sotto le armi e lui dice che era della Marina. Loro si presentano come il gruppo ribelle di Los Angeles e che hanno bisogno di nuovi elementi e Katie gli mostra la lista dove si trovano sia Will che lui, chiedendo se ne conosce qualcun'altro. O'Neill dice di no che chiede perchè mai non vengono presi di mira e Will gli spiega che i RAP (o i Mork come direbbe O'Neill) li classificano come outliers, a quanto pare come prima linea difensiva contro il loro nemico. Broussard gli offre una condivisione di informazioni e O'Neill prende la lista, dicendo che se per loro va bene, si faranno vivi.


-Una prova: Snyder si incontra con i due bodyguard di Kynes, che pensano che la vicenda dell'omicidio e del furto sia colpa di qualche psicopatico. Snyder pensava che persone di quel genere non entrassero nella colonia e chiede loro che lavoro fanno. Loro rispondono che lavorano per Kynes, reclutati dall'esterno per mansioni di sicurezza e Snyder suggerisce loro di optare per un'occupazione più remunerativa, come nell'IGA, ma loro vogliono restare a Seattle. A pranzo terminato, Garland interviene sulla scena per prendere un bicchiere da far analizzare.


-Tornare indietro: Will va a trovare Amy durante la pausa e le dice che è venuto per scusarsi. Le spiega che ha risparmiato Snyder perchè non voleva farlo davanti a Bram e Amy dice di non capire completamente perchè Broussard lavorerebbe con uno come lui. Will le racconta di quando Broussard aveva il suo team a Los Angeles, composto da gente inesperta, che è stato completamente annientato e che in questo senso è più facile lavorare con gente esperta, che sa quello che sta facendo e per cui non ci si dovrebbe sentire in colpa. Lui non la biasima per essere irritata con lui, dicendole che ha ragione sul fatto che lui non sta bene, raccontandole di Charlie. Lei gli chiede se incolpa Snyder di questo e lui dice che ormai non conta più, ma lei non è d'accordo, dicendo che ha bisogno di aiuto e che conosce delle persone che possono assisterlo. Giustamente Will risponde che la sua situazione se la gestisce da se' e le chiede di tornare con loro, perchè Broussard ha bisogno di lei. Lei pensa che a Broussard non serve nessuno, ma Will è di un'altro parere:

"You're what my wife was for him. Someone to remind him why he does it. [...] Don't walk away from something good because of me."



-Tutto comincia a quadrare: Bram torna a casa e chiede a Grace se i loro genitori hanno chiamato e lei dice di no, così la porta a cena a casa della sua fidanzata. Garland comunica a Snyder i risultati delle impronte e svela che i due bodyguard sono ex-militari, vale a dire outliers. Snyder è felice che il suo sospetto fosse fondato e ritiene che ve ne siano molti di più a piede libero, pensando che Kynes lo abbia fatto in modo intelligente, ma Garland pensa che invece questa è una base perfetta per un'insurrezione. Così Snyder propone di fare la loro mossa e vedere come Kynes risponde. Katie viene raggiunta da Will e i due si fanno una passeggiata notturna sotto la pioggia. Will le dice che ci sono guardie nel porto e Katie propone di usare Bram per guardare la zona, ma lui pensa che sia meglio non coinvolgerlo. Katie gli chiede come sta e lui dice che sta bene, ma a un tratto un uomo lo urta per poi fuggire via. Alla fine Will si ritrova un biglietto con un orario e un luogo per un incontro, chiudendo l'episodio.

VERDETTO

I tasselli iniziano ad incastrarsi in questo episodio che possiamo ritenere sicuramente un prologo perfetto per una triade finale che promette di essere molto intensa. Finalmente Will e Katie ricominciano a parlare e a lavorare per uno scopo comune, cioè la sicurezza della loro famiglia e assieme a loro si unisce Broussard, proprio come i vecchi tempi a Los Angeles, una cosa che ci fa davvero piacere. Insieme decidono di ampliare le loro fila, richiedendo l'aiuto degli outliers, il cui numero è decisamente alto, perfetto per costituire un esercito, sperando che anche Amy rimanga convinta dalle parole di Will e che torni sui suoi passi (anche se continua a non raccontarmela giusta...). Intanto Snyder inizia ad assestare il colpo definitivo per smascherare Kynes e la presenza di outliers a piede libero è decisamente un pretesto perfetto per farlo cadere dal trono, ma il capo di Seattle sembra un uomo abbastanza intelligente, aprendo a una dinamica piuttosto intensa, che sicuramente verrà sviluppata nei prossimi episodi. Mi voglio soffermare su Bram, perchè ancora una volta risulta essere l'anello debole di questa stagione, e in generale della serie. Sin dalla seconda stagione la sua impulsività non ha beneficiato alla storia in alcun modo e nemmeno la sua attuale delusione per come suo padre ha agito  nei confronti di Snyder e per come viene visto all'interno della famiglia, ennesimo esempio di come il concetto di sopravvivenza e sicurezza non entri in testa agli adolescenti, ma penso che presto ci sbatterà la testa e si spera che gli venga un bel livido. Insomma, in un episodio tipico di Colony, con le vicende che si giustappongono al livello giusto, le cose iniziano ad avere un senso e non possiamo che aspettarci momenti intensi nei prossimi tre episodi.

Vi ricordo che se avete una buona conoscenza della lingua inglese e vi piace ascoltare i podcast, è disponibile il podcast ufficiale di Colony, creato da SyFy Wire, dove ogni settimana, al termine di ogni episodio, il cast e i produttori spiegano gli eventi narrati e danno indizi sulle puntate successive.

          Thoughts on "Security Through Obscurity"      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Today I felt like sharing my opinion on the somewhat-contentious issue of "security through obscurity", or the practice of hiding application or system inner workings to reduce the viability of security threats. Examples include:

  • Having your user table in your SQL backend called "ContosoUser" instead of just "User", making SQL injection attacks more difficult to accomplish

  • Using port 55555 for SSH access on your servers, instead of the standard port 22, to dissuade brute force attackers

  • Obfuscating frontend code to make potential attackers have to figure out how the page works before doing anything to it

This practice has been subject to many strong opinions in the security field. I've personally heard from some in the field that it's a crutch for bad security practices, and from others that it's a very important tool. Let's talk about possible merits, and possible pitfalls as well.

The Vault Analogy

When considering different methods of security like this, I like to envision a vault, perhaps at a bank or what have you, with all your goodies inside. Your goal, of course, is to make sure no one successfully enters that vault.

Suppose your vault is kept in the back of your bank, and you happen to have the most top-of-the-line sci-fi cloaking system, that makes your vault blend in perfectly with the wall.

It's an analogy - Work with me here.

But the actual mechanism of opening the vault is incredibly simple: You simply press an inconspicuous tile on the wall, and the vault opens right up. No combination, no keys, no biometrics or other fancy stuff. You just have to know that you have to press the tile to get in.

Of course, this situation represents complete reliance on security through obscurity. If you have insecure infrastructure or software, and just rely on knowing what you know, that security through obscurity really isn't security at all. In the analogy's case, someone could potentially spy in and see an employee opening the vault. Or perhaps they manage to get in undetected, and simply start looking around and pressing on the wall, looking for hidden switches. This could be compared to things like port mapping, trying to just guess random ports and see if any of them gives positive SSH or RDP responses.

The opposite end of the spectrum is if you had a perfectly secured safe, with five keys required along with a combination, with super-reinforced adamantium protecting the goodies inside. That thing is NOT getting broken into. But instead of keeping it in a secure location, you put it in your lobby, letting anyone try to get in if they want!

This, likewise, represents neglecting security through obscurity, and fully trusting your technology and techniques to not fail you. This is certainly safer than the other end of the spectrum, but is it really a perfect situation? People trusted WEP encryption in the past, and we know how that turned out. People figure out ways around good technology. That's just how the world works. The goal, of course, is to lower the possibility of breaches as much as you can.

The Big Picture

I'd say that, in general, my opinion on the viability of security through obscurity looks a bit like this (In an abstract scale and brilliant MSPaint skills):

#source%3Dgooglier%2Ecom#https%3A%2F%2Fgooglier%2Ecom%2Fpage%2F%2F10000

Obviously, with no thought given to security, you've established the lowest end of the scale. If you decide to rely fully on obscurity, you are substantially better off than nothing, but you could still do a lot better. If you fully rely on your technology and technique, you're safer than if you relied fully on obscurity, but if you layer obscurity on top of that, then you're slightly more secure than if you didn't.

I'd love to hear your thoughts on this issue, and your own opinions on the debate regarding security through obscurity. Happy coding!

Case of RFID : Booxen 1. Company Info 2. Distribution Process 3. RFID application Ⅲ. Expected effects & Problems Ⅳ. Direction of RFID Ⅴ. Reference Ⅰ. RFID 1. Definition We discuss RFID and case. The order of the report are as follows. First we explain The definition of rfid first and then actually being used will be explained in buksen. Expectations about the effects and problems discussed later we will talk about future directions. What is RFID? the term RFID is short for Radio frequency identification. Radio frequency identification (RFID) is a generic term that is used to describe a system that transmits the identity of an object or person wirelessly using radio waves. It s grouped under the broad category of automatic identification technologies. RFID is in use all around us. If you have ever chipped your pet with an ID tag used EZPass through a toll booth or paid for gas using SpeedPass you ve used RFID. In addition RFID is increasingly used with biometric technologies for security. 2. Performance property A basic RFID system consists of three components: An antenna or coil A transceiver (with decoder) A transponder (RF tag) electronically programmed with unique information. The antenna emits radio signals to activate the tag and to read and write data to it. The reader emits radio waves in ranges of anywhere from one inch to 100 feet or more depending upon its power output and the radio frequency used. When an RFID tag passes through the electromagnetic zone it detects the reader s activation signal. The reader decodes the data encoded in the tag s integrated circuit (silicon chip) and the data is passed to the host computer for processing. The purpose of an RFID system is to enable data to be transmitted by a portable device called a tag which is read by an RFID reader and processed according to the needs of a particular application. And To retrieve the data stored on an RFID tag you need a reader. A typical reader is a device that has one or more antennas that emit radio waves and receive signals back from the tag. The reader then passes the information in digital form to a computer system. RFID tags and barcodes both carry information about products. However there are important differences between these two technologies: Barcode readers require a direct line of sight to the printed barcode; RFID readers do not require a direct line of sight to either active RFID tags or passive RFID tags. RFID tags can be read at much greater distances. an RFID reader can pull information from a tag at distances up to 300 feet. The range to read a barcode is much less typically no more than fifteen feet. RFID readers can read RFID tags much faster. read rates of forty or more tags per second are possible. On the other hand reading barcodes is much more time-consuming due to the fact that a direct line of sight is required. If the items are not properly oriented to the reader it may take seconds to read an individual tag. Barcode readers usually take a half-second or more to successfully complete a read. Line of sight requirements also limit the ruggedness of barcodes as well as the reusability of barcodes. Since line of sight is required for barcodes the printed barcode must be exposed on the outside of the product where it is subject to greater wear. RFID tags are typically more rugged since the electronic components are better protected in a plastic cover. RFID tags can also be implanted within the product itself guaranteeing greater ruggedness and reusability. Also Barcodes have no read capability. That is you cannot add to the information written on a printed barcode. However RFID tags can be read devices. The RFID reader can communicate with the tag and alter as much of the information as the tag design will allow. RFID tags are typically more expensive than barcodes nevertheless the rfid is loved by many companies today. RFID tags and barcodes both carry information about products. However there are important differences between these two technologies: Barcode readers require a direct line of sight to the printed barcode; RFID readers do not require a direct line of sight to either active RFID tags or passive RFID tags.

On the other hand reading barcodes is much more time-consuming due to the fact that a direct line of sight is required. If the items are not properly oriented to the reader it may take seconds to read an individual tag. Barcode readers usually take a half-second or more to successfully complete a read.

          Коллекторам предоставят доступ к биометрическим данным россиян      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

В следующем году коллекторы получат доступ к Единой биометрической системе (ЕБС) и смогут идентифицировать должников по голосу. Об этом "Известиям" рассказал близкий к ЦБ источник. Информацию подтвердили два знакомых с ситуацией банкира. По словам экспертов, новация нужна прежде всего для упрощения процесса идентификации должника, снижения психологического дискомфорта при коммуникациях и исключения ошибочных взысканий у добросовестных граждан.

Единая биометрическая система заработала 1 июля 2018 года. Тогда же банки начали сбор биометрических параметров (изображений лица и голосовых слепков) в своих отделениях. Коллекторам предоставят доступ к ЕБС в следующем году для проверки должников, рассказал "Известиям" близкий к ЦБ источник. Информацию подтвердили два представителя банков, знакомых с ситуацией.

Сами коллекторы не будут собирать биометрические параметры. Кредитные организации, продавая долги коллекторам, станут передавать и биометрические данные для сверки при взыскании, уточнил источник. При звонке коллектора голосовой слепок гражданина будет проходить проверку по ЕБС. В Федеральной службе судебных приставов и Центробанке не ответили на запросы "Известий" о получении коллекторами доступа к биометрии россиян.

Гендиректор коллекторского агентства EOS Антон Дмитраков поддержал новацию.

- Доступ к биометрическим данным для профвзыскателей - абсолютно логичный виток в развитии финансового сектора, - отметил он. - В настоящее время процесс идентификации должника занимает слишком много времени, заемщику приходится отвечать на многочисленные вопросы. И эту процедуру приходится проходить не только когда коллекторы звонят неплательщикам, но и когда заемщики звонят в агентства, чтобы уточнить условия погашения долга.

Это вызывает некий психологический дискомфорт, а биометрия убирает эту проблему: клиенты будут идентифицироваться по голосу за несколько секунд, считает эксперт.

- Сократится процент ошибок со стороны коллекторов при осуществлении контакта с должниками по телефону, это может снизить уровень дискомфорта для новых владельцев номеров, ранее принадлежавших должникам, что действительно случается очень часто, - отметил управляющий партнер компании Veta Илья Жарский.

Начальник управления стратегий взыскания Бинбанка Станислав Витвицкий отметил, что благодаря новации стоит ждать прекращения звонков взыскателей добросовестным гражданам, по ошибке попавшим в коллекторские базы, и повышения лояльности к институту взыскания.

Кроме того, за счет того что в базах постепенно останутся лишь номера заемщиков, действительно вышедших на просрочку, вырастет результативность обзвонов. Коллекторы также получат возможность идентифицировать должников, представляющихся третьими лицами и избегающих контакта со взыскателем, указал Станислав Витвицкий.

Новация позитивно скажется и на операционной деятельности коллекторской отрасли за счет оптимизации телефонии и сокращения времени телефонных переговоров, указал Антон Дмитраков.

ATMs Use Biometrics to Combat Fraud

Back to the future at your local ATM



•••

BY ERIN ONEIL
Updated February 20, 2018

Iris-scanners and biometric fingertip readers sound like something out of a spy-thriller, but these devices have already been adopted by financial institutions in international markets. More than 15 million citizens use the technology in Japan alone. Banks in Mexico, South America, Africa, and the Middle East are also moving toward the new technology due to its popularity with rural consumers who aren’t accustomed to carrying bank cards (but apparently don't mind having a machine scan their bodies).

In the current market, Western banks and financial institutions are already set to integrate biometric technology with mass market banking.

Banks Adopt Biometric Technology to Combat Fraud

Consumer liability for fraudulent charges and the cost of implementing biometric technology remain the top reasons why U.S. banks haven't yet adopted the ATM biometrics. In Japan, legislation requiring banks to pay for fraudulent charges led to more than 80,000 biometric ATMs being installed since 2006. In the United States, consumer reluctance and privacy concerns have been cited among the main drawbacks, but a recent survey shows consumers in all age groups overwhelmingly vote for biometric scanning as the preferred authentication method for ATM withdrawals.

A Way to Combat Identity Theft

According to industry numbers from Javelin Strategy & Research, one-tenth of fraud cases in 2009 involved unauthorized ATM withdrawals. ATM skimming devices that capture card data and PINs are not the only security threat; at the annual Black Hat information security conference, noted hacker and security specialist Barnaby Jack hacked into the ATM’s rootkit, gathered card data, and emptied the ATM’s cash reserve. Fortunately, the security guru also revealed safeguards that could easily be implemented to prevent the same type of attack.

Traditionally, access to a checking account has been with a debit/ATM card and PIN. But with new every data breach (as well as increasingly hard-to-detect skimmers), thieves have more ways to steal money. Cards with smart chips should slow that trend, but tech-savvy thieves are not going to give up easily.

Even with high-tech cards, there's still a risk of somebody besides the authorized account holder using a card; it might happen because you share your card (and PIN) with a "trustworthy" friend, or because a card is lost or stolen and the PIN is easy to find. Becuase PINs are hard to remember, they are often kept with cards, which of course defeats the purpose entirely.

With biometric technology, banks can be sure that only the authorized account holder can make withdrawals. And consumers might enjoy knowing that there's no need to remember a code - your body has everything needed to complete the transaction. In fact, some banks are even looking at card-free transactions (or at least using a chip in your phone instead of a plastic card).

ATMs of the Future

Today’s biometric scanners go far beyond basic fingerprint recognition. According to security experts, fingerprints can easily be lifted and replicated. In Poland and Japan, consumers are already using Hitachi's infrared scanners that capture the unique pattern of capillaries in the finger and hand. The most secure biometric technology uses a device designed to perform an iris scan based on more than 2,000 unique measurement points. According to developers, people and pets all over the world will be connected to a system that uses iris scan identification within the next decade.

But we don't need to wait that long. Finger scanners already authenticate customers, sometimes by reading the vein patterns in a finger instead of an old-fashioned fingerprint. If you've recently done business with a teller or accessed a safe deposit box, there's a good chance you've left some kind of biometric record with the bank.

Biometric Challenges

If biometric security is so great, why don't we have it everywhere? Again, some consumers are uncomfortable with having their bodies scanned, and having that information stored with numerous financial services companies.

In addition, the technology needs to function properly - especially when it comes to ATMs. An ATM is a self-service machine, and it'll never get used if it's cumbersome to get authenticated. Consumers might not understand how to interact with the machines (or they might not want to put their eyes within a few inches of the machine), and machines need to be almost 100% reliable. In the past, ATMs with fingerprint readers have had problems with "well-worn" fingers, and they don't work when they're dirty Vein and iris scanners are more reliable, but it is costly to outfit machines with new technology.

          Curriculum Learning of Visual Attribute Clusters for Multi-Task Classification. (arXiv:1709.06664v3 [cs.CV] UPDATED)      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Authors: Nikolaos Sarafianos, Theodore Giannakopoulos, Christophoros Nikou, Ioannis A. Kakadiaris

Visual attributes, from simple objects (e.g., backpacks, hats) to soft-biometrics (e.g., gender, height, clothing) have proven to be a powerful representational approach for many applications such as image description and human identification. In this paper, we introduce a novel method to combine the advantages of both multi-task and curriculum learning in a visual attribute classification framework. Individual tasks are grouped after performing hierarchical clustering based on their correlation. The clusters of tasks are learned in a curriculum learning setup by transferring knowledge between clusters. The learning process within each cluster is performed in a multi-task classification setup. By leveraging the acquired knowledge, we speed-up the process and improve performance. We demonstrate the effectiveness of our method via ablation studies and a detailed analysis of the covariates, on a variety of publicly available datasets of humans standing with their full-body visible. Extensive experimentation has proven that the proposed approach boosts the performance by 4% to 10%.

Dintre toate statele membre ale Uniunii Europene, Romania are cea mai accelerata crestere a ratei inflatiei. Daca la inceputul anului aceasta era de aproximativ 4,3%, in luna iunie, rata inflatiei anuale atinge deja 5,4%. Este un nivel foarte ridicat, care impovareaza traiul romanilor de zi cu zi, conform analistilor. Datele publicate anterior de Institutul National de Statistica (INS) arata ca rata anuala a inflatiei a urcat in februarie 2018 pana la 4,7%, de la 4,3% in ianuarie 2018, pe fondul scumpirii marfurilor alimentare cu 3,74% si a celor nealimentare cu 6,27%. In ultimele doua luni, rara anuala a inflatiei s-a majorat fata de primele luni ale anului, ajungand la 5,4%. Citeste si: Mastercard doreste introducerea cardurilor biometrice Rata anuala calculata pe baza indicelui armonizat al preturilor de consum (IAPC) a fost, in iunie, de 4,7%. O rata anualizata a inflatiei de 5,4% nu a mai fost consemnata din anul 2013. Potrivit INS, rata medie a inflatiei in ultimele 12 luni (iulie 2017 - iunie 2018) fata de precedentele 12 luni (iulie 2016 - iunie 2017), calculata pe baza IPC, este 3,6%. Determinata pe baza IAPC, rata medie este 2,9%. Cresterile anualizate de preturi au fost, in iunie, de 3,86% la marfurile alimentare, de 7,82% la marfuri nealimentare si de 2,58% la servicii. Banca Nationala a Romaniei (BNR) a majorat usor, de la 3,5% la 3,6% prognoza de inflatie pentru luna decembrie 2018, mentinand-o la 3% pe cea pentru decembrie 2019. In editia anterioara a Raportului, prognoza de inflatie pentru decembrie 2018 era de 3,5%, cu un varf de 5% in trimestrul II; in actuala editie, prognoza pentru decembrie este de 3,6%, cu oscilatii in jurul valorii de 5% in trimestrele II si III, urmata de o temperare in trimestrul IV.

          Facebook pushes facial recognition tech      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
MENLO PARK, CALIFORNIA — Social media giant Facebook is pushing facial recognition as a way to safeguard online identities, but is instead raising concerns over privacy in several sectors. According to the New York Times, Facebook's facial recognition technology works by analyzing users' photos and generating a string of numbers called a 'template' that's unique to each user. When photos and videos are posted to the social network, the unnamed faces are scanned and matched to names and templates stored in a database. A Facebook spokeswoman claims that if the system cannot find a match, it doesn't identify the unknown face, adding that the facial data is deleted immediately. While it's possible to turn facial recognition off, critics still find the software problematic, since it scans every image- even of people who have opted out of the feature. Facebook has also applied for several patents that use the technology. One aims to tailor ads by analyzing users' facial expressions via their phone camera. Another checks shoppers' online profile and uses it to determine a 'trust level'. This Big Brother-style approach to facial data is worrisome, especially since Facebook doesn't exactly have the best track record for honesty, or for keeping user data safe. Fortunately, a lot of groups recognize this and are moving to protect biometric data. The company is facing a class-action suit filed by Illinois consumers for violating a state biometric privacy law, and could stand to lose money and what's left of their reputation if it moves forward.

"We’re Living in a Deep State Paradise"
by Bill Bonner

NORMANDY, FRANCE – "Clowns to the left of us… jokers to the right – what a hoot it is to watch them jump and howl. Trade barriers… LGBT bathroom policies… the Dow… Elizabeth Warren… Rudolph Giuliani… unemployment… QT [quantitative tightening]… Canadians sneaking across the border to buy our shoes – there’s no shortage of louche entertainment in yesterday’s events. But what about tomorrow? We learn from the papers that computers can beat us at chess, write better essays, and drive our cars. So far, so good.

Identified Undesirable: Alas, these same computers can also pick our face out of a crowd… cancel our credit cards… and take away our passports. Using algorithms and Big Data, they can also identify us as “undesirable”… or worse. That’s when your editor sees the scaffold going up in front of him… and there is the hangman approaching with a noose in his hands. Last week, a couple of reports added to his soucis.

First, the IRS announced that it would block passports for 362,000 Americans who are late on their taxes.
From where in the Constitution does the tax collector get the right to confine citizens who have never been convicted of a crime? We don’t know.

We believe our own accounts with the IRS are in good order. But the “tax code” had 74,608 pages in 2016; there is plenty of room for disagreement, ambiguity, and interpretation. Our own tax return is more than two inches thick. It is prepared by professionals. Could they make a mistake? Of course, they could. Could the IRS make a mistake… or worse, intentionally try to make life difficult for us?

It would never do such a thing, you say. In 2013, the IRS apologized for targeting conservative groups for extensive auditing. It admitted that it had given especially harsh treatment to groups with “tea party” or “patriot” in their names and promised it wouldn’t do it again. Of course, it won’t. And it won’t make mistakes, either.

Targeted by Spooks: Already, in addition to the IRS’s “no passport” list are the feds’ “no fly” and “hit” lists. An interesting feature of these lists is that you never know if you are on them… or why. The feds don’t have to prove anything. An interesting case arose recently wherein a man found out, apparently by accident, that the feds were trying to kill him. He went to a wedding in the Middle East… and in came a missile attack. Who were they shooting at? Then, he realized it was him! He thought it was an accident; the spooks had mistaken him for someone else. But there was nowhere to go to appeal… no court in which he could prove his innocence. The whole matter was hidden from view, behind a sordid screen of “national security.”

Meanwhile, in May, China officially began its “social credit” system. The idea is to amalgamate electronic sources of information on each of its 1.4 billion citizens and then target them for rewards or punishments, depending on their scores. 'The Week' magazine was on the case: "Government documents show a plan to block poorly scored citizens from air or rail travel for up to a year, though perhaps less for minor infractions like leaving a bike parked on a footpath. More than 7 million citizens have already been blocked from travel, Human Rights Watch reports, for offenses like “insincere” apologies."

For the first time in history, the internet, with its electronic surveillance, and the collusion of data accumulators – Google, Facebook, Amazon, and others – make it possible for the authorities to control and manipulate every aspect of life. Algorithms can now do what used to require whole squads of spooks, snitches, and sinister agents.

Did you ever attend a meeting of the group Americans for Limited Government? Did you ever talk to a known undesirable? Do you believe Congress is run by a bunch of incompetent crooks? Do you read the Diary? Are you insincere? Put away the waterboards. Send the torches and pliers back to the tool shop. There is no longer any need to ask, let alone to torture. The feds already know everything.

Deep State Paradise: The National Security Agency (NSA) has been monitoring our telephone conversations for years. Amazon, Facebook, Google, and others know what we do, what we want, and even what we think. And now, Big Technology is working with the feds to use this data to control us.

Again, back in China… The New York Times: "In some cities, cameras scan train stations for China’s most wanted. Billboard-size displays show the faces of jaywalkers and list the names of people who don’t pay their debts. Facial recognition scanners guard the entrances to housing complexes. Already, China has an estimated 200 million surveillance cameras – four times as many as the United States."

That’s just one piece of the system. The data flow in from GPS, social media, credit cards, banks, job sites – just about everywhere. Then, the feds can manipulate outcomes simply by editing the “news”… or denying access to important services… or applying individualized rewards or penalties. Even highway tolls can be adjusted for each car, depending on what behavior the authorities want to modify.

The New York Times again: “This is potentially a totally new way for the government to manage the economy and society,” said Martin Chorzempa, a fellow at the Peterson Institute for International Economics. “The goal is algorithmic governance,” he added.

Just 18 years ago, America’s five largest corporations were companies that provided essential goods and services – ExxonMobil, General Electric, Ford, General Motors, and Walmart. Now, the five largest corporations all truck in data: Apple, Amazon, Alphabet (Google), Microsoft, and Facebook. And they are using this data – in collusion with the feds – to create a Deep State paradise.

“But what do I have to fear,” asks the good citizen? “I don’t do anything wrong. I have nothing to hide.” Here at the Diary, we have a sunny disposition and undying faith in public officials. What do we have to worry about? After all, the “government is all of us,” Hillary Clinton assured us. It would never do anything that wasn’t for our own good, would it?

We are serene… and overjoyed, of course. With so much new control, the Deep State will help us be better people… never jaywalking… never speeding… never trying to save on our taxes… and certainly, never, ever criticizing our democratically elected leaders, no matter what numbskulls they appear to be.
In short, it will work like a lobotomy, helping us be model citizens.

We’re all for it. Sincerely.

NSA, are you listening?"

"Verizon Business’ new headquarters sits on a large tract of open land in Ashburn, Va., primed and ready for expansion to meet the next generation of government communications. The connecting buildings- which resemble a giant convention center or a major international airport’s departure terminal- house the managed network services that Verizon Business provides to many federal agencies, including the intelligence and defense communities. For that reason, much of the center is off-limits to visitors.

The heart of the Verizon facility is the 30,000-square-foot, highly secure Verizon Government Network Operations and Security Center. Photography is not permitted, and press visits, such as the one arranged for Washington Technology, are limited. Access to the top-secret center is controlled by thumbprint and card biometrics identification and monitored by an array of video surveillance devices and motion detectors. All employees in the complex must have at least a secret clearance. The company can compete for work from the Defense Department and intelligence agencies up to the top-secret level, Starks said."

          Niger: Niger: Country Operation Update, June 2018      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Source: UN High Commissioner for Refugees
Country: Algeria, Cameroon, Eritrea, Ethiopia, Libya, Mali, Niger, Nigeria, Somalia, South Sudan, Sudan

KEY FIGURES

  • 1,536 Refugees evacuated temporarily from Libya to Niger as part of the ETM (Emergency Transit Mechanism) from November 2017 – June 2018

  • 2,013 Persons profiled by UNHCR in Agadez seeking asylum

  • 17,758 Persons internally displaced in the Tillaberi region

Operational Context

The key situations include:

  1. The Mali situation: began in 2012 with the outbreak of conflict in northern Mail. The regions of Tillaberi and Tahoua bordering Mali and hosting the majority of the refugees are increasingly affected by insecurity and terrorism. A State of Emergency was declared last year, and extended for a further 6 months in February 2018. There are currently 58,035 Malian refugees in Niger. UNHCR aims to support the socio-economic integration of these refugees and the closure of the camps by the end of 2019 through urbanization and other programmes aimed at integration. A regional EU Trust Fund project was recently launched aimed at strengthening the resilience of displaced populations in northern Mali and supporting peaceful coexistence between communities.

  2. The Nigeria situation: began in 2013, with the arrival of the first Nigerian refugees across the border fleeing Boko Haram. The situation deteriorated with the first attacks in Niger territory in 2015. There are over 250,000 displaced persons in the region. The majority live in spontaneous sites or with the local population, while UNHCR manages one refugee camp, with 14,130 people (as of 3 July 2018). Another EU Trust Fund project is ongoing aimed at supporting economic recovery and municipal investments through the construction of durable housing.

  3. Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs): The displaced population in the Diffa region is extremely mixed, including refugees, IDPs and Returnees. Efforts are underway to complete biometric registration of all displaced persons, including IDPs, who are often faced with similar protection risks as refugees. However, the IDP situation in Niger has become more complex with increasing insecurity in the region of Tillaberi, bordering Mali. In 2018, attacks and insecurity in the area have resulted in the internal displacement of at least 17,758 people so far. Protection monitoring, advocacy, capacity building sessions and coordinated efforts with humanitarian actors are ongoing to ensure close follow up on the situation.

  4. Mixed Migration: Niger is a major crossroads of migratory movements northwards towards Libya,
    Algeria and the Mediterranean. These migratory flows constitute mixed migration, including economic migrants as well as persons in need of international protection. In Agadez, UNHCR works to identify asylum seekers within the migratory flows and works with the government, as well as IOM and NGOs to provide these persons with information and assistance. 2,013 persons, mostly Sudanese, are currently profiled by UNHCR in Agadez. 24% of them are minors and 202 are unaccompanied or separated children. The situation has become more complex in the last months, with the addition of downward movements from Libya and Algeria.

  5. Emergency Transit Mechanism (ETM): This unique programme aims to provide life-saving protection, assistance and long-term solutions to extremely vulnerable refugees trapped in detention in Libya, through temporary evacuation to Niger. The aim is to deliver protection and identify durable solutions, including resettlement for these refugees, who are mainly Eritrean, Somalian, Ethiopian, and Sudanese. Their profiles mainly include survivors of torture or other forms of violence in the country of origin and/or transit countries (e.g. Libya) and others with compelling protection needs. Many of them are unaccompanied children (approximately 260) and women and girls at risk. To date, 1,536 people have been evacuated from Libya to Niger and a total of 203 individuals have departed for resettlement from Niger to France, the Netherlands, Sweden and Switzerland. Other countries offering resettlement places are Germany, the UK, Finland, Canada,

          DERMALOG Revolutionizes Multi-biometrics With Real-time Recognition      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

HAMBURG, Germany, July 11, 2018 /PRNewswire/ --

With its Automatic Biometric Identification System, the Hamburg-based company DERMALOG provides the next level of secure identification. It compares multiple biometric features simultaneously and sets new records in matching speed.  

generated by system

Biometric identification methods already exist in many areas of daily life, whether for passport control at the airport or for unlocking mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets. However, often only one biometric feature - either fingerprint or face - is checked. Solutions that match multiple features are much more secure and more accurate. DERMALOG provides such a solution with its Automatic Biometric Identification System (ABIS).

To identify a person, DERMALOG ABIS combines the matching of fingerprints and faces. For even more accuracy, the system can also check the eyes, or more precisely, the irises. Beside its multi-modal capabilities, also the speed of DERMALOGs ABIS is outstanding: It can compare up to 3.6 billion fingerprints, over 1 billion faces and 25 million eyes per second. DERMALOG's high-speed ABIS is the first system to enable real-time biometric recognition when matching large databases. SGS-TÜV Saar recently confirmed the system's speed records.

"With DERMALOG ABIS we position ourselves once again as an innovation leader and provide the next level of secure identification," says DERMALOG CEO Gunther Mull. The system is already in use worldwide, for example, in banking, border controls and issuing official documents such as ID cards, passports and driver's licenses.

          DNA Testing on Separated Migrant Families Needs Robust Privacy Safeguards      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Last week, a federal official confirmed that the Trump administration, under a court order to reunify families that have been separated at the border, has begun using DNA tests to match children and parents in their custody. The official, speaking to CNN, said, “To our knowledge, this is a cheek swab and is being done to expedite parental verification and ensur[e] reunification with verified parents due to child welfare concerns.” Although this is not the first time immigration officials have relied on genetic testing to confirm familial relatedness, such testing has never been conducted on such a large scale.

As others have pointed out, the government should never have had to resort to genetic testing to sort out any of these families. The Department of Health and Human Services has had nearly 3,000 separated immigrant children, including about 100 under the age of 5, in its custody. Yet, as the New York Times has reported, “[r]ecords linking children to their parents have disappeared, and in some cases have been destroyed.” With court-ordered deadlines looming and already past, the spotty documentation has left HHS scrambling to reconnect families without reliable data. HHS Secretary Alex Azar said the agency has ruled out traditional methods like obtaining birth certificates (too slow) or asking children (unreliable). Instead, he said, the agency is using DNA testing as a faster, more reliable route to reunification. It’s a controversial move. But now that the administration has chosen to use this technique, it needs to ensure that it imposes certain safeguards to minimize the invasion of privacy that genetic sampling involves.

As of this writing, it remains unclear how long DNA sampling has been going on, exactly how it is taking place (both cheek swabs and blood tests have been reported), or what kind of consent officials are attempting to obtain from either children or their relatives. Nor it is clear precisely who is conducting the sampling and analysis, or whether any of the DNA samples or data are being shared with outside parties or stored in any databases. In a recent court declaration, one official stated that “ORR grantees,” “DHS personnel,” and “field teams deployed by HHS” are swabbing cheeks, and the swabs are then being sent to “a third-party laboratory services provider,” though multiple media outlets and advocates report that the Department of Homeland Security and HHS have not responded to requests for further information on the testing.

Certainly, reunifying families separated under President Trump’s “zero tolerance” separation policy should be a priority. But using genetic sampling to facilitate reunification raises a host of legal and ethical challenges. When companies like 23andMe and MyHeritage offered to undertake genetic testing to aid in reunification, many experts, including the American College of Medical Genetics and Genomics spoke out against the efforts. One group of over a dozen geneticists, genetic counselors, and ethicists signed on to a response in the Baltimore Sun making the case that that DNA testing is not an appropriate way to reunite families, writing that “parents know their children and vice versa.” These experts also expressed concern about the possibility that DNA testing “could reveal unexpected family relationships (such as adoption, non-paternity, consanguinity) that are irrelevant to the goal of reunification.” Two prominent civil rights groups representing some of the immigrant families, RAICES Texas and the Texas Civil Rights Project, declined offers from consumer DNA-testing companies to provide kits. RAICES communication director Jennifer K. Falcon said the organization doesn’t support the government using them either, in part because it simply is not possible for migrant children to consent to testing.

With the administration confirming that such testing is underway, however, the debate may have to turn to whether the government can accomplish testing and reunification in a way that minimizes the potential for misuse. Thankfully, on Tuesday the same federal district judge who ordered family reunification also ordered significant limits on the government’s use of DNA testing to accomplish that goal. The court included instructions about the cases in which the government should and shouldn’t administer such testing, and how it should handle the samples. (We have yet to see whether the Trump administration might seek to stay the order.)

These limitations are welcome. And assuming they hold, they also reflect several safeguards that federal law and practice already recognize. But the administration’s privacy protections should go further. There are at least three essential safeguards that officials should put in place. Each has a basis in existing law and practice related to genetic data volunteered for a different kind of family reunification—the rules that govern the DNA samples collected as part of the FBI’s missing persons program.

First, the government must ensure that the DNA data is used only for reunification purposes. This means making sure that those collecting the genetic samples and doing the analysis keep their data separate from systems used for crime detection and other purposes. The Trump administration has already at least acknowledged that this should be important. Jonathan White, the deputy director for children’s programs at the Office of Refugee Resettlement, the HHS agency overseeing the separated children, asserted that HHS will “use [DNA] results only for verifying parentage.” The district court order yesterday also specifically instructed that DNA samples not be used for any other purpose.

The statement and order spell out a crucial limitation, as the repurposing of genetic data for criminal investigations and other uses is a real concern. Local police departments frequently retain voluntarily provided DNA samples—including DNA obtained from crime victims—in off-the-books databases. These “rogue” databases can jeopardize legitimate law enforcement efforts by dissuading individuals from cooperating with police, and flout legal limits regarding consent and expectations of privacy. Considering how the Trump administration has talked about and treated immigrants at the border, worries about the potential use of immigrants’ genetic data for profiling and tracking immigrants after they are released from custody aren’t exactly far-fetched either.

The national missing persons program provides some legal precedent for the collection and use of genetic data for the limited purpose of reunifying families. In addition to keeping databases of DNA profiles from arrested or convicted individuals and from crime scene evidence, the FBI also maintains similar but separate databases for identifying missing persons. Collectively, the FBI refers to these databases and the software that powers them as the Combined DNA Index System, or CODIS. The national missing persons program seeks to match DNA profiles from unidentified persons (often, human remains) with DNA profiles “voluntarily contributed from relatives of missing persons.” As explained in the FBI’s operational procedures manual, authorities must store DNA profiles in the missing persons databases separately from the offender and forensic profiles, and are only allowed to compare profiles in the voluntary family reference database to those in the unidentified persons database.

For family reunification purposes, children separated from their parents at the border might resemble “unidentified” persons. The parents of these separated children, in turn, resemble individuals who might contribute DNA to the family reference database. Obviously, the analogy isn’t a perfect fit. Most significantly, the status of separated immigrant children as nominally “unidentified” stems from the government’s failure to properly track these families after separation, not from some unknown criminal element. Moreover, as numerous experts have explained, voluntary consent—the cornerstone of the FBI’s family reference databases—is difficult, if not impossible, to obtain for individuals in government custody. Finally, the FBI’s CODIS databases are designed for use by criminal justice agencies for law enforcement purposes, while immigration offenses can be civil or criminal in nature.

Still, if the government continues to pursue DNA identifications for reunification purposes, the FBI’s strict rules limiting the use of family reference data provides a model for appropriate sequestration. As I have suggested elsewhere, such sequestration is essential for any entity conducting this genetic analysis, including both government labs and third-party contractors—a crucial consideration, given that the government is using a yet-to-be-publicly-identified lab services provider for this family reunification testing.

Second, the government should also limit any DNA sequencing to the minimum amount required to establish genetic relatedness. Again, the FBI’s missing persons program may provide a model for minimally invasive testing. Typically, CODIS’s DNA profiles are drawn from 20 highly variable locations on the human chromosomes, which can provide enough information to determine a match or close relative. These profiles consist of data drawn from noncoding DNA, meaning that the locations of the DNA sequenced don’t code for proteins. (Consumer genetic profiles, by contrast, typically rely on coding DNA to determine an individual’s traits and health risks.) In upholding compulsory DNA sampling of individuals arrested or convicted of crimes, courts, including the Supreme Court, have emphasized that noncoding DNA is relatively uninformative, and therefore only a minimal invasion of privacy.

But scientists are beginning to find that these portions of DNA are not merely the “junk” they once thought. For example, researchers are beginning to find links between a host of genetic disorders and certain noncoding regions of the genome. The potential to detect such intimate information may complicate even this restricted sampling, and it highlights the importance of limiting how the government (or any third parties) uses and stores this data. Insofar as familial relatedness is to be established by genetic means, the government should seek to learn enough to successfully reunify families—and as little about everything else as possible.

Third, government officials must ensure that any parties involved in collecting and analyzing DNA samples destroy both the samples and related data once a family reunification has occurred. Unless and until this information is destroyed, the risk that authorities or other parties could repurpose this information for profiling, tracking, criminal investigation, or other uses remains. The district court agreed. The judge instructed that the DNA samples must be destroyed within seven days. Unfortunately, it’s possible the order may not have gone far enough. The government should guarantee that it, as well as any third parties assisting with DNA identifications, will destroy both the DNA samples and related data to ensure adequate privacy protection.

Here, again, the administration could look to the CODIS missing persons program as a model. According to FBI procedures, officials must remove DNA records of a relative of a missing person once, “the missing person … has been identified.” As family reunification involves collecting genetic information from both children and parents, all parties handling this information should destroy both sets of genetic samples and related data once their reunification purpose has been served.

The Trump administration’s turn to genetic testing is unfortunate and likely unnecessary—and it was, above all, almost certainly avoidable. It also leaves many ethical questions unanswered. But it is the approach the government appears to have adopted. It is encouraging that the district court overseeing family reunification efforts has recognized the importance of limiting the government’s use of this controversial testing. We have yet to see exactly how the compliance with this order will play out, however. In light of the carelessness with which the U.S. government tore these families apart, the very least it owes them is a swift reunification and an assurance that the method it uses will not be used to harm them again.

          Illinois’ Supreme Court Should Affirm that Six Flags Violated the State’s Biometric Privacy Law      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
By CDT summer intern Edward Ruse. There is something unique about biometric information – literally, it’s one of a kind. Fingerprints, facial recognition patterns, iris scans, and other biometric information are largely immutable, making them far more sensitive than most unique identifiers or other personal data. When this information is improperly collected, shared, or used for tracking or surveillance, individuals are essentially stripped of their ability to protect their privacy.  A Six Flags Finger Scanner (source: Six Flags) This is part of the reason why so much attention has been paid to Illinois’ Biometric Information Privacy Act (BIPA), which arguably provides the strongest legal protections for biometric data in the United States. BIPA includes a number of important provisions regulating the “collection, use, safeguarding, handling, storage, retention, and destruction of biometric identifiers and information.” The law also provides…

           When Do Privacy Regulations Go Too Far?       Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

In January, Google launched a new feature in its Google Arts & Culture app that allowed users to take a selfie and find out whether their face matched any of those in historical paintings. The new search tool was nothing more than a momentary amusement for most people, albeit one that was wildly popular. However, people in two states — Texas and Illinois — were left out of the fun because of state privacy laws restricting the use of facial recognition technology. Unfortunately, laws like these may ultimately cost consumers and businesses much more than just access to the latest trending apps.

Biometrics — quantifiable measurements about a person’s physical or behavioral characteristics, such as how someone looks, speaks or walks — are useful for many different types of applications. For example, they are used to increase efficiency, such as by automatically identifying individuals, and to increase security, such as by adding an additional layer of verification to a multi-factor authentication system. One company has even pioneered a wearable device that provides a new type of “always on” biometric, allowing users to authenticate themselves by their unique heartbeat.

Unfortunately, some privacy activists have vigorously opposed the growing ubiquity of biometrics since its earliest days. This opposition has led to the passage of laws like the Biometric Information Privacy Act (BIPA), the state law that kept Illinoisans out of the recent Google app. This law, which was the first of its kind when the state passed it in 2008, requires companies to obtain prior written consent from individuals before using biometrics, as well as to provide written notification detailing the specifics of how they will collect, use and store that information.

Now a decade old, the law shows the unintended consequences of heavy-handed privacy regulations. Originally, proponents of the law were concerned about widespread identity theft and government surveillance. While these problems have not materialized in any state, BIPA has become a roadblock to even some rudimentary uses of biometrics in Illinois.

One problem is that even minor violations of the law can subject companies to steep penalties of up to $5,000 per infraction, even if there is no actual consumer harm. And since BIPA allows individuals to file private lawsuits for violations, it has opened the door to more than 30 class-action lawsuits against companies operating in Illinois in 2017 alone.

A number of tech companies have faced significant class-action lawsuits for potential violations. Facebook, for example, faces massive potential fines because of a feature on the social network that used facial recognition technology to automatically tag photos of friends. Shutterfly, a popular online photo publishing service, has already settled a BIPA class-action lawsuit for an undisclosed amount. The problem for these companies is that obtaining prior consent is impractical for certain applications, such as analyzing photos uploaded by users.

But it is not just tech companies who are caught in the crosshairs of this law. Many businesses are running afoul of the notification requirements as well. For example, some companies are upgrading their antiquated time and attendance systems to improve their employees’ work hours and replacing them with more advanced biometric systems. These biometric systems avoid problems such as “buddy punching” where one employee clocks in or out for their absent coworker. But implementing these systems successfully under BIPA has proven difficult, and a number of companies in Illinois now face lawsuits for using these time clocks for their employees.

While state privacy laws are often well-intentioned, as BIPA shows, their unintended consequences can be far-reaching. The Illinois legislator who originally introduced BIPA has tried to amend the law because he says he never intended to restrict many of these activities, but fixing legislation is never easy. Surprisingly, a number of states are considering copycat legislation that would similarly limit biometrics. This would be a mistake. Rather than imposing new restrictions on biometrics, states would better serve local residents and businesses by encouraging greater use of this technology to increase productivity and improve security.
