52 million Americans on biometric database

52 million Americans could be on the Next Generation Identification (NGI) biometric database by 2015, regardless of whether they have ever committed a crime or been arrested.

The database will also hold fingerprints, of which the FBI has around 100 million records, as well as retina scans and palm prints.

    The global rise of national biometric ID cards

    The use of biometric national identity cards, using rfid chip technology, is continuing to grow around the world.

    One man has recently become the very first person able to board a plane due to an rfid chip implanted into his hand.

    Around the world there are various endeavors in many countries which are seeking to promote rfid technology and biometric identification.

    According to a report in 2014 by Acuity Market Intelligence, it was estimated that in five years, roughly half of the world population will be registered with national biometric identification cards.

    The program has already been well underway in many countries for years now and it continues to grow.
