The first topic of this month's newsletter are the national id cards being discussed. Here's an amusing tidbit from his writing about it:
How can IDs fail in practice? All sorts of ways. All four components can
fail, individually and together. The cards themselves can be
counterfeited. Yes, I know that the manufacturers of these cards claim
that their anti-counterfeiting methods are perfect, but there hasn't been a
card created yet that can't be forged. Passports, drivers licenses, and
foreign national ID cards are routinely forged. I've seen estimates that
10% of all IDs in the US are phony. At least one-fourth of the president's
own family has been known to use phony IDs.
Heh, that's great.
