FBI biometric photo scanning at the DMV

AHuxley at Slashdot reports:


The FBI is getting fast new systems to look at local North Carolina license photos via the DMV. As the FBI is not authorized to collect and store the photos, they use the North Carolina Division of Motor Vehicles. The system takes seconds to look at chin widths and nose sizes. The expanded technology used on millions of motorist could be rolled out across the USA. The FBI’s Integrated Automated Fingerprint Identification System is also getting an upgrade to DNA records, 3-D facial imaging, palm prints and voice scans.

Slashdot is a great site for those who love technology, but more importantly, it seems to be run by libertarians. (They ran quite a few stories on Ron Paul during the presidential campaign.)
