ACLU of Northern CA

The ACLU of Northern California has been a leader in generating public and legislative attention to the privacy, personal safety, and financial security risks associated with the use of Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) technology in government-issued identification documents, such as drivers' licenses and student ID cards.

The Stanford Technology Law Review has recently published Rights "Chipped" Away: RFID in Identification Documents<.

The law review article by Technology and Civil Liberties Policy Director, Nicole Ozer, discusses RFID technology, its vulnerabilities, and its impact on civil liberties and consumer privacy.

The article also discusses the development and current status of RFID legislation that is moving though the California legislature and serving as a model for other state action.
