Now Mastercard Wants Your Fingerprints

Tyler Durden's picture





 

Submitted by Michael Krieger of Liberty Blitzkrieg blog,

Earlier this week, USA Today reported that massive payment processor MasterCard had joined the FIDO alliance. FIDO is an acronym for Fast IDentity Online, and the group describes itself as:

The FIDO (Fast IDentity Online) Alliance is a 501(c)6 non-profit organization nominally formed in July 2012 to address the lack of interoperability among strong authentication devices as well as the problems users face with creating and remembering multiple usernames and passwords. The FIDO Alliance plans to change the nature of authentication by developing specifications that define an open, scalable, interoperable set of mechanisms that supplant reliance on passwords to securely authenticate users of online services. This new standard for security devices and browser plugins will allow any website or cloud application to interface with a broad variety of existing and future FIDO-enabled devices that the user has for online security.

USA Today reports that:

SAN FRANCISCO — MasterCard is joining the FIDO Alliance, signaling that the payment network is getting interested in using fingerprints and other biometric data to identify people for online payments.

 

MasterCard will be the first major payment network to join FIDO. The Alliance is developing an open industry standard for biometric data such as fingerprints to be used for identification online. The goal is to replace clunky passwords and take friction out of logging on and purchasing using mobile devices.

It’s for your own good, and it’ll probably fight terrorism too!

Apple’s new iPhone 5s smartphone has a fingerprint sensor, but the tech giant is not part of FIDO. However, Google is part of the Alliance, and devices running Google’s Android operating system will have fingerprint sensors by next year.

I’m sure the folks at the Department of Homeland Security will be more than happy that the financial giant will make mass collection under its Biometric Optical Surveillance System (BOSS) that much easier. Serfs up suckers!

Even Bush's Feces & Urine Are Classified Top Secret

"The White House flew in a special portable toilet to Vienna for Bush's personal use during his visit. The Bush White House is so concerned about Bush's security, the veil of secrecy extends over the president's bodily excretions. The special port-a-john captured Bush's feces and urine and flew the waste material back to the United States in the event some enterprising foreign intelligence agency conducted a sewage pipe operation designed to trap and examine Bush's waste material. One can only wonder why the White House is taking such extraordinary security measures for the presidential poop."

"The Israeli Mossad conducted one such operation against Syrian President Hafez Assad when he visited Amman, Jordan in Feb. 1999 for the funeral of King Hussein. The Mossad and its Jordanian counterpart installed a special toilet in Assad's hotel room that led not to a pipe but to a specimen canister. Assad suffered from diabetes and cancer and the operation was designed to discover the actual medical condition of the ailing leader."

Only those who have believed on the Lord and are eternally secure in their salvation from eternal damnation will be able to resist the mark of the beast. 

Only believing on the Lord saves a person. No works can be added. Salvation is a gift from God, as He gave Himself to die on the cross that we might be re-united with Him and not have to pay the wages of sin: death.

"Each of us has a vision of good and of evil. We have to encourage people to move towards what they think is good . . . Everyone has his own idea of good and evil and must choose to follow the good and fight evil as he conceives them. That would be enough to make the world a better place.”

Not sure I agree fully fonz. There are some whackadoodles whose idea of fighting evil arent necessarily good for mankind. Francis' words open to the door for extremists to justify their actions, especially violent ones. Judeo Christian blueprints at least provide basic 101 on how to treat others. I think the popes words are dangerous

Kito, your comment reminded me of a conversation I had over the weekend. Hitler and Jesus Christ were compared and connected based on my use of two words: reality and truth. How that person correlated the two is dangerous. I believe inaction is a pretense to danger. Fighting evil as the government sponsors is evil. Fighting against temptation is not dangerous. Neither is it dangerous fighting against the false self known as the ego. Yet, those two are extremely evil. Evil is not living in a foreign nation waiting to invade us. It has already invaded the minds of billions and attempting to slowly deactivate the truth within.

There are no evil people, there are only great excuses.

In their own minds nobody is evil or does evil, they're just "defending themselves/their-family/their-country" or "getting them 'cause they're after us" or "retrieving what's rightfully ours" or even "we're saving them from themselves".

And this is nothing new. Why do you think that to make a country do evil things (as America has done) politicians will use the "they're against us" dialetics (such as "they hate us for our freedoms") or the "it's to save them" one (such as "free them from oppression")?

They're unable to print a new version of the current currency. Which leads me to think there won't be any red dollars or whatever.  When the banks re-open after the bank holiday, all you can do is deposit whatever currency is in your matress. Every purchase from then on will be by card.

That is terrible you are feeling so much bad about it.  I am thanking you for telling us what you will not be doing in the futures.  It is making me have better feeling now that I am having knowledges of this important information you are speaking.  Thank you again.  Please be coming back to ZH and telling us more if things are changing in the unforseeble futures because we will be needing to be know that thing.

I have been having much wondering about why so many ZH peoples who are have speaking here are happy to be having images of the sex organs of men.  Many times the thinkings that ZH'ers are trying to be having other ZH'ers to be having are to be having thinkings about the man organs in their mouths.   You are having a sickness in your thinking to be having so much desperation to be expressing the thoughts you are having.  If that is the thinking you are always having when you are being upset you should be trying harder not to have so many angries.  It is making you seem weird.

You are very fake. You obviously speak English and are purposefully acting like you are unknowing. Your conjugations would worse and your use of verbs is as good as a native. Just throwing a fuckin S on the end of any noun to pluralize it is utter BS. Get a life.

Only terrorists and criminals use cash, so if you're not doing anything wrong, you have nothing to hide. 

Just make sure you keep up with the latest and greatest redefinition of what "doing something wrong" means.

I am not having understanding of why the speaking that ZH peoples are having is always the sounding of silly and stupid childrens.   We are almost never having speakings by peoples who are here that is sounding any much better than the  most stupidest talkings you can be reading anywhere on the internet where the stupidest peoples are being.  Like the stupids who are having speaking where they are having talkings about car racing, or footballs, or rock and roll musics, or girls who are nasty with their tongues hanging out when they are dancing like sexing.   Many peoples here should be ashamed of the stupid words they are saying and just not be saying the stupid words they are saying.   I am finding out by the speakings of Americans I am disappointed in the intelligences of Americans.

MasterCard is a private company. I don't see what the big deal is.

It's not like the federal government has access to that data or could compel them to share your prints.

So fucking tinfoil! Typical ZH fear mongering. What are you guys buying that you are trying to hide anyway?

Sorry guys. I'm bored tonight. Trolls have been quiet lately so I thought I'd mix it up a bit.

So anyone who takes a copy of your fingerprint can now gain access to your stuff. PEACHY!! Count me out. At least with my password I can change it... and they have to know the contents of my brain.

No so easy to change one's fingerprints.

A suspicious person would think that it has nothing to do with security and everything to do with being able to identify every individual on the planet and tie what they do to their physical body.

Such a bad idea. People can steal and copy your fingerprints much more easily than a password.  They can lift it off any piece of glassware or anything you touch.

It seems like voice recognition would be much more secure. But, then I suppose they would have to listen to all their customers say FUCK YOU! all the time.

Well a print of my penis may not be able to fit on a credit card,but that's besides the point - I've seen too many movies with cut off fingers used to get past fingerprint scanning devices.

Don't know about you but I have only one penis.

P.S. I use cash when possible.
