Why a National ID card will not work

Bruce Schneier is the designer of the Blowfish and Twofish encryption algorithms and the author of "Secrets and Lies", one of the best books on Security that I have read. He is, in my opinion, one of the few people out there who really understands security. Here he explains in easy-to-understand terms why a National ID card is a bad idea.

My favorite quote: "There is more security in alert guards paying attention to subtle social cues than bored minimum-wage guards blindly checking IDs"
