The article reports that the European Commission has announced the public inquiry of the Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) system to identify citizens' concerns about the technology. RFID tags are being used to track inventory in supermarkets and to encode information in national identity documents. Each tag contains a unique serial number and by associating the serial number with information contained in databases, the tags can be used to provide personal information on the bearer of an identity document or the full manufacturing and shipping history of a consumer product. The commission is concerned about the privacy and security issues raised by such applications.
