    "Three million Britons have been issued with the new hi-tech passport, designed to frustrate terrorists and fraudsters. So why did Steve Boggan and a friendly computer expert find it so easy to break the security codes?"


    I just renewed my Canadian passport. I hope it doesn't have a chip...

    I am getting mine next week. Going on an extended one month vacation into Thailand and other asian countries next month. The passport might have an embedded RFID tag, but not sure.

    Next year, we're all expected to require passports when we enter the US! That is just silly. Teh terrorists have won!
