The Shenzhen Residence Card program

In germany we discuss about protection of data privacy  by the sanitary card project… But look at china… I really hope, that something like this will never become reality in germany….

The chinese firm China Public Security Technology has won the phase I contract of the “The Shenzhen Residence Card program”. This is a pilot project to “reform” the public security in china. After the three years of the pilot, the Residence Card project should be extended to Shanghai and later to over 680 cities across china.  It includes a “Residence Card” for every resident, which contains many private informations, scanners all over the city and a huge number of security cameras…

…so good luck good ol’ germany ;)
