Soeben erschienen: ein 3-Teiler mit @JannesvanRoermu über #Covidpass #Covidzertifikat Wir haben nachgehakt, Zusammenhänge mit #FunctionCreep und E-Id gefunden. @RecheckHealth hat einen Leak gekriegt um was mit unsere Daten passiert #CovidGesetzNein #CovidGesetzJa (1/)
Was #FunctionCreep von Innovation unterscheidet ist die qualitative Veränderung der Funktionsweise. Einer der möglichen Function Creeps für das #Covidzertifikat überschneidet sich mit der Agenda von mächtigen Interessensgruppen #Privacy #Datenschutz #digsec
Unterdessen behauptet @BAG_OFSP_UFSP das #Covidzertifikat #CovidPass sei nur lokal in der App der Smartphone gespeichert. Ein Leak und weitere Recherchen haben gezeigt: es stimmt nicht. #UVCI #transparenz #digsec >> re-check.ch/wordpress/fr/f…

Just out: a 3-parts series with @JannesvanRoermu on #Covidpass #Covidcertificate We’ve been digging deeper in its links to #FunctionCreep and E-id. Bonus material: @RecheckHealth received a leak on what happens with our data when tested/jabbed #CovidGesetzNein #CovidGesetzJa (1/)
What distinguishes #FunctionCreep from innovation: it involves a qualitative change in functionality. One of the possible function creeps for #Covidpass #Covidcertificate coincides with the agenda of powerful interest groups. #privacy #dataprotection re-check.ch/wordpress/en/f…
Meanwhile, in Switzerland @BAG_OFSP_UFSP claims #COVIDcertificate is stored only locally in the App on your smartphone: "Neither personal data nor the certificates are stored in a central system”. A leak and further research showed: it's more complicated than that #UVCI (3/)

#ID2020 is very quiet having published a single video in 10 months - the #GoodHealthPass launch event (Feb 11 2021 w/ 2,452 views). Equally restrained is the Twitter account created Jan 2021, w/ a mere 384 followers - & 12 tweets. ID2020 Twitter is also on hiatus. #Strategy ImageImageImageImage
"Urgency - While standards-development processes typically move slowly, a cross-sector effort is urgently required to bring #goodhealthpass solutions to market in 2021 & to scale globally – with the same urgency applied to #vaccine development."

The International Air Transport Association (@IATA is a trade association of the world's airlines founded in 1945. IATA has been described as a cartel since in setting technical standards for airlines.

#VaccinePassports
2.

The Travel Pass app, developed by the International Air Transport Association (@IATA), will allow passengers to present pre-departure tests or vaccine certificates on arrival at their destination, enabling them to sidestep quarantine or other restrictions.
3.

@IATA is currently in talks with the UK DfT over the apps use and to which the new 'Covid Status Certificates' for those who have been vaccinated could be added and tied to.

The Digital #NewNormal Part 11:

The globalist's Master-Plan introduces NEW restrictions on our daily lives, we are now being offered only 2 choices.

A. Forced to stay in Economy busting Rolling Lockdowns or B. Prove immunity via Tests & Vaccine Certificates.
2.

The core of this #COVID19 conspiracy is DATA, our Health data, that's what they ultimatly want & according to that data using #AI and #Analytics to form the new social control structures and privileges.

This also opens the way for touchless, #Biometrics & smarter societies.

Tony Blair Today:

"We have the best data systems in the world. Collecting data in one place, with one patient record is going to be absolutely vital, testing, vaccinations, every single thing to do with the development of this disease, is needed."

The first UK lockdown began on 16th March 2020.

3 days later this article appeared.

Bill Gates pointed to major changes for ordinary people that could have privacy and civil rights implications.

What did he say?

“Eventually we will have some 'Digital Certificates' to show who has recovered or been tested recently or when we have a vaccine who has received it,” said Gates.

Gates also called for a “National Tracking System”.

This was the first official hint as to what was planned. Image

@fascinatorfun @mikarv It looks like the SI for the 2nd six-month extension of the retention of #DNA & #biometrics powers for National Security Determinations, under s24 of the #CoronavirusAct2020.

The statutory guidance for NSDs is here:
gov.uk/government/pub…

If they are using NSDs (which must...
@fascinatorfun @mikarv ...be in writing, and signed by a senior police officer in each individual case) for any purpose OTHER than those laid out in the relevant counter-terrorism laws, then they're truly fucked.

Maybe ask the Biometrics Commissioner how many NSDs have been made under COVID?
@fascinatorfun @mikarv Extending 'em a further six months is worrying for reasons other than just the extraordinary powers themselves, though: it's an admission from Government that police forces' capacities are as limited as they were at the peak of the first wave, for matters of #NationalSecurity...

Oh, @ukhomeoffice has been working on it for quite some time!

Alan will no doubt remember the #UKBordersAct2007:

For years, @ukhomeoffice has resisted a proper #statutory framework, independent #oversight & #safeguards for its use of #biometrics. And its risible 2018 'Biometrics Strategy':
gov.uk/government/pub… paved the way for it to spend hundreds of millions on its "#HOB"...

ICO opens investigation into use of facial recognition in King's Cross theguardian.com/technology/201…
“Scanning people’s faces as they lawfully go about their daily lives in order to identify them is a potential threat to privacy that should concern us all,” Denham (@iconews) said. “That is especially the case if it is done without people’s knowledge or understanding.”
@ICOnews "Last month the House of Commons science and technology committee suggested authorities cease trials of such technology until a legal framework was established."

(1/7) What roadmap should #fintech take in the future? Huang Qifan, academic advisor of CF40 and Vice-Chairman of CCIEE shared his insights on P2P and Internet finance on CF40 Yichun Forum. mp.weixin.qq.com/s/WZ2YQxwUoQEG…
(2/7) Huang said “In recent years, under the cover of internet finance, #P2P has successfully attracted savings from netizens with de facto high-interest loans. Repay the debt with new lending through cash pooling has resulted in a host of Ponzi schemes under the internet system.
(3/7) Either #TechFin or #FinTech doesn't and won’t overthrow fundamental principles of traditional finance and financial security. In this regard, we should not only exert the #digital platform to the utmost, but also stick to principles and ideology of modern finance.

"Under an agreement signed in 2018, the two agencies will share biometric data of individuals registered in each of their systems."

"while passengers may be able to opt out of scans for now, this seems unlikely to be an option in just a few short years."

Today @CenDemTech is putting out its proposal for federal privacy legislation. You can read more here, but I wanted to share a few personal reflections: cdt.org/blog/americans… 1/12
"Privacy" is not a good word for what we're talking about anymore, but we seem stuck with it. "#BigData" "#IoT" "#AI" have changed the game, but folks too often take a narrow view of privacy. This was on full display at the FTC's discussion on #adtech: ftc.gov/system/files/d…
See Howard Beales: "There are discrimination problems out there in the world. There’s no doubt about that, but they are discrimination problems. They are not privacy problems." He's not wrong, but he's not right, if that makes any sense. 3/12
