Biometrics in Afghanistan
“Since September, Afghanistan has been the only country in the world to fingerprint and photograph all travelers who pass through Kabul International Airport, arriving and departing.” – NYTimes, “In Afghanistan, Big Plans for Biometric Data”
I remember arriving into Kabul International airport and have my biometric data filed in. Now that this technology has arrived, what implications does it have for local IT companies? Are biometric security measures used elsewhere in the country, if not, how can this be applied to modern IT infrastructure in the country?
