Which shows the other danger that the ID becomes regarded as a
safe and reliable document which it will not be at all unless the
issuing processes are absolutely rigorous - and properly
maintained as such.
Good authentication requires at least two factors - which is why
we have both credit cards and pin numbers.
Too much reliance on just one evidence of ID can be just as
dangerous as no ID since it can bring a false sense of security.
