IDs can be hacked, biometric database authority reveals

A representative of the Biometric Database Management Authority admitted on Tuesday that its identity card database is not secure, acknowledging the potential for database breaches during a debate on the issue in the Knesset Constitution, Law and Justice Committee.

The Movement for Digital Rights slammed the admission by Naama Ben Zvi Riblis, a lawyer for the authority, saying it validated the group’s claim that the biometric database project could result in an invasion of citizens’ privacy.
