Information Security Institute Seminar Series
Continues with Panel on Biometrics and
A National ID Card

The Johns Hopkins University s Information Security Institute (JHUISI) continues its spring seminar series on Tuesday, March 26, with a panel on proposals for a national identification system and the biometric technologies that would likely underlie such a system. The panel is jointly sponsored by JHUISI and the Johns Hopkins Applied Physics Laboratory.

Seminar participants Jim Gilmore, former governor of Virginia; James Lucier, senior analyst at Prudential Securities; Harris Miller, president and chief executive officer of Information Technology Association of America; and Marvin Langston, senior vice president of Federal Telecommunications; will discuss the need to balance the growth of a network of identification information as a component of increased homeland security against that network s impact on our daily lives and on our constitutional and civil liberties.

The talk, which is free, takes place from 9 a.m. to 12 noon in Parson Auditorium, which is in Building 1 on the APL campus. (Directions are online at: www.jhuapl.edu/newsEvents/visitor/direcMap.htm.)

JHUISI was established to tackle the complex technological, legal, ethical and public policy challenges of keeping information private and computer systems secure in an increasingly electronic world.

The institute conducts research and offers courses, drawing on experts from nearly every school and division in the university. It works in partnership with industry and government agencies.
