A school in Maryland has installed PalmSecure, a biometric scanning system that requires elementary students to place their hand on infrared scanners in order to pay for their school lunch. The unique nuances of each child’s individual hand will be catalogued and the image encrypted with a numerical algorithm that is combined with the cost of school lunches.
PalmSource, a Japanese corporation specializing inbiometric technology offers this “authentication system” which is a marketed as a necessity in healthcare, security, government, banking, retail and education.
The corporation also provides an array of RFID chiped tags with memory capacity.
The cost to taxpayers and parents for the installation of this Big Brother surveillance system in 43 schools in Maryland is estimated to be $300,000.
PalmSource is being beta-tested in Florida, Mississippi and Louisiana.
The school district of Spring Independent in Houston, Texas believes that “RFID readers situated throughout each campus are used to identify where students are located in the building, which can be used to verify the student’s attendance for ADA funding and course credit purposes.”
