Hacked Oyster cards to form basis of nationwide transport electronic systems says Channel 4 - seamlessly dovetailing ...

Channel 4 News tonight discovered that the Oyster card can be hacked .. and that other local transport systems in Yorkshire and Lancashire are planning to to use cards using the Mifare chip.

What is the betting that for "addedsecurity" these systems will involve lengthy, detailed peronals identification of the users , with photographs, maybe a fingerprint.. etc., a nationwide system "seamlessly dovetailing....
1. "Helping" to establish users identity,
2. Users place of permanent abode,
3. Maybe their employment details, banking details - "so much easier with a Direct Debit Sir",
4. A fingerprint
5. Definitely a photograph - don't want someone else to "accidently" use your card do we sir if it gets mislaid ?
6. Blood Group ? Just a little prick sir as we take a sample to check - in case of an accident, you understand....
7. Seamless dovetailing using Oyster's functionality with all sorts of other seamless, silent and secret systems ....
