since the 13th of December 2004 the

European regulation requires all states

of the EU to include in their passports

a microchip that contains a copy of the

printed identity data in a tamper proof

form this new document is more

convenient but it is above all a bulwark

against fraud with the revolutions in

digital technology it is necessary to

make secure identity documents more

reliable of course the current passport

already contains many safeguards but

that's not enough these days someone

else can pass himself off as us this is

called identity theft but this passport

is ours and ours alone of course the

current passport contains our photo but

nowadays a photo can be changed a secure

link is therefore needed between each

citizen and his identity documents a
