And while they're at it making practical laws... how about repealing the
stupid requirement to have a front license plate!
I would pentest the crap out of the digital ID app if it was on my phone. It
would be a huge target for new malware, and especially if it allowed offline
storage of the credential.Secure elements can only take you so far
to protect your data.
Gee another way to steal my identity. NO thank you.
I think I will pass on that, and keep my plastic one thank you, But it should be
optional. Those that want it, great, Those that dont, also great. To me it opens
a whole can of worms, they cant protect your information, no matter what they do
@DNdep There is every reason for all of us to be paranoid about our
personal info. Nothing is safe if it goes over the internet - nothing. Hackers
are stealing personal info from everywhere. My husband is in IT and he says
it's war - and the hackers are winning!No thanks. I'll
keep mine plastic and in my wallet.
Maybe we could update the picture on our drivers license with a selfie?
Amazing the paranoia evident in the comments. As for the question, I'm OK
with DL's being digital AND hard copy. Probably the way it should be.
I know longer believe that anything digital on your devices or in the
"cloud" or whatever is safe and secure. I know that my wallet can be
stolen, but I don't have to worry at night that it is being hacked. Nor do
I want to be driving illegally if I happen to forget my smart phone. Digital
D.L. Ok as an option, but people should never be required to have a smart phone
so they can drive or show ID.
I don't have a cellphone. I don't want a cellphone. EVER!
No please. I don't have a smartphone and have no intention of ever getting
one. Besides that I can think of probably a dozen reasons this is a bad idea.
@ lost in DCIf the repub legislature is supportive of it, I will put
my initial support off to the side and ask, "Just who's going to profit
from this?" We all know the legislature is filled with software developers
who love to use our tax dollars to their benefit. What's wrong
with the old system? If the ACLU is opposed to it, it's
probably for some good fact driven reason. As opposed to the republican
legislature, who often use spin and alt facts to ramrod their ideas down our
throats. Get Educated
Okay by me as long as there is an option on this program. I don't have nor
do I want a "smart phone". And I am sure not going to get one just for
a driver's license app. But, on the other hand, if the guy
sponsoring this bill will buy me a smart phone, then I might use it for just
the driver's license.
The only reason concert tickets, airline tickets and transit passes can be
digital is because the only people accepting them are in a position to
electronically verify them. You don't show your airline ticket to the
bouncer at your local club to get in, or your concert ticket to the waitress at
a restaurant to order wine. Driver licenses are another matter since
they're used for so many purposes other than driving.The police
will easily be able to electronically verify a digital driver license, as well
as stores, restaurants and clubs that are part of a large corporation. But what
about a mom-and-pop store, restaurant or club? All they can do is look at the
image on the phone and decide whether the image looks realistic. That will be
very easy to fake.
How about stay out of our business, some people believe it or not don't own
Ok, let's say you are stopped by the police and they want to see your
Driver's license. Would you then allow them to take your unlocked phone
back to their vehicle to run your number?I don't see this as a
solution to anything other than abuse.
I like the idea. It is forward looking and could be really useful. Having TSA
accept it would be a big help.
In the state of Utah we have enough issues dealing with air pollution,
affordable housing, medicare for all, marijuana, school finance, school safety,
public lands, etc. Please members of the legislature deal with
those important issues. Solve some of the problems, don't create
potentially new ones. Electronic driver's licenses are at the bottom of
In 2017, and my wife in 2018, renewed our licenses. These are high tech cards
reminiscent of U.S. currency. Recently for a job had to produce my 61 year old
birth certificate -- a notarized (embossed) otherwise non-descript photocopy.
Yes, both, along with passports, money, company ids and such can be forged --
but with some effort. Things electronic can be much more easily, fraudulently
reproduced and hacked (even with encryption) -- on a massive scale.This law, which I hope never sees light in Colorado, is a foolish idea.Driver's licenses and the documents I've mentioned above are
far more important and in a different classification than one's
shopper's cards, library cards, insurance cards and even credit cards
(which I prefer the chipped physical items rather than Apple Pay/such which I
I wouldn't like the only option to be digital.
Nope, whats the story of keeping all your egg in one basket. The only way Id
vote for something like this is if its an addition to the hard copy.
Personally, I have never dropped my wallet on a hard floor and had the screen
The State of Utah does not have the IT infrastructure to support such a thing.
We are 20 years backwards.
Yes, please. One less thing out of my wallet, less plastic used, and
makes it more secure if I lose it.
I would be uncomfortable with black hat hackers out there on the prowl.
getting TSA on board is the big issueif the ACLU is opposed to it, I
will put my initial apprehension aside and take a more favorable look at it.
