Identités biométrisées et contrôle social

Abstract : Two complementary approaches have been pursued to ensure the identity of people: numbering and biometrics. By allowing their joint use at low cost, digital technologies have created the conditions for their large-scale deployment. This deployment, which had been rejected at several occasions, started in France in the context of the security turn of the end of the twentieth century. However, this use of the most recent technologies has not been accompanied by a critical review of the architectures and procedures inherited from the nineteenth century. This reflection must absolutely be carried out in order to ensure that implemented systems possess characteristics that allow them not to be misused against the population in case of major social disorder.
