This book explains how Personal Identification-and Real ID-became part of the American fabric along with their past century's historical ID development.

David J. Haas received his BA in Physics and PhD in Biophysics at the State University of NY at Buffalo. For the next five years, he performed basic research in protein crystallography at several institutions in Europe and the United States. This basic research led to liquid nitrogen cryo-cooling, whereby macromolecular crystals reduced radiation damage during X-ray analysis. Whereas this technique was years ahead of its time, today cryo-crystallography is used at every Synchrotron worldwide for Structural Biology. In 1970, he joined Philips Electronic Instruments in Mt. Vernon NY as principal X-ray scientist, designing some of the first airport X-ray scanners used worldwide during the 1970s. Conceiving the idea of self-expiring visitor badges (changes color in one day to prevent reuse), David and his wife, Sandra, formed Temtec Inc. in 1981 in Suffern NY, and manufactured visitor and temporary IDs for more than 20 years under the brand name TEMPbadge. The company was sold in 2002. Besides many scientific papers and articles, David and Sandra have dozens of patents to their credit. The first edition of his book Personal Identification - Its Modern Development and Security Implications was published in 2009 by ASIS Intl. and has been updated substantially with this second edition.Brian Zimmer has been President of the Coalition for a Secure Driver's License (CSDL) since July 2007, and Keeping Identities Safe since 2012. He has published numerous articles, been cited in newspapers, and has spoken to social and political organizations across the United States as an expert on driver's license security. He has testified before legislative bodies in more than a dozen States regarding the REAL ID Act and before the US Senate on border security. In 1995, Mr. Zimmer was recruited from the Department of Interior Office of the Secretary to the US House of Representatives' Offices of Procurement. As the Director of Information Technology Procurement, he led the installation of modern IT infrastructure at the House buildings, including the implementation of a new financial system and integrated procurement system. From 2001 through 2006, Brian Zimmer served as Senior Policy Advisor and Investigator for the Committee on the Judiciary, US House of Representatives.
