Some One: I suppose encrypted password data would function similar to the way centralized encrypted messaging works. Each passport would be encrypted with a unique symmetric key.

Some One: he key would likewise be stored on the passport, but encrypted using a unique public/private key pair. The public key needed to reach passports would be controlled by a central authority.

yardstick: joe: re: vaccinated - that's because it isn't a vaccine. It is an irreversible medical treatment for mitigating the symptoms. It wont stop you from getting covid. By definition, a vaccine prevents you from getting a disease. There are no 'break-through's

EnochWalked: @someone: Yes, it's interesting to compare it to DVD restrictions. I believe that the Content Scramble System actually allowed multiple drive-specific keys, so that if a key was extracted from a drive, future disks could refuse to play on that drive model.

EnochWalked: If each passport's data is encrypted with a unique private key, each border agent would need to get that private key from the central authority to be able to decrypt it and read the passport. The authority might as well just send the plaintext instead.

EnochWalked: yardstick: Actually it has been standard to refer to such treatment as "vaccines", but you're right that this hides an important detail, and a more accurate term in this case would be "leaky vaccine". There are many such "leaky vaccines" in use, but...

EnochWalked: The public wasn't told about this risk of accepting permanent dependency on covid vaccines, nor were we told about "antigenic original sin". So much for informed consent. In the rush to get everyone to "trust the science", they had to hide a few facts.

yardstick: @ew re: vaccines - compare how chicken pox is innoculated against using cowpox. I believe this is a 'true' vaccine. It does not mitigate symptoms, but does what the strategy of a vaccine is is supposed to do, by prompting the body to develop antibodies...

yardstick: It may be that I am approaching the discussion from a technicality, but when we use the word vaccine, and then change what it means to be a vaccine, to describe 'effect' rather than its actual activity, we run the risk or redefining words or terms...

EnochWalked: "The major remaining sticking point appears to be the insistence of the attorney general ... on a charge of moral turpitude – a formal declaration that Netanyahu is desperate to avoid as it could bar him from political life for seven years." Hmm, 7 years?
