Submission + - Virginia building its own TIA system? (timesdispatch.com)

schwit1 writes: Virginia is developing a master identity database of its subjects and it's called e-ID.

Using Department of Motor Vehicles records as its core, the state government is quietly developing a master identity database of Virginia residents for use by state agencies. The state enterprise record — the master electronic ID database — would help agencies ferret out fraud and help residents do business electronically with the state more easily, officials said.

While officials say the e-ID initiative will be limited in scope and access, it comes at a time of growing public concern about electronic privacy, identity theft and government intrusion."It makes it easier to compromise your privacy," said Claire Guthrie Gastañaga, executive director of the American Civil Liberties Union of Virginia. "They're using DMV for some other purpose than driving."
