Abstract

Numerous states around the world have adopted nationwide personal identification systems that collect and manage personal information on residents for convenient government services and efficient government information management (Article 1, RRA). Biometric information has become vital to welfare and emergency services. For instance, it allows a police officer the ability to quickly collect the biometric information of a suspect who has been detained. National defense services collect biometric information to efficiently administer and mobilize national defense resources. Today’s broad array of public welfare services from cradle to grave start with the collection of biometric information. Even after death, biometric information is important for identifying the deceased to ensure the rightful surviving family members receive government benefits and services.
In Korea, the Resident Registration System (RRS) is the national identification system that collects a citizen’s biometric data, such as their facial characteristics and fingerprints, to provide a wide range of public services. (The rest omitted)
