It has been reported that the Taliban is believed to have seized the U.S. military’s biometric devices known as the Handheld Interagency Identity Detection Equipment (HIIDE). The technology stores iris scans, fingerprints and biographical data, and has been used as a means of tracking terrorists and other insurgents. The devices were also used, and were intended to be used, to gather biometric data of the Afghan population.
