National ID System To Be Built On Microsoft's .NET?

At first I thought this was a joke - Microsoft and HP developing the National ID system, but alas it is not a story out of The Onion after all...

"Yahoo is running a story about HP's national ID plan, 'The need to securely identify people moving across national and international borders has never been more important than it is today,' said Jim Ganthier, worldwide leader, Defense, Intelligence and Public Safety, HP. 'HP and Microsoft are working together to provide government agencies the ability to access the integrated data streams needed to securely identify people both in the physical and virtual worlds.'"
