    An interesting proof of concept -- an NFC-enabled SIM card that you can use for checking in at the airport -- but there will need to be several layers of security added to this to make it acceptable.

    Not that the current process is flawless though, but swapping one bad process for another is not really a good solution.

    Nice concept. Will see if it will be implemented widely anytime soon.

    I wish it was that easy, but have about zero faith in this being implemented in a secure way. 10 years into escalating the security theater, we still take shoes off and that takes longer than the whole ticket checking process.
