Abstract
Imagine getting pulled over for running a stop sign and learning for the first time – from the cop – that you are HIV-positive. People in China are required to carry electronic, swipeable ID cards that hold their political views, their HIV status, their mental health situation, and much more.

We'll examine the history of these cards, where the data is housed, who can access it, what vulnerabilities might exist in this system, what can be done about it, and what it means for human rights.
