    • Sensitivities with population because they are not completely welcome in Thailand and have fleed from Myanmar, need to ensure ethics around informed consent and ensuring that the identities can't be used against the population
    • Information unraveling–negative party can't access sensitive information, for example, if just vulnerable population has a smart card, then just owning one can be a risk
