Digitalisation and virtuality impact most upon our politics of security and (inter)national relations in terms of the changing biologised understanding of life that they are helping install. According to the ontology of code shared by the digital and molecular sciences, `bodies' comprised of information and informational exchange mechanisms are bodies-in-formation. Bodies-in-formation betray a virtual potential towards becoming dangerous and so our politics of security are progressively becoming a virtual security politics. This article explores the logic of virtual security politics and their installation throughout military-strategic as well as biometric security systems.
