What's Lurking in That RFID Tag? - 2 views

    After the professor of computer science and technical director of the Information Security Institute at Johns Hopkins University and his students broke the encryption of a popular RFID system in car keys, it was apparent that there is a security issue when it comes to the use of RFIDs. The stakeholders are consumers who use products that have radio frequency identification systems embedded in them. As seen from the experiment done by the professor and his students, people can have their cars broken if the encryption of this identification is broken. The area of impact is business because this identification is on items sold in stores. The IT system is RFIDs, which are radio frequency identification. These forms of identification are similar to bar codes because when scanned can show people the price of items. However, being more advanced, RFIDs also show what the item is, the trends in sales and much more.
