Security and Privacy in Radio Frequency Identification

Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) refers to using tiny devices called tags to carry information about people or things. The technology offers great promise, with applications in everything from supply chain management to library book tracking to more convenient credit cards. Unfortunately, the technology also raises security and privacy problems. For example, without protections, it is possible to clone RFID tags and perform surreptitious tracking via RFID. I will discuss two approaches...

Michio Kaku Interview about man injecting himself with computer virus

Michio Kaku speaks about University of Reading researcher Mark Gasson becoming the first human known to be infected by a computer virus. The virus, infecting a chip implanted in Gasson's hand, passed into a laboratory computer. From there, the infection could have spread into other computer chips found in building access cards.

All this was intentional, in an experiment to see how simple radio-frequency identification (RFID) chips like those used for tracking animals can host and spread...

Theory Plus Practice in Computer Security: Radio Frequency Identification and Whitebox Fuzzing [1/4]

I will describe two areas in computer security that demonstrate the wide range of techniques, from both theory and practice, we need to make impact. First, I treat privacy and security in Radio Frequency Identification (RFID). RFID refers to a range of technologies where a small device with an antenna, or tag is attached to an item and can be queried later wirelessly by a reader. While proponents of RFID promise security and efficiency benefits, the technology also raises serious security...
