Contributed by Joanne C. Kelleher Karsten Nohl, the researcher and hacker who almost two years ago declared that Mifare was insecure, will be speaking at the January RFID Security Alliance meeting and recently made two presentations at the 26th Chaos Communication Congress (CCC) conference – http://events.ccc.de/congress/2009/Fahrplan/speakers/1317.en.html .  These CCC presentations have received some widespread press. One was about cloning the radio frequency IDs from the […]


This Is Always the Year for RFID Security

Published January 6, 2010 by SecureRF in AIM Global, Cloning, Hacks, Privacy, RFID, RFID Security Alliance, Security

Contributed by Joanne C. Kelleher Bert Moore, Editor of AIM Global’s RFID Connections newsletter, asked in today’s issue Will this be the year that RFID security is finally implemented? With the long lead time to get to a full project implementation, we think that Bert’s thesis is correct although the time frames may still continue to push out a bit. Moore points out that there […]


Unique characteristics are first step in identifying counterfeiting

Published December 11, 2009 by SecureRF in Cloning, RFID, RFID Tag, RFID Technology, Security

Contributed by Joanne C. Kelleher Engineering researchers at The University of Arkansas recently announced that they have developed a unique and robust method to prevent cloning of passive radio frequency identification tags. The technology, based on one or more unique physical attributes of individual tags rather than information stored on them, will prevent the production of counterfeit tags and thus greatly enhance both security and […]
