This post is particularly to Nick, am I over reacting?? but all comments welcome.....
It would seem that the makers are not keen to discuss the issues surrounding credit and debit card security, whilst the banks continue to find new easy ways to pay for train journeys with walk and drive past swipe payments - just one of the many RFID useful 'easy day ' functions
So far my research is alarming and worrying. I find that devices can be relatively easily constructed that render security systems pretty useless and leave the door wide open for abuse. Which in fact is what is happening.
Many of the issues keep coming back to the type of computer engineering in which you have substantial expertise.
I would like your opinion on the state of the industry, I am a materials handling engineer and have been asked to write an article on RFID and every time I search the same topics keep popping up - should we be concerned ? What is you personal opinion ?
PS I also found this too?
