January 27, 2005—VeriSign will probably announce enhancements to its RFID technology at the EPC Developer's Conference to be held in Chicago this April, according to Paul Strzelec, director of marketing for VeriSign Directory Services. "EPC DevCon 2005" represents a push by VeriSign to solicit interest in the company's Object Naming Services (ONS) and related RFID technology, so its choice as the venue for the announcement of technology improvements is natural. (In January of last year, VeriSign won the rights to maintain the root directory services for the ONS, an integral component of the anticipated "Internet of Things.")
VeriSign's pronounced focus on RFID security is timely indeed. Just this week, a big story broke (see above) that Johns Hopkins University researchers had cracked an RFID car theft prevention system, heightening awareness and concern over RFID's potential vulnerabilities.
