the Virus in RFID tags article indicates wrong approach

By A. Kis 2006-03-17 01:03:13 PM

The article makes one think the industry is taking the wrong approach. It speaks of the defense that the RFID tags don't have sufficient capacity to transmit a virus.

The limitation on the capability of the normal tags is not a defense to an attack by a sophisticated attack computer system, which has unlimited capability, sending a virus containing message to the global readers.

The limitation is only relevant in (possibly) setting up a defense that the reader won't accept and transmit any information message above a certain number of bytes. Then you address whether the virus can be transmitted within that size message.
