RFID systems and applications consistently gain in maturity, becoming increasingly automated and continually enabling new heights of process sophistication. The result is an improved and more convenient world in which logistical streams of goods are transparent, people and objects can be uniquely identified and transactions take place at lighting speeds. With these new and innovative capabilities, however, come threats to privacy, denial-of-service and replay attacks specifically designed for RFID, to name just a few. In this presentation, the speaker will discuss this new environment and its ever-changing landscape of vulnerabilities in light of specific applications to deduct a classification of solutions and subsequent security needs, and present specific technologies, both proprietary and open, focused on securing RFID systems.
