Privacy Expert Views

  • Three Roadblocks that Could Hinder Warehouse IoT Adoption

    It's vital to get warehouse personnel excited about RFID, BLE and other IoT-enabled technologies in order to create avenues that can drive innovation and deliver value.

  • Give Customers Control of Their Data or Risk Incurring Their Wrath

    As product managers rush to deliver a new multichannel experience, customers will need increased control of their personal data—even more so than in the context of traditional mobile-app surfing, shopping and the like.

  • A Bag Full of Thumbs

    Do we want to live in a world where people implant chips under their skin so they can access a building's doors, photocopiers and other systems?

  • When Does Tracking Workers Make Sense?

    The right system can provide safety, privacy and security, and serve the interests of both a company and its employees.

  • Add a User Interface to UHF RFID Tags

    Making a simple amendment to the EPC Gen 2 standard will allay privacy concerns, give consumers the ability to control tag behavior and enable new applications.

  • European Privacy and Security Standards

    Compliance with regulatory requirements will help, not hinder, RFID adoption.

  • NFC Mobile Phones and the Future of Privacy

    NFC-enabled phones will offer consumers the opportunity to enhance their privacy by empowering them with their own secure ID devices.

  • The Need for Collaborative Threat Modeling

    To make a logical determination of an RFID system's privacy and security risks, rather than one based on potentially biased perceptions of each individual part, we need to work together to view a security objective in a contextual environment.

  • Don't Shoot the Messenger

    In electronic identity cards and passports, contactless RFID technology enables the biometric—or personal—data to be checked quickly.

  • Authentication and Security

    New encryption techniques promise to make the use of RFID applications more secure, increasing the public's trust in the technology.

  • Educating the Public About RFID

    AIM Global and many of its member companies have worked toward educating consumers about RFID and addressing their privacy concerns.

  • RFID-Enabled IDs: Educate, Don't Legislate

    Whenever we're faced with an emerging, unproven technology such as RFID-enabled identification documents, there is a premature urge to create laws restricting or stopping it.

  • The Consequences of Convenience

    RFID payment devices might mean we'll spend less time in lines, but will they strengthen or weaken our privacy protections? That remains to be seen.

  • Finding RFID's Business Case in China

    Right now, Chinese companies don't have a solid reason to invest in the technology.

  • An RFID Code of Conduct

    Existing laws protect the privacy of patients’ medical information. But an additional layer of protection is needed before RFID technology becomes accepted in the health-care arena.
