RFID’s security problem

Found this nice article entitled RFID’s security problem. US authorities have started to use RFID tags in passports and driver’s licenses although the security of RFID for this purpose is highly questionable.

“Gigi Zenk, a spokesperson for the Washington State Department of Licensing, says that Washington has made it illegal for third parties to use data from RFID tags without the tag owners’ consent.”

Well, now I am relieved. Not.
