  • 1. By: Grace Li
    RFID&Government-Issued Documentation
  • 2. Introduction
    RFID – automatic identification technology
    First used in WWII
    Purpose of slidecast is to inform consumers of:
    The technology
    Current uses
    Benefits and risks in government-issued documentation
  • 3. The Technology
    A wireless version of a barcode scanner
    Differ in:
    Amount of storage
    Read method
    Read speed
    A basic RFID system consists of:
    A RFID tag
    A reader
    A controller
  • 4. RFID Tag
    Consists of an integrated circuit & an antenna
    Can be passive or active
    Depending on whether it has its own power source
    Passive tags cost less

  • 5. RFID Reader & Controller
    Reader
    include a radio frequency transceiver and one or more antennas.
    Can be either connected to an external controller or embedded in the control itself
    Differ in size
    Collect much more data than necessary
    Controller
    To filter and interpret data
  • 6. Interactions Among Components
    RFID tag read by the reader
    Reader transfers the information received to controller to be filtered.
  • 7. Current Uses
    Supply chain management
    ID cards, fare cards
    Can be inserted into human
    In medical bracelets
    Passports and driver’s licenses
  • 8. Benefits
    Enhancing global civil aviation safety
    Improving efficiency of aviation operations
    Provide assurance that documents are genuine and unaltered
  • 9. Risks
    RFID tags cannot be “turned off”
    Skimming
    Eavesdropping
    Tracking
    Cloning
  • 10. Security Precautions
    Skimming – metallic element
    Not adequate
    Eavesdropping – Basic Access Control
    Tracking – Random Unique Identification
    Cloning – Public Key Infrastructure
    Can still distinguish nationality of ePassport holders
    Driver’s licenses:
    Off-switch mechanism
  • 11. Conclusion
    Consumer concerns are
    Valid
    Not subdued
    Risks are still present
    Consumers should be given a choice
