Summary : RFID technology is the new cool. It’s the access pass around our neck, the overpriced contactless train ticket that goes “ping” and the payment card that doesn’t bother with two factor authentication.

Even with issues with the underlying architecture, the majority of implementations out there haven’t quite thought things through (like getting rid of manufacturers keys and locking down the read/write access).

We’re going to melt back the noooiiiice looking plastic on RFIDs and see what’s inside before the government starts using them as mind control devices.
