RFIDIOts!!! Practical RFID hacking (without soldering irons). presented at HackLu 2008

by Adam ( Major Malfunction ) Laurie,

Summary : RFID is being embedded in everything... From Passports to Pants. Door Keys to Credit Cards. Mobile Phones to Trash Cans. Pets to People even! For some reason these devices have become the solution to every new problem, and we can't seem to get enough of them....
This talk will look at the underlying technology, what it's being used for, how it works and why it's sometimes a BadIdea(tm) to rely on it for secure applications, and, more worryingly, how this off-the-shelf technology can be used against itself... Software and Hardware tools and techniques will be discussed and demonstrated, and a range of exploits examined in detail.
