Summary : Black Hat DC 2007 was supposed to be the
venue for "RFID For Beginners", a talk on the basic mechanisms of
operation used by RFID tags. Legal pressure forced the talk to be
curtailed, with only 25% of the material being presented. The remainder
was replaced with a Panel debate involving IOActive, US-CERT, ACLU,
Blackhat, and Grand Idea Studio. After spending far too much time and
money dealing with lawyers and consulting with some strategic allies,
IOActive has made some relatively minor tweaks to the original
presentation, which will be presented as the first part of this talk.
