RFID Susceptible to Cloning, Other Hacks
no RFID enabled badges at the DEF CON security conference in Las Vegas last weekend. Instead the badges were old-school vinyl records. That's probably a good thing, given all the new tools used to hack and abuse RFID signals, some of which were spotlighted at the event. In the event's vendor area, the open source RFIDler RFID reader/writer was among multiple tools being sold and discussed. Francis Brown, partner at security firm BishopFox, had a session at DEF CON called "RFID Hacking: Live Free or RFID Hard."
