MIT and Texas Instruments develop hack-proof RFID chip

More and more devices are showing up with RFID chips built-in, but there is concern that the data on these chips could easily stolen. After all, an attacker doesn’t even need to physically have possession of the RFID chip to get information from it. Protecting the data on the chip with a secret key will thwart a casual data thief, but there are still ways around that. Researchers from MIT have developed a new type of RFID chip (manufactured by Texas Instruments) that they claim cannot be hacked by any current means. They manage this with a combination of integrated power and data storage not previously seen in RFID technology.
