E-passports: Are They the Way to Go?

October 20, 2006 8:24 am | Product Releases | Comments

The State Department is nearing completion of its conversion program for the hotly debated RFID-based electronic passports, or e-passports, despite warnings from security experts that these passports could be accessed or tracked by the wrong individuals. In fact, some security experts feel that the technology contained in this type of passport could be used by terrorists to construct a bomb designed to target anyone of their choosing....

Security for RFID Tags

October 20, 2006 7:20 am | Product Releases | Comments

SecureRF Corporation’s RFID tag device is based on a cryptography that is both lightweight and highly secure. Until now, existing security algorithms could not provide strong authentication and data protection on RFID tags. The reason: These algorithms, many of them over 20 years old, rely on multiplying large numbers and require more computing resources than are available on RFID tags....
