Cannot the thief use a legitimate merchant device?

That begs the question, rather than the RFID thief by using a simple RFID reader, aren't they use the best merchant RFID transaction device? Yes, but you'd have to ignore a number of critical factors, including the previous assumption showing how close the thief will have to be to the cards. Remember, merchant readers are only great for a few centimeters. Let's assume that the thief will either be very near the victim's card or has the power to do a long read (maybe a specialized criminal device).

 

Product owner machines have identifying quantities. If the thief efficiently got the victim's cards to participate in a bogus transaction, the cards holder would eventually survey the fraudulent transaction to their card vendor, who would be able to identify the merchant device involved. Not only anyone can buy and use a merchant device. They need to apply for one. Documents must be reviewed and signed, and the merchant has to have a current, trusted confirmed bank account involved, for c

Access Control- Key for Technological Lock

What is Access Control?

Access control is defined as a mechanism or security method to control and regulate the access of work, data and grants permission for accessing and using resources in technological environment. Generally in the environment of working on a database, a user is requested to enter his login credentials to a system and go through the authentication process to verify the user authenticity. After the authentication process, access control security system executes and it matches the user login id with the database of access control to keep a check on the user operations and refrain the user from accessing the services which are locked for the user credentials. Access control can also be defined as a way to restrict access by the means of virtual and physical way to a system. In language of computers, access control is a mechanism by which either users are restricted or granted permission for the access of information and resources.

RFID – Better solution than optical technology

What is RFID?

Radio-Frequency Identification or RFID are related to small electronic devices that are comprises of an antenna and a tiny chip which in a combined form are known as RFID tag or RFID transponder. RFID devises perform the same action as performed by a magnetic strip or a bar code on the back of debit or credit cards. The small chip offers specific identifier for the object. Similar to bar code and magnetic strips, RFID cards are also scanned for identification purpose and retrieving information.

How RFID devices works?

RFID devices uses radio waves signals to recognize objects and people. For identification purpose the microchip has a serial number that recognize objects and people. The antenna supports the chip to transfer the identification codes to a proximity reader. After that the proximity reader further transform the radio waves which were reflected back from the RFID transponder into digital codes that are then transformed to the system which finally use them.

RFID The Right Way

For companies, adopting RFID is a major expense. But if they don't take action, it could affect their business.

It's not so much they don't want to run the operation. It's that they didn't want to have to deal with the potential compatibility and integration issues that existed before our RFID in a Box offering. We solved that issue and augmented it with a services team that was able to handle everything from the challenges with physics to the details of integration into our clients' existing applications. We are able to allow the clients to take on as much of the project burden as they would like.

From an industry standpoint, those that have higher-value items stand the most to gain, such as those companies that are in electronics and high tech, pharmaceuticals and even digital media. These products also have a short selling life, since customers always want the latest and greatest version. That means keeping a high in-stock ration with less inventory in the supply chain. RFID is a

Proximity Key Fobs – Easy way of locking and unlocking the car

About Proximity Key Fobs

Simply key fobs, remotes key fobs are few other names use for proximity key fobs. A proximity key fob is a small device that is pocket size and highly convenient. Along with contactless technology, it also possess iButton credential feature. Since 1990, proximity key fobs are in the market and these are primarily used for cars for automatically locking and unlocking the car’s doors and also to ignite the engine to start the car. Proximity key fobs are programmed in such a way that it integrate with the individual security measures.

 

Cons of Proximity Key Fobs

Mishandling is the major drawback of using proximity key fobs. In case if it is lost, proximity key fobs replacement cost is much higher than the traditional keys. Not only the cost but its availability is also an issue as these key fobs are only available with the registered and authorized dealers of the car. With the increase use of this technology, higher number of accidental and injuries cases hav

Proximity Key Tag – Pocket Size Device

About Proximity Key Tags

Proximity key tags are like an automotive key which is pocket size and convenient in use. Proximity technology is used in proximity key tags. These are quite flexible and durable and can be attached to a ring very easily. They are strong enough to withstand mishandling and harsh environmental conditions. Like proximity key fobs, they also support keyless entry system in the vehicles. Traditionally proximity key tags were designed to be operated on infrared technology. However today infrared technology has been replaced by radio frequency signals which are also used in RFID. By executing a list of steps, proximity key tags can be self-programmed.

 Benefits of Proximity Key Tags

For those who can’t remember codes, passwords or who access systems very rarely, proximity key tabs are a boon for them. Proximity key tags are used for many reasons such as to facilitate and monitor parking system, employee identification, in buildings and condominium, for setting up

Proximity Reader – Control an electronic lock

About Proximity Reader

Proximity Reader is a device that makes use of access control system to keep a check on an electronic lock. The proximity reader produces and transmits radio signals like RFID devices with a low frequency that is recognized by a proximity card, which in turn generate access code which is transferred to the central system to check and control the access mechanism.

How does it operate?

Proximity reader is used for granting or restricting both physical and logical access control by the means of proximity cards. Low frequency radio signals are emitted by the proximity reader that are absorbed by the proximity or smart cards. When the smart cards are brought closer or in the read range of the proximity reader, the radio signals transmitted by the reader get absorbed in the coiled antenna inserted in the card. Once the antenna absorbed the signals, it gets powered and it transfers the energy to the microchip placed in the card. Once the microchip gets activated, it

Big Brother at the supermarket till?

Just a harmless extension of the well-known barcode, or a sinister tracking device designed to monitor the movements and habits of consumers?

The arguments around radio frequency ID (RFID) tags are heating up, with news that an American civil liberties organisation wants a boycott of Tesco over its use of the tags.

Tesco says it is only using RFID tags on DVDs and CDs at its Extra superstore in Leicester to help its distribution process and to "improve availability for customers".

But those opposed to it insist the technology - which allows products to be tracked via radio waves - is a device to spy on customers.

 

Trial extension?

RFID tags in products, and on "smart" shelves, are able to tally the shelves' contents continually, and make more precise requests for inventory from suppliers.

 

 

In California, state Senator Debra Bowen has introduced a bill to keep data from RFID tags separate from consumers' personal information.

But, according to Tesco: "The impact to the sup
