Its no coincidence that even big events like London fashion week and Glastonbury are beginning to adopt the powerful uses of RFID. 

With RFID helping embrace and tighten security teams, technology has only sped up the interest of hosting these huge events. 

So how can RFID help security? 

One of the biggest problems with large events in the past - have been counterfeit tickets. If you go to any event, or any festivals, you'll see a mass of people outside looking to see off counterfeit tickets for knock down prices. Especially with desperate festival goers, these people usually make a killing. 

A new RFID system allows tickets to embed a secure database which features tiny RFID chips which make forging these practically impossible. 

Not only this, but the RFID tags give the managers full control over who is where, and help monitor attendance flow. Obviously we are against mass surveillance - but when it seems like RFID can do a good cause we're all for it. 

There are some bizarre people in the world today. 

The US Presidential candidate, and White House hopeful, Zoltan Istvan has made headlines this week for implanting RFID chips into his hands. 

Istvan, who is the leader of the Transhumanist Party, celebrates the coming up of it's 1 year of existence by performing scientific surgery to raise awareness for tech improving lives. 

And whilst we are with Istvan, is his beliefs that one day - humans will be part human part robot - as technology improves, we believe that this extreme move was partly down to press release efforts in the built up to the election. 

Istvan doesn't need to worry about losing his car keys - as he can open doors with a wave of his hand! 

If you're a Malaysian citizen who drives - your privacy when on the roads is about to be worsened. 

The Malaysian Government have just announced plans to introduce a scheme which sees all road vehicles plastered with a special RFID tax sticker. 

While these stickers have the supposed intention of deterring car thieves, monitoring road jams, and controlling road networks - we at Wallet Wall don't see it as much. 

With an untested encryption system, we believe that citizens of Malaysia are far worse - as privacy concerns mount. This would equate to anyone with an RFID reader monitoring who is driving what vehicle - and from afar. 

Now this system isn't yet to take full effect until 2018 - but the Government have plans to push out a pilot test program, which starts as early as next month. Happy days! 

Oh, and if you're planning to rip the sticker off, don't. They're programmed to transmit a warning if it's tampered with, and shatter. 

 

Tech giant Intel, is working with CSIRO to discover reasons on the widespread disappearance of millions of bees in Australia. 

They are doing this by installing trackable RFID tags on their backs. 

This study is important because approximately 33% of all human food sources are pollinated by honey bees - meaning a continuing disappearance may change the way humans eat in the future. 

Intel has made its Edison wearables computing platform available to track the movements of the honey bees which are able to monitor the environments that the bees find themselves in. They'll then be able to use this data to make large scale decisions on why bees decide to migrate. 

"We're now able to make an appropriate level of capacity at an appropriate cost to actually take our transistors into places beyond the PC and servers that we're typically used to dealing with," said David Mellers, enterprise sales director for Intel ANZ.

The RFID tag itself is a masterpiece, a tiny 2.5x2.5x0.4mm in size, and weighing less than 5.4mg - the tags are super glued to the back of the honey bees. 

The tags will allow researchers to look at many differing factors including stress levels in accordance to diseases, pollution in the air, water contamination, as well as extreme weather - to see analyse the bees ability to pollinate. 

"The sensors, working in partnership with Intel software, operate in a similar way to an aeroplane's black box flight recorder in that they provide us with vital information about what stress factors impact bee health."

The DEF CON security event in Las Vegas last weekend saw Francis Brown, partner at security firm BishopFox gave a great speech called 'RFID Hacking: Live Free or RFID Hard'. Brown talked about weaknesses in RFID technology at the Black Hat USA Conference in 2013 where he touched upon aspects such as low frequency RFID and the dangers involved.

However this year he talked about the total opposite, in high frequency RFID often found in credit cards and passports, which can be blocked by our Wallet Wall product.  

"Most people when they think of RFID hacking are typically not the things they really need to worry about," Brown said. "Most people think of RFID in credit cards and mobile payments, and those really aren't huge risks."

RFID Cloning Weaknesses

Brown mentions that the dangers revolve around malicious strong high distance readers which can read and then clone an entry card and then gain access to physical hardware. 

Our top tip is to always carry your entry card in your Wallet Wall if you work in relevant sectors, in order to prevent such a thing happening.

"Basically what the system does is it checks your RFID card information to see if you belong in the building, and then it checks to see if the finger you are using is the same fingerprint that is stored on the card," Brown explained. "So if I stole your card, I'd make a copy of your card, then I'd switch out your fingerprint with my fingerprint, and then the system would just verify my fingerprint with the stolen copied card."

 

The NFL has announced a new partnership with Zebra Technologies, a specialist in digital and wearable technology, to test RFID chips in football players shoulder pads. 

The tests will collect data on player individual skill levels, such as how fast certain players are, and this information is to be made interactively available to viewers at home. 

So next time you're using the NFL app, you can check the 'Next Gen Stats' option which should display player speeds for all your fantasy league glory. 

Within the app, the NFL hopes to personalize fans experiences durig game time as well as making for a more engaging and more fulfilling game experience. 

"We will tie Next Gen Stats into every replay that comes into the Xbox,"said Todd Stevens, executive producer at Microsoft. "Replays like a one-yard touchdown run, you don't really need Next Gen Stats. But some of these plays, like a long pass play, are truly spectacular. We wanted to give them a bit of special sauce."

The NFL has previously made certain statistics publicly available, but this will be the first time where fans are able to see this data anywhere and anytime.

How Wallet Wall Works

July 13, 2015

RFID wallets are designed to block transmission of data to and from your credit cards and other IDs.

Wallet Wall works because RFID is highly susceptible to interference from surrounding objects. RFID signals can easily be scrambled by either metal or water. And since a water-lined wallet is pretty impractical, RFID wallets are lined with a thin and flexible layer of metal that blocks signals.

Which Wallet Wall is for you?

Wallet Wall products look like any other wallet, purse or cardholder. Because lots of people want to protect themselves against data theft, there’s a wide range of RFID wallets available in many different styles. They aren’t any more expensive than standard wallets, either.
