02/02/2006 Archived Entry: "VeriChip RFID hacked"
A tip of the hat to Claire Wolfe for this item: the VeriChip RFID chip can be easily cloned.
My reaction: I'm glad I finally bought a logic analyzer. I expect that before long, logic analyzers, oscilloscopes, signal generators, and other tools of the electronics trade are going to be strictly licensed, just to prevent this kind of thing from happening...the typical thoughtless, pointless, ineffective, reflexive government response. A better idea would be to design a more secure RFID system, and limit its use to non-critical functions. A still better idea would be to give up on this RFID nonsense entirely. —brad
