Open Source RFID Development
Eric Preston (firstname.lastname@example.org)
The ubiquity of radio frequency identification (RFID) grows every year. In this past year or so, RFID has be introduced in popular payment systems (credit cards) and in the transport system in Montreal (transport card). These systems are examples of passive RFID. Active RFID technologies can be used for the tracking of animals, vehicles, and even conference attendees!
Aside from the general public, the skilled technology professional still knows very little about this technology despite its ever growing presence in our daily lives. We will give the participants an overview of both active and passive RFID technologies as well as offer insight into some of the recent events in the world of passive RFID security. We will look at the many open source tools that are available to explore this ever growing field.
The open source hardware and software that will be discussed, demonstrated, praised and ridiculed will include but not limited to the openpcd, openpicc, librfid, libmrtd, proxmark, openbeacon and openamd projects.
