'When demonstrating FareBot, many people are surprised to learn that much of the data on their ORCA card is not encrypted or protected. This fact is published by ORCA, but is not commonly known and may be of concern to some people who would rather not broadcast where they’ve been to anyone who can brush against the outside of their wallet. Transit agencies across the board should do a better job explaining to riders how the cards work and what the privacy implications are.' (via Boing Boing)

as predicted: 'Zipping past Fisherman's Wharf, Chris Paget's scanner downloaded to his laptop the unique serial numbers of two pedestrians' electronic U.S. passport cards embedded with radio frequency identification, or RFID, tags. Within an hour, he'd "skimmed" four more of the new, microchipped PASS cards from a distance of 20 feet.'

hacker group THC release an RFID-passport cloning/modification tool, noting that e-Passports are fundamentally insecure due to their trust of self-signed certificates. Also raises the Smart-IED attack danger: 'A Smart-IED waits until a specific person passes by before detonating or let's say until there are more than 10 americans in the room.'

a fantastic prez by 3 MIT students working under Ron Rivest, successfully hacking the Boston subway system's stored-value magstripe cards and MIFARE Classic RFID cards; really fantastic walkthrough of the process. I'm glad to see that my smartcard work on other systems a few years back would have defeated many of these attacks ;)

maliciously-formatted data in an e-passport's RFID tag can crash border passport scanning systems, with a possibility of being able to inject code. This right here is why sometimes too much data interchange can be a bad thing for security... brilliant
