Privacy/ Legislation

Guest blog: RFID & Privacy

This week’s guest blog post is provided by Joe Pleshek, CEO at Terso Solutions. I was somewhat surprised by the amount of negative publicity generated this fall by the plan to use RFID in schools in San Antonio, Tex. Looking back, the decision to deploy RFID in the Northside Independent School District wasn’t thoroughly vetted. [...]

New video: Retailers are not using RFID to scan your underwear!

As RFID becomes more  embedded into the every day lifestyles of consumers, it seems like privacy concerns about the technology have subsided. Yet, it’s important for retailers and other users of RFID to continue to educate consumers about the role of RFID. In a humorous attempt to spread the word that retailers don’t use RFID [...]

RFID: Retailers are not scanning your underwear!

It’s always fun to insert a little humor into RFID when it comes to privacy concerns. That’s exactly what Nordic ID has done in a video it produced that addresses RFID and privacy, and how RFID is already embedded into the daily lifestyles of many consumers, including those who shop at retail outlets. Click on [...]

Researcher identifies solution for credit card fraud

As RFID-enabled credit cards become more common, so do concerns about skimming, a process that allows unauthorized users to gain access to cards, often by scanning the card with a portable handheld reader. A University of Pittsburgh researcher thinks he has a solution to the problem. Marlin Mickle, a professor of engineering and executive director [...]

“Occupy RFID” pulls up stakes

Consumer sentiment is changing rapidly when it comes to RFID technology and the “big brother is watching” reputation the technology once carried. At last week’s RFID Forum at the University of Arkansas there was little discussion about privacy issues and negative feedback from customers as retailers roll out item level tagging en masse. The VICS [...]

RFID Arena addresses RFID and privacy

There is some interesting dialogue occurring about privacy issues over on the RFID Arena blog page. Mirva Saarijärvi of Nordic ID has posted  some interesting content on the issue surrounding privacy and RFID, as its use spreads not only in retail, but in government (passports), manufacturing, transportation and other sectors. The piece also looks at [...]

TheStreet: Wal-Mart item-level tagging doesn’t represent an invasion of privacy – or does it?

I’m a firm believer that privacy concerns about RFID are fading as the benefits of the technology become more apparent to consumers. While there is still a ways to go on that subject, a recent poll by TheStreet suggests that consumers are not concerned about privacy invasions from RFID – although only by a small [...]

Verayo, a San Jose, Calif.-based provider of security and authentication solutions, today unveiled the Vera M4H, the first chip of its new product family. The new tag will [...]

More silly RFID legislation – this time from Virginia

It’s too bad that state legislators continue to waste their time and energy on legislation that prohibits the forced injection of RFID chips into humans. Wednesday’s Washington Post carried a story about legislation in Virginia that would prohibit unwanted injection of RFID tags. Seriously, do the pols in Virginia really think that’s going to happen? [...]

RFID industry needs to react to privacy and security issues

As legislation limiting the use of RFID heats up on the state level, it’s time to ramp up educational efforts and for somebody to take the lead in the fight to limit the misinformation floating around regarding privacy and security issues.
