Access management


Access control for buildings or lockers is a largely accepted application using RFID. Typically for this purpose so called proximity cards containing a passive RFID tag from various manufacturers are used. In many cases the RFID signal of proximity cards seems to be not encrypted ore secured by other measures. Cloning of proximity cards thus seems to be possible easily (Garfinkel, Rosenberg 2006: 291).

Other systems e.g., remote door openers for cars or vehicle immobilisers use active and passive RFID tags. Today the transmitted signals are typically encrypted, though encryption in some cases has obvious weaknesses (Bono et al. 2005).
