RFID Passports

It was announced last week that “passport cards that Americans can use to travel to other nearby countries will have a technology that allows information on the card to be read from a distance.” Doesn’t it make you feel warmy, fuzzy and safe that your Identity can be read without your permission by anyone within 20 feet? I think I’d rather stand in line a bit longer.

    In that case, you may want to invest in the entirely reasonably-priced Faraday wallet from someone like http://www.difrwear.com/

    Obviously, it’s not easy for me to conduct a reilable test of how good they are at shielding an RFID-tagged passport, but I tested it with a badge-lock proximity card and reader, and was very impressed.
