Are your cards secure?
Digital technology is widely used in contactless smartcards to make payments,access control and identity verification convenient and quick.unfortunately contactless smartcards also make digital pickpocketint,identity theft and unauthorised data tracking convenient and quick,smarcards that use contactless RFID technology can be easily compromised but there are simple solutions available ot protect your valuable card data.
What is RFID?
RFID stands for radio frequency identification.basically RFID is a technology that enables the wireless transmission of electronic data using radio waves from an RFID device to an RFID chip,smartcards embedded with RFID chips allow for contactless transactions,RFID technology has been around for a quiet some time,what’s new is it’s widespread use in Australla for credit cards,public transport cards and building access cards.this is due to user convenience like speed and online management as well as added provider benefits like data tracking.
Access cards act as keys to grant secure access to buliding doors,gates and elevators and when embedded with RFID can be used to track user movements for security purposes,contactless smartcards are also used for event ticketing and at snow resorts to access chairlifts and monitor guest flow,common security card providers in Australia are MIFARE,HID and kaba legic
Identity cards embedded with RFID chips are used by private organisations,universities and in some official identity cards overseas,Australian identity cards and drivers licenses do not currently have RFID capability but Australian passports have had RFID chips embedded in them since 2005.
Which cards use RFID?
Bank cards embedded with RFID chips are now commonly used in Australia for contactless payments through wave or tap and go terminals,tap and go or wave and go enabled credit cards,debit cards and prepaid charge cards are used in Australia,these include all mastercard paypass and Visa paywave cards.
Public transport cards with RFID provide convenient access to public transport and can be used to compile data for transport system efficiency,in Australia these include the new opal and Sydney,myki in Victoria,go card in Southeast Queensland,Metrocard in Adelaide,SmartRider in Perth,Myway in Canberra,Greencard in Hobart and a range of public transport contactless smartcards from private operaters.
Why is this a concern?
Monble phones can be used to read data on contactless smartcards with many free apps available for download on Google Play.standard smartphones with near Field Communication(NFC) have the ablility to do this,Most smartcards are encrypted so not all data can be accessed,Most sophisticated RFID devices can read card data and detect smartcards from larger distances and are widely available to purchase online.
The risk of digital pickpocketing,unauthorised access to personal informmation and data tracking of individual card movements will increase as we incorporate electronic technologies into everyday lives.
Software encryption techniques can make it more time consuming for digital thiefs to access and use your information but do not stop unauthorised organisations from identifying your card data and tracking individual movement.However,hardware solutions are now available to protect your private card data and give you peace of mind.
