Re: RFID Chips

mcafee says the website is dodgy and wont let me visit it .....
I'm a guessing its the story about how the yanks were using a special powder to remotely track money they deliberately paid to various parties in order to bomb the final destination into oblivion ....
of course its not limited purely to money tracking they can do it for everything but the process is expensive and they don't do it willy nilly yet, of course as its use spreads it will become a lot cheaper and then they will use it on everything...

Soon it will be chips with everything,

Think of the possibilities of this technology. It will certainly have the personal privacy brigade up in arms. In London the Oyster card works on similar ideas doesn't it Undecided

Re: RFID Chips

The Oyster Card transmits a unique serial number when interrogated by suitable equipment. "They" use this to associate your mobile phone with its GPS and unique serial number which can then be used to track you by triangulation between Mobile base stations and satellite. Within major cities in the UK and at key points such as rail stations, supermarkets, motorway service stations, banks and public buildings "they" use facial recognition CCTV to tie you to your mobile phone and Oyster Card. "They" of course tie in your bank account details to your mobile phone and Oyster Card. These details including mobile phone location are tied into your car's registration mark by ANPR cameras located at key points around the country. All of your travel is tracked and recorded at a massive database centre.
Your bank account and loyalty cards (such as Nectar) are used by "them" to track your spending patterns. Any unusual spending or transactions with suspicious organisations raise an alert which is logged for subsequent investigation. The use of cash payment in large sums are treated as suspicious and are reported by estate agents, car dealerships, solicitors and Banks. The major ISPs now required by law to track your Internet usage for consequent reporting to security services.
Who needs the effort of RFID chips.

Re: RFID Chips

and yet you just described largely how RFID is already in every walk of life, indeed only the facial recognition system isn't directly part of RFID and yet as you describe things its certainly tied to it...
RFID personal chips will be given out by banks in the near future as a matter of course when ever you ask for a credit card (already in large numbers there given out a microchips in the USA) similarly a lot of businesses use RFID chips in there employee's to ensure only those allowed enter different sectors, of course you can take someone else's chip but you also need there bio tags to open the doors (iris/palm/fingerprint etc)
it wont be long before everything in your life is "coded" to your chip(s) and keys/cards/cash/ are all things of distant memory certainly it will happen within the next 20 years faster if there is some form of global conflict that drives the need for instant positive identification

Re: RFID Chips

The previous Gov't tried to smart chip everyone with the National Id Card as a panic measure when they realised they'd lost control of immigration.
Want Social Benefits payment? - Card please...
Want to buy fuel? - Card please ...
Want to checkout at supermarket? - Card please ...
edit..
Want to pay in Bank Notes? ... Sorry sir those notes are not registered to your card ...

Re: RFID Chips

they should of done it via inserted id chips and nobody would of batted an eyelid about it if it was spun properly as an anti fraud measure, it would of saved the treasury more than 1 billion a year by stopping all the fraud etc
of course even the privacy lobby were actually pro id cards because it meant less other things instead one of the immigration charities pressurised some lobbyists to prevent it from coming into force back in 2002.

Re: RFID Chips

We use RFID at work a lot from gaining access into & out of carpark / building to paying for things in cashless canteen & vending machines.
It also helped get one employee the sack for telling lies about how a piece of equipment got badly damaged.
RFID on the forklift stores the last 40 operator log on's with time & date, using that info helped security trace what happened on the CCTV system & caught the person in the act  Lips are sealed
Another good thing about RFID keyfob system we use is if a keyfob gets lost / stolen it can be deactivated in seconds so it's then useless OR if you find a set of key's someones lost, security can read the keyfob info, find out who they belong to & return them.
