Passport Encryption standard cracked in 2 hours

Monday, February 6 2006

"One big hit to the public confidence in RFID has come from the Netherlands, where a security firm partnered with a TV program to successfully decrypt a Dutch-prototype RFID passport.

In just two hours, officials from Riscure and "Nieuwslicht" intercepted, stored, and cracked the password encrypted on an RFID-tagged passport. The result was the virtual "undressing" of the passport, allowing the "hackers" access to the digitized fingerprint, the photograph, and all other encrypted and plain text data on the passport."
