RFID Passport Cracked in the UK

This seems to be a never ending saga. A security expert in the UK cracked an RFID passport using easily available tools, information gathered from Google and a home brew program he wrote in Python.

An article appeared yesterday in Computer World and also in the Daily Mail in London.

Bruce Schneier has blogged about this many times, as well. He had a post specifically about the UK and another about RFID passports in the US.

I also wrote a story for SearchSecurity in November about RFID security.
