RFID hacking

This talk will elaborate on the security and social aspects of RFID technology. We will talk about our projects of the past year, including the FIFA World Cup tickets.

This talk will be about some of the hacking related things (technological and social) that you can do with RFID technology.

Topics will include: + electronic passports + Mifare cryptography (maybe even some reverse engineering results) + tickets for the FIFA World Cup (ca. 15 min)

In this part of the talk, we will show the first real world mass application of RFID-technology at the 2006 FIFA soccer world cup. Some valid tickets are shown, including their data and a look at the payload. After that, we will report a simple and unsuccessful hacking-attempt, where one valid ticket was copied. The lecture is accompanied by pictures of some stadium-entrances to examine FIFA security and ticket manipulation.
