RFID Guardian[RFID Guardian Quick Start Action -- concluded on 2009/04/01]
This Project intends to accelerate hardware prototyping of the RFID Guardian Project. All people getting in touch with the RFID technology, i.e. buyers and users of virtually any goods sold, shall have means to manage the information which is sampled and uncontrollably transmitted by the RFID chips.
The RFID Guardian is a battery-powered device that represents the first-ever unied platform for RFID security and privacy administration. The RFID Guardian acts as an "RFID Firewall", enabling individuals to monitor and control access to their RFID tags by combining a standard-issue RFID reader with unique RFID tag emulation capabilities. Additionally, the RFID Guardian is useful as an RFID security diagnostic and auditing tool.
This "RFID Guardian Quick Start Action" project is intended to bootstrap the larger RFID Guardian project. It is also intended to place the Quick Start Action in a larger context, and in this helping to transform the concept of the RFID Guardian into a commercial open-source hardware product.
