RFID Guardian(2)

unified platform for RFID security and privacy administration

The RFID Guardian is a battery-powered device that represents the first-ever unified 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.

The RFID Guardian Project is focused upon providing security and privacy in Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) systems. The goals of the project are to:

  • Investigate the security and privacy threats faced by RFID systems
  • Design and implement real solutions against these threats
  • Investigate the associated technological and legal issues
