Tinfoil tests

By davebirch posted Dec 11 2006 at 10:53 AM

[Dave Birch] You may remember the DIFRWear shielded wallets and passports that we were talking about a couple of weeks ago.  I thought people might be interested to know that they arrived, and they're very nice.  But do they work?  In other words, if you put a passive ISO 14443 card or passport inside, do they stop terminals from seeing them?

Answer, yes they do.  And here's a short video of Stuart Fiske testing them in our office...


So if know someone who is worried about their new contactless passport being scanned for nefarious purposes, the ideal Xmas present is right here.

My opinions are my own (I think) and are presented solely in my capacity as an interested member of the general public.
