RFID stands for Radio Frequency IDentification. It typically applies to a technology that uses radio waves to automatically identify people or objects.  While there are various ways to identify, the most common is to store a serial number that represents a person or object identity and possibly other information, on a microchip that is attached to an antenna. Collectively the microchip and antenna represent a RFID transponder or an RFID tag. The antenna gives the chip ability to transmit identity information to a RFID reader. Then the RFID reader converts the radio waves into digital information that can then be passed to the computer for usage. RFID has been around since the 1970s. Since the radio waves from the low end of the electromagnetic spectrum, waves are safe as  radio waves from a car radio.

The evidence of such stuff is easy or not. The display of the "About" is sometimes enough but for some software the evidence is not so easy.
  
RFID and Bar codes are different technologies and have different applications.  The big difference between the two is bar codes are line-of-sight technology. A scanner requires a bar code be brought towards a scanner in order for it to be read. RFID on the other hand, doesn’t require line of sight. RFID tags can be read as long as they are within range of a RFID reader. If a label is somehow removed or damaged there is no way to scan the item.

May I propose we open a new section to address such topics?
  
Currently many forms and sizes such as personal items, services, and products use RFID. Currently in the United States, most public transportation such as trains, buses, and restaurants such as Mcdonald's all carry RFID receptacles that allow credit card transactions using MasterCard's PayPass. MasterCard PayPass is the payment feature that can be added to any MasterCard payment account to enable payments with a simple tap. PayPass is flexible enough that it can be built into cards or other devices such as key fobs, and can be used in markets that primarily issue smart cards or those that primarily issue magnetic stripe cards.

InfoSync reported that, Motorola and MasterCard are conducting field tests of new mobile phones that include Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) chips embedded in them as part of a cashless payment system dubbed PayPass. The phones will be equipped with Near Field Communication (NFC) systems, which will allow them to communicate with nearby readers to, for instance, pay for small purchases or tickets for transit or events simply by passing their phone close to a reader.

Once the phone and account has been identified by the RFID tag, the user's MasterCard account will be billed automatically by the network for the appropriate amount. MasterCard also sees potential for the phones as contactless readers, which it claims opens the door for "a variety of marketing and promotional applications", on which the company did not elaborate further.
 
  
The PayPass trials will be run by the end of the 2006 at various locations in the United States.

I am setting up a global directory of computer forensics analysts, and am looking for feedback to the idea. Although the directory is in the UK, I want it to be global. Any thoughts, please put them on Computer Forensics [http://www.computer-forensics.co.uk] in the forums section. Thanks and regards, Simon

Some times i found useful to know which files are changed on boot time of OS or on poweroff.  For example to know what happened with OS ( Windows or Linux or ... ) what files to exclude or include by investigation. So i started collect this information with qemu and mactime. I think this wiki is the best place to post it,  what do you think haw should i name it and the category? Also i will thankful if some one can correct my English.

I've made a start on trying to organize the Anti-Forensics information creating a number of sections including Category:Anti-Forensics.  I created a category for Category:Anti-Forensics Tools(uppercase) with out realising there was already a Category:Anti-forensics tools (lowercase).  Is there any standardization on whether page titles should be upper or lower case? I would have though upper case being the better option...

Revision as of 05:48, 13 March 2009

what about the validation of legal/illegal licenses of commercial software?

I'm sometimes requested by the Courts to process with investigations in order to detect is a company is using software (e.g. AutoCad, MS Office, Adobe) with licenses or not. The evidence of such stuff is easy or not. The display of the "About" is sometimes enough but for some software the evidence is not so easy.

May I propose we open a new section to address such topics?

What do you think? --Chuv 04:16, 19 July 2007 (PDT)

Sounds like a good idea. How about How to determine if software is legally licensed? It should probably go in the Category:Howtos. Jessek 16:11, 19 July 2007 (PDT)


Global Directory of Analysts

I am setting up a global directory of computer forensics analysts, and am looking for feedback to the idea. Although the directory is in the UK, I want it to be global. Any thoughts, please put them on Computer Forensics [1] in the forums section. Thanks and regards, Simon
