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.

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.

Currently many forms and sizes such as personal items, services, and products use RFID worldwide. 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.

The Defense Cyber Crime Center, or DC3, is a Department of Defense organization run by the Air Force Office of Special Investigations. The center consists of four divisions:

Events

The DC3 sponsors an annual conference, the DoD Cybercrime Conference. The last conference was held in January 2007 in St. Louis, MO.

In 2006 the DC3 ran a Digital Forensics Challenge. At the 2007 DoD Cybercrime conference, the DC3 announced plans to make the challenge an annual event.

History

The DC3 was formed in 2001 when the newly created DCCI was merged with the existing DCFL and DCITA (at the time called the Defense Computer Investigations Training Program (DCITP).
