which is currently in the pilot phase.
Back in April, the research group was offset by Bart Jacobs, the Dutch Ministry of the Interior in turmoil. You cracked the Mifare smart cards which regulates access to government buildings in Holland. "Currently, we replace the access cards of 120,000 officials," confirmed a spokesman for the Interior Ministry against timesonline.co.uk. A one-billion-euro project to payment arrangements for public transport in the style of the London Oyster card was put on hold.
The "ethical hackers" out of the ivory tower benützten a normal laptop for their successful attacks on rfid inlay. From a card reader, as they stand around for hundreds of public space, the cryptographic key is read and loaded onto the computer with a scanner device. In a second step, the map of a passer is read with a portable reader. The data also end up on the computer and can be written with the encryption code via writing instrument on blank cards. In this way, hackers could make as many copies of metro subscriptions or access cards to government buildings of the sensitive type. "On a technical level, there are currently no countermeasures", researcher Bart Jacobs told timesonline.co.uk.
Individuals who cross the lake by ferry between Horgen and miles, can pay the ferry pass map their journey since January 1. The cards contain an contactless cards that records the use of the card. Replace the old Löchlikarten. Hans Isler, CEO of Zurich-ferry Horgen-mile AG is satisfied. "There are still more than 10,000 cards in circulation, which exceeded our expectations," says Isler. About the huge demand he is surprised: "We have more individual clients than we anticipated before the introduction," he says. So the company had twice already maps the manufacturer

But now opening up for the Near Field Communication new possibilities. "For a year or two mobile phones are equipped as standard with anRFID CARD," explains Roland Hunkeler, the product manager access of Siemens Switzerland AG. His company is therefore to use the smartphone for access control. "Via a corresponding card or badge that is kept to a reader, there is the access control for a long time on this route," says Hunkeler. Used here are the two standards Mifare or Legic. Therefore, the use of mobile phones in this area mean in principle only a change of the medium by another chip carrier will used.
It started the whole thing with a project at the University of Applied Sciences Northwestern Switzerland: rfid inlayTwo students have developed under the guidance of Roland Hunkeler a Siemens-app which makes use of the mobile phone as a possible key card. "We wanted to test whether such applications are ever programmed on the phone and how quickly they respond." These prototypes have been internally tested at Siemens: Seven doors were equipped with appropriate readers, and in 50 persons the app has been downloaded to your mobile. The mobile phone is now held instead of acombo cards card to the reader, which then unlocks the door. "The distance is still not exceed 4 cm," says Hunkeler. "Otherwise, would be necessary for physical reasons much larger antennas."
After this field trial is successful, we started to build a partnership with Swisscom to implement the Near Field Communication for access via mobile phone range. "For our test run we loaded the access key in each case using a wired connection to your mobile. But such a solution would obviously not fit for the market, "says Hunkeler on. For the highlight of the whole lies in the fact that access rights "over the air" to send to your mobile phone. "For example, if a service technician will have access to a building, because there he has to fix something, then he calls to a central point, which the right of access sending it directly to the phone. Without that somewhere he must pick a card. "
