Cloning Passports & ID cards is Childs Play

Using simple techniques that have been around for decades and remarkably similar to those which I used back in my DTH hacking days, this man shows how incredibly simple it is to scan and harvest data from RFID devices in the wild and how unimaginably inept the implementation of the whole thing is from the outset.

Pip pip

DTH. Satellite TV. I used to belong to a group that hacked encrypted Sat TV channels by logging the bit stream and cracking the decryption key by hashing the cipher text and the plain text or sometimes as with SECA for example making the smart cards disgorge their contents by applying certain macros.

Sounds classy but believe me it ain't rocket science. To this day there is not one such protocol that has not been utterly compromised.
