Proximity cards under the magnifying glass

RFID technology is all around us. And this is impossible to escape from that. You use proximity cards in the daily basis – when you do shopping, when you enter the office or even by using city cards for buses or trams instead of having the regular tickets. But have you ever wondered how safe is this? Is there any way to steal the data from your cards?

During this presentation I will show which types of cards use companies as the Access Control System and how to hack those cards. How badly protected are the city cards and how easy is to extend validity of them. Also, I will show you that most of the hotel cards are easy to hack.

The most exciting tasks that he can imagine is doing the reverse engineering of the binaries.
