Tracking tags aiding elderly care

December 16, 2018 by Jason Bourne  

We have talked a lot about Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) tags in the past.

They can be placed on stock in a supermarket, or items in the postal system, and you can keep tabs on them because of the tiny little radio transmitters and receivers.

And now, some researchers at Intel are using RFID to track people.

For many, a population of tagged and tracked citizens is the stuff that kept Orwell up all night, but the research here has noble intentions.

The system is dubbed Technology for Long Term Care (TLC), and aims to help you keep an eye on your elderly parents without the need to visit them every day.

One way of doing this is to see what the parent does around their home throughout the day, by tracking which household objects they use.

In a mock-up apartment, each object is fitted with a cheap RFID tag. "Mum" or "Dad" wear a special wrist strap which can detect which tags it is closest to.

RFID tags could help spot people who are struggling to live alone

By reporting what objects the parent is interacting with throughout the day, and for how long, the researchers say they can build up a pretty good picture of what they are doing.

Time spent with bathroom items indicates they are probably washing, while time spent with kitchen equipment means they are probably eating okay.

You can receive information about their movements over the internet, but can you be sure of what the person is doing?

 

"The state of the art right now is that you go to your mom's place and spend as much time as you need to figure out what's going on," says Intel researcher Matthai Philipose.

"If you spend an hour or two a week you've still got under 5% knowledge of what's going on.

"So an 85% accurate system like this still gives a huge improvement over the state of the art."

But he also says installing a webcam could intrude on the person's privacy and there is also the question of what to with the huge amounts of data the camera produces.

"If you want to know that something's happening in Mom's house using the camera, you have to sit there watching the video all the time," Mr Philipose adds.

"We've been pursuing what we call witness snippets. The sensor system in this case guesses that your Mom's taking her medication, but because you want to be really sure about that, it takes out just the three or four seconds of Mom taking her medication and shows just that part to you."

 

Tracking concerns

It has been argued that every successful deployment of RFID takes us closer to a world where tracking is the norm. But, is it possible to maintain our privacy in such a future?

In the Paul Allen Computer Labs at the University of Washington, steps are being taken to keep our personal information private.

Wearing an RFID badge, a man walks the four floors near his office and every few metres he passes one of the specially installed RFID sensors.

Each time a sensor pings his badge, the event shows up on the map, and his location is recorded.

 

His team has tagged many of their personal items, and specially written software produces lists of data about where and when each tag is spotted.

But how do you give yourself, and your friends, useful information about your location and that of your belongings, without invading the privacy of those who may be with you?

"One interesting and very useful application of RFID is to be able to track our belongings. So if I lend my book to somebody and later I need it, I would like to be able to see where my book is so I can go back and get it," says Assistant Professor Magdalena Balazinska.

"The problem is that by tagging my belongings and being able to see the location at any time, I can track people because I can lend them a tagged item and see that person's location by asking where that item is," she adds.

 

 

There are various ways to try to protect privacy and the team are working on several applications which allow you access, but not too much access, to all that wealth of information RFID promises.

HID Launches New High-Security, RFID Access Cards to Upgrade Physical Access Control

December 10, 2018 by Jason Bourne  

HID announced the launch of its HID keyfobs HID® 1326 new high-frequency 13.56 MHz access card product line delivering increased security at a much lower cost with the excellent compatibility, service, and quality standards that have made HID card offerings so popular.


Despite the security weaknesses of 125 kHz proximity card systems, adoption of more secure replacements has been hampered by the lack of alternatives that meet all of the customer requirements for such a solution — low cost, seamless support of existing systems, easy migration, simple ordering and enrollment of cards, and a high level of security certified by independent third-party organizations. The HID keyfobs line meets all of these requirements and delivers high-assurance identity and access card authenticity to both newly deployed and existing physical access control systems.


HID Cards are priced to be significantly less expensive than both proximity and smart card solutions from other vendors. HID is able to provide these substantial cost savings to customers by being the first to utilize the latest ProxCard® ProxCard® ii  technology, specifically developed for physical access cards.


To make ordering as simple as possible, HID keyfobs come in just two models: 1326 Standard Cards, for new installations, and HID Migration Cards, which include 125 kHz proximity technology that interoperates seamlessly with existing 125 kHz proximity readers. HID Cards further simplify the migration process by supporting the commonly used Wiegand card data formats used on proximity cards today.


In addition to low cost and seamless compatibility with proximity systems, HID Cards feature very high security. The 1326 ProxCard® II platform used in the cards carries the Common Criteria EAL4+ certification, trusted by governments and organizations worldwide as the benchmark in external security validation. This recognizes the robust design and open specification of the platform, and contrasts sharply with alternative solutions that do not carry certifications, do not make their protocols available for review, and lock their customers into proprietary, unscalable security schemes.

 

To simplify the enrollment process, HID also provides the HID Universal Enrollment Station, a USB-connected device that automates the process of reading card numbers and entering them into the physical access control system software. The uTrust TS Universal Enrollment Station is compatible with HID Keyfob.

The basic information of proximity cards

December 3, 2018 by Jason Bourne  

Basically the usage of proximity cardsis made by various companies and the main purpose of using these cards is to keep a check over the physical approach of the employees of the companies. According to this policy each and every one of the employees is granted a proximity card and all the employees are required to produce this card before the card reader. In fact this is the proximity reader which after receiving the information of the employee in the form of ID transfers it to the central computer. Only after that, it is decided whether to allow the person to go inside or not. This method is very sophisticated and well programmed in order to check the entry of people especially in the high security areas. Proximity cards are also known as the prox cards in their short form. This method of entry is concerned with the limited use of integrated circuits which are commonly being used in many places for the maintenance of security. These cards are also referred to as the smart cards.

Using proximity cards

Proximity cards as mentioned before are also known as the smart cards and the basic purpose of using them and allotting them to the employees is to adopt the dual advantage of having two kinds of access controls of systems. These are called as the logical access control and the physical access control for both the smart cards as well as ISO printable cards. Among the various uses of these cards, some important places where the smart cards along with card readersare allocated and fixed are in the enterprises where they provide an access to the computer systems. In addition to this, these systems also find their use in the networking systems and in the resources of organizations. Even some sophisticated organizations having an advanced system of security also adopt the system of ISO printable cards.

Proximity Card Reader

A card reader is a very important device and in fact its function is so important that without its installation the procedure of security checking cannot be completed. The proximity card reader is also sometimes referred to as the proximity reader. Installation of the card readers is not a complicated task. In fact it is a very simple method which adopts a simple procedure and mechanism. Although the installation and functioning of the proximity reader might be simple but the scientific procedure behind all this is quite systematic and involves various steps of the control system. In fact same procedures are used for the reading of smart cards and ISO proximity cards.

Proximity key fobs

The Proximity key fobs are the things which need to be protected in the smart keys or smart cards. In fact these are the security codes or messages which are different for each smart card and should be kept hidden and secret. These key fobs are basically related with the cars and are used by the car drivers when they apply them to lock, unlock and drive the cars. The Proximity key fobs are always kept pocketed while locking and unlocking. In some cases the operating of Proximity key fobs is automatic and does not require manual operation.


Proximity Cards - Contactless Smart Cards

November 25, 2018 by Jason Bourne  

What is a Proximity Card?

A proximity card also known as ‘prox’ cards are smart cards that have a feature of “contactless technology” and so they can be read without the help of a reader device which are required for reading magnetic strip cards such as debit or credit cards. In organizations, proximity cards are used in the form of smart cards to have control on their employees through physical access control system. Every employee is provided with a proximity card, and for entrance in the organizations, employees are required to display the card in front of the proximity card reader. The proximity card reader through radio signals receives ID from the proximity card which the reader further transmit to the main computer. After checking the access database, the system either allow or restrict the entry of the employee.

Types of Proximity Card


Passive proximity cards


Passive proximity cards are identified through radio waves signals transmitted from the proximity card reader. And as these cards have limited range and so in order to be read these cards have to be bring closer to the card reader. These cards are generally used in office buildings for access control doors. These smart cards are also used for public transit, in libraries and in payment system.


Active proximity cards

Active proximity cards are also known as vicinity cards. These cards uses internal lithium battery. Unlike passive proximity cards, these cards have range up to 6 feet or 2 meters. These cards are generally used for automated toll collection. However as they are powered by battery, they are required to be replace within 2 to 7 years.

There are variety of proximity smart cards and proximity key fobs available in the market for gaining physical access such as kantech proximity cards, HID proximity cards, indala proximity card, AWID proximity cards, etc.

 

Advantages of Proximity Cards

Proximity cards are used for dual purpose i.e. to get both physical and logical access control. These cards are used immensely use in organizations to access better and effective security measures. They are useful for checking access for restricted areas such as technology server, networks, etc. in an organization. One of the other usage of low price proximity card is that as audit reports are generated so they are used for marking employee attendance. Another feature of proximity cards are that they can be programmed to be read by multiple readers and thus they provide more flexibility with addition of new proximity readers and access control systems. For logical access control, proximity cards are also used for digital signatures, digital certifications, web authorization, email encryption, etc.

 

Disadvantages of Proximity Cards

 

Although the proximity cards have great benefits, however there are few disadvantages too. There is a greater possibility that these cards can be lost as these are very light weight. Moreover many retail outlets and merchandise using proximity cards for payment transactions. However they find the technology more expensive and thus they charge additional fee from the customer for using the contactless technology.


Kantech Proximity Cards – Passive Proximity Card

November 17, 2018 by Jason Bourne  

What is Kantech Proximity Cards?

As proximity key fobs, proximity key tags and proximity cards, Kantech Proximity Cards make use of proximity technology i.e. for unlocking or accessing an electronic lock they require low-frequency radio signals (RFID) transmitted by a proximity reader.

How do Kantech Proximity Cards operate?

Kantech proximity card functions in the same principle as another proximity card. It makes use of proximity technology wherein the proximity reader transmits low-frequency radio signals which are identified by the antenna placed in the proximity card and the energy generated by the antenna is moved to the microprocessor embedded in a microchip in the card. Once the microchip is powered by the energy transferred by the antenna, it generates a code which is further passed on to the proximity reader which in turn verify the code with the access database of the central system. And once the verification is executed, access is granted.

Features of Kantech Proximity Cards and Reader

Kantech proximity cards and readers provide an efficient access control mechanism. They are easy to install and provides advanced security features. The Kantech proximity cards easily integrate with its access control system including both physical and logical access control system. The proximity readers of Kantech proximity cards or the ioProx cards are attuned with dual programmed proximity cards which are Kantech Extended Secure Format (XSF)) and 26-bit Wiegand. The XSF cards cannot be duplicated as these are encoded with more than four billion codes. Kantech proximity cards are available in various shapes and materials. Kantech proximity cards work on reliable technology that easily integrates with Kantech proximity readers. Kantech proximity cards are flexible and can be easily carried or attach to a key ring, lanyard, or badge clip. Few types of Kantech proximity readers can even be connected to the smartphone non-metallic surface, and few of them can be used for dye sublimation printing. The Kantech proximity readers can be selected on various parameters for the proximity card. Such as by mounting option, in which the proximity reader can be in the form of mullion or a gang box; proximity card compatibility, in which the proximity reader can be either 26-bit Wiegand or XSF, or also by authentication and read range. For both indoor and outdoor usage, the proximity cards are designed as weatherproof to bear the harsh environmental situations.

Benefits of Kantech Proximity cards

Kantech proximity cards use proximity technology. As these cards are cost effective and thus they are chosen as a preferable option for setting up access control mechanism for the organization. They are designed in the format of standard credit cards, and so they can easily be placed in wallet, badge clip, lanyard, etc. Kantech proximity cards are flexible and can be punched in both vertical and horizontal way. These are passive cards and thus does not require any battery for recharging and have lifetime warranty available. Kantech proximity cards are adaptable to any environment as these are weatherproof, compact, flexible, resistant and attractive.

Proximity Key Fobs – Easy way of locking and unlocking the car

November 11, 2018 by Jason Bourne  

About Proximity Key Fobs

Simply key fobs, remotes key fobs are few other names use for proximity key fobs. A proximity key fob is a small device that is pocket size and highly convenient. Along with contactless technology, it also possess iButton credential feature. Since 1990, proximity key fobs are in the market and these are primarily used for cars for automatically locking and unlocking the car’s doors and also to ignite the engine to start the car. Proximity key fobs are programmed in such a way that it integrate with the individual security measures.

 

How does it works?

Locking, unlocking and starting the car without the help of a key is the unique feature of proximity key fobs. An antenna is embedded in the car which transmits radio waves signals that are recognized by the proximity key fobs. Locking and unlocking feature of the car automatically works as soon as the proximity key fobs comes closer to the car. It is so effective that the car doors open by just touching the handle, if the proximity key fobs is around. Not only this, immobilizer can be unlocked through the smart key fobs and the engine can be started without placing the real key in the ignition switch.

However this can only work when the proximity key fobs is available inside the car. From security viewpoint, proximity key fobs are designed in such a way that every time the proximity key fobs absorbed varied radio frequency signals that are transmitted by the embedded antennas in the car and the antennas every time make sure to generate new frequency radio signals.

 

Pros of Proximity Key Fobs

Convenience is the biggest advantage of using proximity key fobs. To access its technology, it is not necessary to even hold the key fobs in your hands. It can even work if it is placed inside a pocket. Now a day’s most of the car manufacturers are focusing on providing proximity key fobs to their customers as thepush-button technique for the ignition is in great demand among the car users. Moreover it protects the vehicles from theft as doors cannot be unlocked without the key fobs. Not only the feature is used in cars, but it supports other function too such as public transit system, payment transaction i.e. cashless vending, and also supports access control mechanism.

 

Cons ofProximity Key Fobs

 

Mishandling is the major drawback of using proximity key fobs. In case if it is lost, proximity key fobsreplacement cost is much higher than the traditional keys. Not only the cost but its availability is also an issue as these key fobs are only available with the registered and authorized dealers of the car. With the increase use of this technology, higher number of accidental and injuries cases have been found, and the worst case could be leakage of carbon monoxide as the car user or driver left the car without checking whether the engine has been shut or not

No building access control card? No problem if you have new tools

November 3, 2018 by Jason Bourne  

RFID card access systems are being used by most companies to let people within their complexes. But over the previous couple of years, researchers have shown how these systems can be easily bypassed.


Francis Brown, a partner at the computer security organization Bishop Fox, has recently been on the forefront of much of the research. In fact, he identified some of his tools and methods being used in the television program Mr. Robot, that can be noted for highly accurate technical detail.


Recently, he's been looking carefully at breaching high- and ultra-high frequency RFID (radio-frequency identification) systems, which are increasingly becoming utilized for physical security systems.

He's due to give a presentation at this year's Def Scam Hacking Conference in Algunas Vegas early next month with a bevy of new and improved software and hardware goodies.


"There are all kinds of areas that folks aren't considering at all that are fresh for exploitation, " this individual said.


Brown said his aim is to make it easier for sexual penetration testers to show how easy it is to clone employee badges, break in the action into buildings and vegetable network backdoors--without needing an electrical engineering degree to decode the vagaries of near-field communication (NFC) and RFID systems.


A few of years ago at the Black Hat convention, Brown showed how it was possible to "weaponize" an NFC card audience so that an gain access to card's details could be stolen merely by moving within a few toes of a targeted person, such as in a restaurant.


It is, however, getting harder to clone high-frequency building access cards anticipated to defensive measures people take to protect their cards.


For that reason, "the next step is to attack the building, " Brown said.


Right now Brown has been looking into how to enjoy a huge number of cards details by tampering with theRFID readers that grant building access. Your dog is improved after a prior tool he developed called the Tastic PCB (printed circuit board).


To mount the Tastic PCB, the lid is popped off a building's access credit card reader and wired in using vampire taps, Brown leafy said. Once in place, it records badge ideals of everybody who works their cards.


He's added a Bluetooth module to the Tastic PCB. With an accompanying Bluetooth software on his cellular phone, this individual can command the Tastic PCB to replay the details of the previous individual who entered the building, opening the doorway.




The attack is clever since it totally routes around some of the more recent cryptographic and authentication defense which may have been put in place for high- and ultra-high frequency NFC systems, Brown said.


"Essentially, I am just bypassing all that by breaking into the target audience, " he said.


When in an exceedingly building, an opponent must plant a backdoor to be able to harvest network data. There are a number of ways to do this.


Pertaining to instance, in an show of Mr. Robot, an intruder removes a snowboard from a climate control system and wires in a Raspberry Pi. It can a lttle bit of any fiddly job, though: He has to remove a panel from the climate control system, snip an ethernet wire and wire in the mini-computer.


A company called the Pwnie Express experienced an easier solution. This made a tool that looks like an ability strip but on the inside contains a Raspberry Pi including a sexual penetration testing toolkit. These devices, however, costed US$2, 000 and has since been stopped.

Proximity Cards – Powered by RF

October 29, 2018 by Jason Bourne  

About Proximity Card

Prox cards or Proximity cards are type of smart cards that work on the principle of “contactless technology”. Unlike ATM, debit or credit cards, which requires a reader device to read the magnetic strip, proximity cards are designed in a different way. Proximity cards does not have a magnetic strip and thus these cards are not required to be swapped in the reader device. Proximity cards make use of access control mechanism generally the physical access mechanism in the organizations to regulate employee entrance and exit in the office building. Employees in order to trespass the organization gate have to bring the proximity card in the read range of proximity reader.

How Proximity Cards Operate?

Proximity card generates an ID by receiving radio signals transmitted by the proximity reader. The reader after receiving the ID, transfers it to the primary system. The access control system checks the database to ensure whether the ID is matching or not and accordingly it allow entrance or restrict it.

Different Varieties of Proximity Card


Various varieties of proximity key fobs, proximity key tabs and proximity cards are present in the market that work with the feature of contactless technology. To name few are, HID proximity cards, AWID proximity cards, indala proximity card, kantech proximity cards, etc. Broadly proximity cards are of two types, passive and active cards. Passive proximity cards uses RF signals and have low read range and are predominantly used by organizations, in libraries, public transit system, etc. On the other hand, active proximity cards or vicinity cards make use of lithium battery fitted internally. They have high read range than passive cards and can read from a distance of 2 meters. As these are dependent on batteries, they are required to be replaced.


Pros and cons of Proximity Cards

There are various benefits of using proximity card as by its use access control is granted. Not only proximity cards provide better access control, but also great security measures. As these proximity card are provided to all the employees, these are not very expensive, but more than the expense it increases the safety measures. These low price proximity card are also used for monitoring the attendance of employees as audit reports can be easily generated by accessing proximity card for entry and exit. Moreover the proximity cards are compatible with multiple proximity readers and thus it made it more flexible to use.

 

Apart from physical access control, proximity cards are also used for gaining logical access and are used for digital signatures and certifications, email encryption and for more web based purposes. Along with the above pros, proximity cards have few cons too. These are very light weight and so if these are mishandled, they can be broken or lost easily. Merchandiser and retail outlet owners find the use of proximity card little expensive as compared to debit and credit cards for payment transactions and thus they incur extra fee for the usage of proximity cards by the customers.
