Protection against data abuse
As a result of the increasing use of RFID technology data theft has become much more easier. Instead of acquiring the card physically in order to make illegal copies or for direct use, due to RFlD the reading out of information can be carried out by relatively simple means contact-free from a distance of up to several metres. The problem with this form of data theft is that the victim does not realize the theft. Thus it remains plenty of time for unauthorized persons to produce duplicate keys.
A shielding foil protects from:
- data theft and abuse- payment fraud
- identity theft and fraud
- damage of the RFID-chip (RFID-transponder) by external influences
To obtain efficient shielding RFID-cards or passes do not even have to be fully enclosed by the shielding foil. The simple presence of the foil in the immediate proximity is sufficient.
Tested on shielding attenuation by SGS/TÜV Saarland Forster GmbH and verified aptitude for shielding against unauthorized reading of RFID / NFC chips for the commercial frequencies 125 kHz, 13.56 MHz and 900 MHz according to MIL-STD-285 / NSA65-6 / IEEE299 / EN50147-1.
