Privacy Technological Impacts


? RFID chips are everywhere – companies and labs use them as access keys.
? The tags work by broadcasting a few bits of information to specialized electronic readers.
? Most commercial RFID chips are passive emitters, which mean they have no
on-board battery. They send a signal only when a reader powers them with a squirt of
electrons.
? Main traits and functionalities of RFID technologies have the potential to provide
advantages (such as convenience, expediting processes) in addition to foster misperceptions
and to impact privacy.
? RFID might disclose to third parties information regarding objects carried by individuals
without their information.
? Biometric devices authenticate users to access control systems through some sort of personal
identifier such as a fingerprint, voiceprint, iris scan, retina scan, facial scan, or signature
dynamics.
? Biometric authentication systems employ unique physical characteristics (or attributes) of
an individual person in order to authenticate the person’s identity.
? A smart card is a device typically the size and shape of a credit card and contains one or
more integrated chips that perform the functions of a computer with a microprocessor,
memory, and input/output.
? Use of smart devices means the added expense of the card itself, as well as the special
reader devices.


Biometric: Biometric devices authenticate users to access control systems through some sort of
personal identifier such as a fingerprint, voiceprint, iris scan, retina scan, facial scan, or signature
dynamics.
RFID: RFID (radio frequency identification) is a technology that includes the utilization of
electromagnetic or electrostatic combination in the radio frequency (RF) part of the
electromagnetic spectrum to exclusively recognize an object, animal, or person.
Smart card: A smart card is a device typically the size and shape of a credit card and contains one
or more integrated chips that perform the functions of a computer with a microprocessor,
memory, and input/output.
