Ashley @ University of Westminster
I am Ashley, A software Engineering Student currently studying at the University of Westminster in London.
I have been interested in RFID technology since first getting an oyster card at the age of 10 ( the main transport card to allow access to London transport) I have since been creating RFID-based hardware that I can use to complete simple tasks in day to day life. Earlier in the year, RFID became bound in my life via the means of RFID chip implantation, yes I have a chip in my hand. Today I use this chip to allow access into my house, my car and my laptop.
RFID is an increasingly popular technology, previously used in a more industrial business such as logistics and production however we have recently seen such technology booming in more end-user cases and there is significant evidence that such technology is being used daily by the general public, contactless payments, travel networks and access systems to name a few.
For my final masters project I hope to explore the vulnerabilities of RFID by researching, analyzing and then testing these implementations. In order to do this I shall be using the Proxmark 3 Kit to both analyse and decode encrypted RFID devices and then use the ChameleonMini to emulate and clone these same tags. All my research will be documented and be readably available (pending input from the manufacturers of such card).
I would like to thank Rysc Corp for allowing the use of their devices and for making them more easily acquirable for a student like myself.
PS: Ashley inspired us to create the Rysc ❤️ Students program.
