Radio Frequency Identification RFID transponders are tiny resource-limited computers that do not have a battery that needs periodic replacement. (some do…) RFID tags are inductively powered by their external reading devices, called RFID readers. Once the RFID tag is activated, the tag decodes the incoming query and produces an appropriate response by using the energy of the incoming radio wave to power the chip long enough to respond. RFID tags can do a limited amount of processing, and have a small amount (<1024 bits) of storage.

History of RFID tags In 1946 Léon Theremin invented an espionage tool for the Soviet Union which retransmitted incident radio waves with audio information. Sound waves vibrated a diaphragm which slightly altered the shape of the resonator, which modulated the reflected radio frequency. Léon Theremin

History (II) Another early work exploring RFID is the landmark 1948 paper by Harry Stockman, titled "Communication by Means of Reflected Power" (Proceedings of the IRE, pp 1196–1204, October 1948). Stockman predicted that "…considerable research and development work has to be done before the remaining basic problems in reflected-power communication are solved, and before the field of useful applications is explored." Mario Cardullo's U.S. Patent 3,713,148 in 1973 was the first true ancestor of modern RFID; a passive radio transponder with memory

On September 25, in response to demand by user groups and widespread complaints, the International Standards Organisation has returned two standards, ISO11784 and ISO11785, to SC19 Working Group 3 by vote of the ISO Council. The ISO Council is the executive body of the Geneva, Switzerland-based International Standards Organization. ISO11784 and 11785 together comprise a standard for electronic identification (RFID) in agricultural machinery, livestock and other animals. ISO

RFID Threats ( RSA ) Civil liberties groups are concerned about RFID technology being used to invade people's privacy; RFID tags enable unethical individuals to snoop on people and surreptitiously collect data on them without their approval or even knowledge. For example, RFID-enabled public transit tickets could allow public transit managers to compile a dossier listing all of a person's travels in the past year -- information which may be of interest to the police, divorce lawyers, and others.

Smoke without Fire There is no plausible scenario where RFID poses a threat to privacy. The most extreme fears expressed about RFID seem to be based on films like Minority Report , in which an omnipresent state tracks its citizens’ every move. Governments and giant corporations, we are asked to believe, will implant RFID chips into underwear and
