It makes use of RFID technology, which offers a contact-less transaction between a gateway and a travelling ticket. This system will eventually replace all the traditional paper tickets. The university sees it as its social responsibility to look critically at potential security issues in such systems, in the common interest of all stakeholders, providing free evaluation and advice. Therefore, I have investigated the possibility to clone a ticket, as part of my master thesis project. A clone is an exact copy of the original ticket which cannot be detected by the gateway, possibly enabling a malicious user to abuse the system.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
