RFID privacy, security should start with design

Companies planning to deploy radio frequency identification technology (RFID) must demand that privacy and security issues are addressed in the design and procurement phases of the implementation, according to Toby Stevens, a leading privacy and identity expert. Privacy should not be a "value-add feature," said Stevens, director of the UK-based Enterprise Privacy Group, an association of public agencies and corporations working to understand and develop solutions to privacy and identity-related issues. In an interview with SearchSecurity.com, Stevens talked about whether the European Commission would mandate policy controls for RFID privacy and whether government legislation could stall widespread use of the technology. Stevens said the opinions given are his own and do not necessarily reflect those of his group's member organizations.
