Dutch Biometric Passport Cracked
There's a good write-up from The Register.
Two points stand out. One, the RFID chip in the passport can be read from ten meters. Two, lots of predictability in the encryption key -- sloppy, sloppy -- makes the brute-force attack much easier.
But the references are from last summer. Why is this being reported now?
