RFID and Privacy website goes live

The new website will help educate visitors about RFID (radio frequency identification technology), its current and potential uses, and where possible privacy concerns might emerge. It is also part of a broader ongoing partnership between HID and MIT to develop new technology and promote a wider global discussion on the role of RFID technology in society.

Dan Greenwood, attorney and MIT lecturer, explains: “MIT recognises the need to examine the intersection of RFID technology and public policy, and to open a dialogue with interested stakeholders. This website gives us the opportunity to frame the dialogue in a way that leads to the creation of public policy that supports both privacy interests and the efficient use of RFID technology.”

Denis Hebert, president and CEO at HID Global, added: “We are pleased to be working with MIT on this website and want the site to serve as a forum for an open and interactive discussion of RFID and privacy issues.”
