] Privacy Implications of Magstripes
] Pull out your wallet. How many cards have magstripes? Do
] you know what's on them? Would you be surprised to find
] your Social Security Number, or your Mother's and
] Father's name? What about flight information, or medical
] data, or even passwords and PIN numbers? And would you be
] surprised to learn I can get all that information in less
] than a second?
] First we will discuss what magstripes are, and how they
] work. Then we'll talk about easy ways to read this
] information, and demo scan some cards from the audience.
] We'll discuss some of the worst offenders of private
] information, and steps to protect your privacy. Next, we
] look at magstripe projects you can do (such as a Unix PAM
] plugin), and ways to remove information from magstripes.
] We will briefly touch on smart cards and RFIDs, and the
] security/privacy issues involved with both.
