RFID is a major growth area in auto ID, allowing emergency vehicles to safely trip traffic signals, and providing the technology behind contactless smart cards, "autopiloting" cars, and production automation. Finkenzeller has updated his well-received book to include the latest information on the use of RFID in ticketing and electronic passports (a very topical subject). He has added information on the EPCglobal network, and covers EPC network basics also. Parts of the chapter on frequency ranges and radio licensing regulations have been revised. Further expanded sections explain attacks on RFID systems and other security matters, such as transponder emulation or cloning, and defence using cryptographic methods. About the Author Dr. Klaus Finkenzeller, Giesecke & Devrient GmbH, Munich, Germany Klaus Finkenzeller has extensive experience in the technology of RFID, and has been involved in this industry in Europe for many years. He is currently the leader of IT and Project Management at the University of the German Federal Armed Forces in Neubiberg, and is Developer for Giesecke & Devrient GmbH in Munich, one of the world's leading companies in automatic data capture.
