RFID: Is Security the New Privacy?

Bert Moore
Editor

Have concerns about security overtaken concerns about privacy?

One of the articles in the RFID Industry & Application News Summary for this issue is headlined, "With Privacy Issues Waning, RFID Begins Ramp Up". The article itself barely touches on privacy. It merely concludes that privacy issues have "dissipated". The real point of the article is that retailers feel confident enough about moving forward with RFID without risking a massive consumer backlash over privacy concerns.

At the same time, scanning the Google Alerts for RFID (or watching TV newscasts) brings up continuing reports of the dangers of data theft from RFID-enabled (near field communications - NFC) credit cards. So, whether or not privacy concerns have "dissipated" as the article says, the new focus seems to be on security rather than privacy. But the question is, can you have privacy without security?
