RFID Testing from Corsaire

RFID tokens are used by organisations to regulate access to a wide range of resources; such as building entry, print management, personnel tracking and contactless payments.


What is RFID?

RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) is the use of electromagnetic fields to transmit data for the purpose of identifying tracking tags associated with an object. These tags contain electronically stored information which is wirelessly transmitted at short distance.


Why do I need RFID security testing?

RFID's versatile application means that it's a constantly evolving technology. RFID technology is commonly implemented as part of a door entry system in a leased building, or outsourcing agreement, and may not be subject to the same detailed security scrutiny as your corporate networks.


What does RFID testing cover?

We follow a detailed testing methodology, designed to identify any weaknesses in both the chosen technology and its implementation. This can consists of:

- Enumerating all RFID technologies presented
- Cloning and impersonation evaluation
- Client-side authorisation and privilege escalation controls
- Vulnerability assessment of known RFID weaknesses
- Brute-forcing of secondary authentication, such as PINs
- Configuration review of RFID control software
- Denial of Service evaluation.


Corsaire's RFID testing and reporting

When testing has been completed, an in-depth report will be generated by our technical team that includes practical recommendations for improving your RFID security.

For vulnerable systems, a practical demonstration can also be provided to show tokens being covertly captured, cloned, modified and impersonated.
