Ft. McNair, Washington D.C, USA
QID was invited by the institute of Defense and Business (www.idb.org) to speak on a panel discussing the current challenges and possible technology approaches to RFID security. The Institute for Defense & Business (IDB) focuses on the imperative need to increase and sustain the interchange of information between the U.S. military and the private sector. This is an invitation only event, geared toward examining the RFID implementation experience, challenges, and way forward for the Department of Defense.
Forums like these are very critical in building a sustainable and long term strategy around RFID. The technology is perhaps at the stage where Internet was years ago. Security, reliability and ease of use will become important enablers for such a technology to become mainstream.“We hope to contribute significantly towards building a secure solution for the Department of Defense.” said Prof. Rory O’Connor, Chief Technology Officer for QuantumID Technologies.
