4 Radio Frequency IDentification RFID what? Very little consumer awareness  77% are not aware of RFID (Capgemini, 2004)  Little contact with consumers – B2B use A technology still under development… …Yet, already used  Implementation decision before full trials take place  Security issues raised for years: e.g. passports already cracked

5 TODAY We already live in a surveillance society
