UK National ID Card Cloned In 12 Minutes

Post by milk » Sat Aug 08, 2009 7:29 pm

"The prospective national ID card was broken and cloned in 12 minutes, the Daily Mail revealed this morning. The newspaper hired computer expert Adam Laurie to test the security that protects the information embedded in the chip on the card. Using a Nokia mobile phone and a laptop computer, Laurie was able to copy the data on a card that is being issued to foreign nationals in minutes." link

good discussion on /. as usual

"I just can't wait for national ID cards here in the States! It'll be great for plausible deniability: 'Oh, you say you saw ID? Prove it was really me.'"

Adam Laurie is a fucking legend. I've met him a few times and he's always up to some awesome hack.
