As if RFID chips in driver's licenses and passports weren't scary enough
already, London's Royal Academy of Engineering is suggesting that someday a
terrorist will be able to read personal details from a distance and, given
the right antennas and amplification, set a bomb to go off when a
particular person gets within range.
It's already widely acknowledged that unencrypted data stored on an RFID
chip in a passport can be read covertly by anybody with a pass-by reader.
