shy adds physical security to contactless technology
Today too much of our wireless technology is free and easy; particularly those that manage access to our most valuable assets; buildings, cars and money. If someone picks up our modern 'keys', access cards, contactless payment cards or wireless keyfobs, they have access to our lives with little obstacle. This project is based in the assertion that technology should be more shy.
shy is a physical layer of security that can be applied to RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) circuitry to allow only the user to activate the identification.
The innovation involves the user in the authentication process, using touch points on the card to enable the RFID chips embedded in the card. Improved security without reduced user experience.
