Interesantes afirmaciones que desfavorecen al RFID para la identificación y localización de seres humanos se encuentran en el borrador del reporte "El Uso de RFID para Identificación Humana" del Subcomité de Aplicaciones y Tecnologías Emergentes del DHS (Department of Homeland Security) de Estados Unidos.
But for other applications related to human beings, RFID appears to offer little benefit when compared to the consequences it brings for privacy and data integrity. Instead, it increases risks to personal privacy and security, with no commensurate benefit for performance or national security. Most difficult and troubling is the situation in which RFID is ostensibly used for tracking objects (medicine containers, for example), but can be in fact used for monitoring human behavior. These types of uses are still being explored and remain difficult to predict.
For these reasons, we recommend that RFID be disfavored for identifying and tracking human beings. When DHS does choose to use RFID to identify and track individuals, we recommend the implementation of the specific security and privacy safeguards described herein.
