Two main goals of this workshop are:
- highlighting the privacy and security issues in some deployments (epassports, transportation cards, card emulation, relay attacks...).
- giving the open source tools and knowledge to the audience so that they can go back home and try stuffs by themselves.

Topics covered:
- RFID/NFC readers for PC supported by open-source software
- PC/SC: limits of manipulating RFID with contact-oriented standards (ATR/ATS & APDUs).
- NFC, anticollision, card emulation, relay attacks, RFID authentication protocol example
- libnfc tools, RFIDIOt tools, ePassports, privacy
- Open hardwares, Proxmark

For the hands-on, I distribute bootable CDs (based on Debian Live) with all drivers & open-source tools I could find and the first 15 participants can borrow a reader and tags.

Requirements to be able to participate actively: A laptop able to boot on a CD or a USB key (if so, please bring yourself a USB key >= 1Gb to be formatted). And of course, bring your own tags, epassports, etc!
