RFID, Wi-Fi or any other wireless technologies pose a series of security threats to an enterprise.
Regardless of transmission range, attackers can take advantage of a wireless reader or access point attached to the Local Area Network to launch an attack on IT assets.
While using firewalls on internet gateways is a straightforward approach, companies are often not educated on the risks of installing an RF reader. By generating an artificial RFID tag’s message, for example, an attacker can inject malicious code into database servers – a popular internet attack called ‘SQL Injections’. Other attacks can overload the system by transmitting fake RFID tag messages and, where communications are not secured, spy and record supply chain activity from outside the facility’s fence.
The main reason why most competing solutions are not secured is the lack of bi-directional communications. Encryption keys must be changed periodically to maintain security and other measures must be implemented to protect both asset information and the local area network IT resources from attacks.
How is Precyse different?
The Precyse N3 asset network protocol and the EQ product solutions were built to meet severe military security standards, are relevant to commercial enterprise’s data security reality, which both share similar data security needs.
A multi-layered approach to data security was implemented to prevent attacks, block data espionage, and maintain information integrity over time. The N3 over-the-air link protection and security benefits are:
