  4. Much has been made, in the UK press and broadcast media, of the various attempts by student activists to disguise their identities, whilst engaged in ‘peaceful protest’. And yet, many will have travelled to previous protests using the London Transport system, where RFID-enabled ‘Oyster cards’ are commonly used as a convenient means of pre-paid travel.

    For the uninitiated, a small passive RFID microchip within these ‘contactless’ travel cards enables swift access to the tube trains, and other services too. Each card is directly linked to its owner, and a full name and contact address will have been recorded prior to the issuance of each new card.

    Oyster card readers are located at tube stations across London, (i.e. in the access turnstiles), although this technology can in theory be made portable at a relatively low cost. The travel cards themselves contain passive RFID devices, meaning that once an appropriate card reader is in close proximity then the card has no choice but to ‘give up’ the information contained therein…

  5. On a point of clarity, it’s possible to obtain an Oyster card without having to firstly share contact information, such as a name and address. Of course, were payment made using a credit card then this information would be relatively easy to link with the transaction.
