Last Friday, the US National Institute for Standards and Technology (NIST) published guidance on how to securely use RFID technology. SP800-98 explains RFID technology, places it in context, reviews risk involved with each of its uses and suggests mitigative controls.
It considers business process, business intelligence and privacy risk, in addition to 'external risks' such as those involved with electromagnetic radiation. The document, with its 150 pages is very detailed, and a timely release given the wide variety of potential uses for which RFID technology is now being considered.
