This technology is based on the TI 134.2 KHz transponder.
This technology is quite old, but still very popular. If you were going
to do this again, you would probably use Mifare (http://mifare.net/)
I would not be too concerned about the issues raised here. It is still
not a trivial exercise to skim and decrypt the data. Also, I would think
hi-tech criminals would spend their resources on more profitable ventures.
