DIFRwear Offers Faraday Caged Apparel

Protect your identity with RFID chips embedded in your passport, credit cards, or work badge

Feb. 18, 2009 -- New York, N.Y. — What will $250 and a tank of gas buy these days?

All the personal information you could ever want. At least that's what one hacker proved during a recent drive through San Francisco. With RFIDsniffing gear set up in the back of a sedan, the apparatus snagged information broadcast by radio frequency chips in two passports yards away from his vehicle. Remember the days when skimmers actually had to make contact to steal and clone data? They're over.

What will less than $250 buy you?

At DIFRwear? Protection for information held on RFID chips embedded in your passport, credit cards or work badge. Each ID holder, passport case and wallet made by DIFRwear since 2005 has a Faraday Cage built into it. That hidden mesh keeps your identity and credit card information safe while the holder is closed and available for successful scanning when open.

Testing done by a U.S. General Service Administration lab certifies DIFRwear as FIPS 201 compliant — meaning thousands of our customers enjoy the same data security demanded by the U.S. military and other government agencies. And, unlike other RFID shielding products on the market, DIFRwear comes in various colors in timeless styles so only you have to know you're protected.

DIFRwear: RFID Protection, Privacy and Security.
