25 Years In Prison For Disabling Your Passport Chip

All United States issued passports now include a little RFID chip that has all of your no-longer-personal info embedded in it. The RFID chip is located in the back of your passport.

Many people believe that the electronic passport chip is PHASE ONE of the "mark of the beast" and that "identity theft" will be the excuse the government uses to sell the idea of imbedding the chip under your skin next - PHASE TWO.

According to Biblical prophecy, the next chip (Mark of the Beast - Phase Two) will allow you to buy and sell with it - which means it will electronically access your bank account.

HOW TO DESTROY THE MARK OF THE BEAST

There is only one fool-proof method of destroying the "Mark of the Beast - Phase One" that is imbedded in your passport. Bash in the chip with a hammer. It's the only method that won't destroy the rest of the passport. Messing with the devil is risky business because he will punish you with a prison term of up to 25 years.

IDENTITY THEFT

"Identity theft" will be the excuse the government uses to sell the idea of imbedding the chip under your skin next.

For now, you are being told that the RFID chip adds an additional layer of protection for your personal data against identity thieves.

The truth is - the RFID chip opens up a new method for identity thieves to steal your information. Any person with a radio frequency scanner can get the information off of your chip just by coming within a few feet of you.

Identity thieves, terrorists, direct marketers, data aggregators, malicious governments, or anyone else with a radio receiver within 10 meters (30+ feet) of your passport can secretly and remotely track you, log your movements through the unique "collision avoidance" ID number sent by the chip, and intercept and decrypt all the data (including your digital photo and, in some countries, your digitized fingerprints) needed to "'clone" a perfect copy of your passport, forge other identity credentials, or impersonate you.

ANDROID PHONES CAN READ YOUR PASSPORT

To read your passport - any Android phone with an NFC controller will do.

Here's how to do it:

Tapping the passport against the phone will not automatically bring up the application, as it does not contain any NDEF tags that Android applications typically use to configure auto-launch. Instead, start NFC TagInfo and then scan the passport. This will bring up an overview of the tag structure:

This screen already REVEALS a bunch of things:

1. There is an NFC chip in the passport. Near Field Communication is a type of RFID, operating at the 13.56 Mhz frequency. This is the only type of RFID that Android devices support. The more common RFID transponders such as garage door openers and key-fobs operate at a different frequency and can not be detected by the phone, because its radio does not operate at that frequency.

2. More specifically the NFC tag is an ISO 14443 smart-card, which Android also calls IsoDep technology. This is also how identification cards such as US government PIV card or contactless credit cards appear to the system.

3. “MRTD” stands for Machine Readable Travel Document, a reference to the international standard for encoding information about individuals for use in cross-border travel in a smartcard.

Clicking on that gray button is when things get really interesting, because the application will try– and most likely, fail– to access the contents of that MRTD. It will fail because the cryptographic keys required to access the data are initially missing:

This is where one of the properties of the MRTD protocol comes into play: decrypting contents of the passport requires cryptographic keys, which are derived from information printed on the passport itself. By supplying this information to the Android app, it is possible to get past this error. This is exposed via menu / “set up access keys” option.

HOW TO PROTECT YOURSELF

To protect yourself, you can purchase a radio wave blocking passport cover sold by a third-party provider. You can also wrap your passport in aluminum foil to provide additional protection against identity theft without the added cost of springing for a new cover.

Forget about nuking the "mark of the beast" in the microwave – the chip could burst into flames, leaving telltale scorch marks. Besides, have you ever smelled burnt passport?
