Question description

1-list both a UNIQUE advantage and disadvantage to the U.S. Laws of Interest to Information Security Professionals. Make sure to include a summary of the Law. You may use the same law but the advantage and disadvantage needs to be unique.

2-List an UNIQUE way to protect yourself from Identity Theft and comment on two other postings under this forum.

3-What IT organization would be most advantageous to join? What SIG would you be most interested in joining with the ACM? Note: See External Links, Organizations....

4-Give one unique example of an RFID applied usage. Be sure not to repeat another students' posting.

this is what my class mates posted and i need to be different than them :

One example of RFID applied usage is to track the location of a person's vehicle. Most emergency vehicles have a tracking device in them that signals out their location. A common person could have this in their vehicle as well to track a vehicle if it is stolen.

An applied usage for RFID is implanting chips in inmates who are released due to overcrowded prisons. This would notify authorities if a convict were to enter an area which they are prohibited. This particular article on wired.com mentions schools in particular(http://www.wired.com/techbiz/it/magazine/17-03/st_best). While this seems like a power that could be abused, keeping people (especially children) safe from potential threats is generally a good idea.

RFID chips are used by animal organizations such as the humane society or SPCA in order to identify the owner of potentially lost animals. The animals are given an RFID chip in an injection that contains their owners contact information. In the event that the animal runs away or is lost, if the animal is recovered and then taken to the local SPCA or humane society, or even a vet’s office, they have the scanners that will be able to identify the owners based on the information in the chip. Most animal organizations and vet offices come equipped with these scanners so the “chipping” of animals is a common practice that helps reunite lost pets with their owners. 

An example of an RFID applied usage is that in hospitals. I saw an article written by the Food and Drug Adminstration (FDA) about how it was considering the potential uses of the technology. It could be potentially utilized in keeping track of the locations of patients and making sure that the correct dosages of medications were distributed to the right areas. The nurses could have the readers  which would emit the radio waves with the individual tags on the supplies and on the clothing that the patients were wearing.

RFID's can be seen in many sports but the one sport that seems to be getting the most use out of it is running. When running a race as big as The Marine Core Marathon, you have thousands of runners come to race. The problem is that what if they start the clock and you are at the back of the line for the start of the race? RFID's fix this by having the timing in the chip start one you cross the timing point station. For every race there is a start and finish timing station with other points in between the race in order to get your average mile time. The RFID helps keep track of runners and their times throughout the race and could possibly help them improve their times for future 

RFID is a really awesome idea and the way I would utilize it is by implanting it within a persons gear for a massive game of Man Hunt. Man Hunt is a game where two teams go hunting in an area for another team. Both teams have jail cells and the objective of the game is to capture units of the opposite team until the team forfeits or the leader is captured. You can save a teammate by breaking them out of jail, but that requires team members to act together to come up with a plan. RFID comes into play by it being on everyone so locations by team members are known. A UAV device could be implemented where at a certain time in the game, everyone could see where everyone is hiding. 

My unique example of RFID applied usage is implanting a chip into a persons arm that is connected to their bank account. In Barcellona, the VIP Baja Beach Club gives you the option to get a chip implanted in your arm to pay for drinks, food and helps you get into VIP lounges.  (http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/technology/3697940.stm). It's a good idea when you don't have pockets or carrying a wallet or purse is too much of a hassel. However, if you want the chip removed it is your own responsibility (http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/technology/3697940.stm). The Club wll not pay for it to be removed and will not remove it so you have to get it removed by a doctor. The question is, is all worth a wallet/purse? 

Some video game developers have starting experimenting with RFID.  A group called Mobile Radicals created a mixed reality game that uses mobile phones and RFID technology coupled with human bodies running around a playing field.  It is sort of like a modern day pac man with some people being pac man and others being ghosts.  This is just one example of how this sort of technology could potentially change the gaming world.  

A unique use of RFID chips is implanting it into a persons body and using it to store data. An artist in New York has done it. Anthony Antonellis has implanted a RFID chip into his hand and has synced it with his phone. Using the chip, he stores art work and uses it to distripute artwork.

A unique example of an RFID applied usage is in agriculture. Farmers use RFID to track their animals throught their farm and monitor all the animals health that need to be monitored. For a farmer to feed every single animal the right amount of food everyday at the right time is extremely inefficient. Using the RFID farmers can automatically feed the animals exactly what they need, this is way more time efficient and cost effective. The RFID can send back any information involved with monitoring the animals like their health.

In a recent article on Wired.com, the author, David Kravets, provided an update to a hotly debated topic being prototyped in public schools. Several school districts provided their students with ID cards that had RFID chips embedded into them. These cards allowed the students to be tracked. The school district used the technology to improve the accuracy of their attendance. The school receives federal money based on the actual number of students who attend each day. The benefit of the RFID cards allowed the school to know exactly how many students where on campus, and thus getting the accurate amount of funding. The article explains that the school district has stopped the pilot program due to an insufficient raise in attendance. The controversy arose over a student who was suspended for not wearing the card. With the pilot program discontinued the student is now able to attend the school again. 

RFID technology is applied in many manufactoring plants today. "It's used to track parts and work in process and to reduce defects, increase throughput and manage the production of different versions of the same product." Boeing, an aerospace company, is one such company employing this technology. They use a 915 MHz system at their Wichita, Kansas facility to track parts as they travel through the facility. Before the RFID system, parts would be manually scanned. The old system left room for human error. If a part accidentally went unscanned, it went missing. Now, parts are easier to find, and there is less chance of missing parts.

My example of RFID applied usage is a card reader. This technology could be used in a store or large company. A card is issued to an employee or customer and that card may be used as a form of identification to enter a building or could be loaded with money that a customer may use instead of a credit card or cash (both of which could be riskier than losing a card that works with an RFID). The card reader is loaded with encryption features that make it nearly impossible to recreate a card (http://www.proximarf.com/ProductsAndServices/CryptoRFPage.aspx).
