RFID cloning to implanted tags
People often ask about the possibility of copying (cloning is the term used when talking about copying an RFID tag) their existing RFID cards to implanted chips. Up until now this has not been possible, myself and Amal among others have discouraged the idea as being impractical. The best people could do was to add the ID of their new implant to the control system, which is often not possible for work or school access systems.
I've been hinting for a while that I've got some cool new implants, one of these is an RFID chip which allows cloning of some existing access cards.
The new chip is a T5577, this type of chip is often used for cloning RFID cards, but until now it has not been available in an implant form factor.
Below is a picture of the new chip:
Most RFID implants are 2x12mm, this chip is much smaller at only 1.4x8mm. Less than half the volume of the older
chips, with a noticeably smaller needle (14 gauge) leading to less tissue trauma and therefore faster healing. The image below shows a standard 2x12mm chip and 12 gauge needle at the top, and the new chip and needle at the bottom:
Those of you who attended Grindfest Zero may have seen me cloning Cassox's work ID to one of these chips, he has implanted the chip and made a video of using it in his workplace, which you can watch here.
Or get an assortment of chips implanted along a forearm, in descending order of frequency and interoperability! When confronted with an unknown reader type, you just slowly scan down your arm until something beeps!
@zombiegristle - I'm the one with the xEM and xNT in the same hand.
You can check out the software before you receive it. It's primitive.
I've bought myself one of these , as the description mentioned it reading/writing EM4000, 4200 and 4300 families. The software is the same as @McSTUFF posted.
It does not, however. read the emulated EM410x, let alone write to it.
Thinking it might be a problem with the read area, i've switched out the coil for a circular polarized one. Still no dice.
So, beware the chinese ATA5577 writers, they just don't seem to be compatible.
