The article focuses on the potential threat of the radio frequency identification (RFID) systems in the communications industry in the U.S. These problems are similar to those which are encountered by the Information Technology network administrators. Among the threats are unauthorized tag reading, eavesdropping on transmitted data and the ability to insert viruses into enterprise networks. It could be noted that RFID technology is capable of extending the perimeter of the network.
