THE MAGAZINE

A Site to See

By Sherry L. Harowitz

This month's site to see takes you to Google's new purchase, YouTube. Beyond the endless clips from The Daily Show and The Simpsons you'll actually find a wealth of security information. For example, IBM has created a short video of researcher Paul Moskowitz demonstrating the company's new radio-frequency identification (RFID) tag known as the 'Clipped Tag,' a label for clothing that has perforated edges so that consumers can easily tear off the device's antenna once they leave a store after a purchase. Clipped Tag is, according to an IBM white paper, "a viable addition to the privacy mechanisms proposed for the use of RFID in the consumer space."
