CNRFID has partnered with Convergent Software to develop RFID Privacy Impact Assessment Software

The CNRFID, the French National RFID Center, and Convergent Software Ltd are pleased to announce a new partnership to meet the processes defined in EN 16571 and to develop a multilingual cost-effective software to evaluate privacy in RFID and NFC applications.

A partnership about privacy on RFID and NFC applications

This partnership will develop a cost-effective software to enable European companies using RFID and NFC to meet the processes defined in EN 16571 Information Technology – RFID privacy impact assessment process.
This new European Standard is expected to be published in July 2014.


A software for undertaking a privacy impact assessment on any RFID application

This is a true co-development merging the skills of CNRFID with its in-depth understanding of RFID technology, with the RFID software development skills of Convergent Software Ltd (CSL).
This software reduces the need for the end user to understand the details of RFID technology.
With the minimum of accurate end-user input about the application, the software fully compliant with EN 16571, will carry out :
- All the comparable risk assessment processes irrespective of the application and the RFID technology used,
- The internal reports to help the organisation improve the privacy features of the RFID application,
- The external summary reports that the European Commission expects for all new RFID applications.
The software is planned to be available in different languages to support end users meeting the formal European Recommendation for undertaking a privacy impact assessment on any RFID application.


The CNRFID ( French National RFID Center)

The CNRFID was created by the French Ministry of Economy, Finance and Employment to help in the development of RFID and NFC technology and to increase its usage in order to help both RFID solutions suppliers and RFID users. It aims at encouraging networking, solutions deployment and partnerships between providers, users, research laboratories and institutions. www.centrenational-rfid.com  
Convergent Software Ltd
Convergent Software Limited is working at the leading edge of developing encoding and decoding software for RFID applications.  Major markets include libraries and airline baggage handling, with products designed for system vendors and end user organizations (simulators, diagnostic software…). http://www.convergent-software.co.uk

Created by the French Government, the French National RFID Center encourages the deployment of RFID - Radio Frequency IDentification. RFID is an automatic identification technology offering potential applications in all sectors (retail, health, aeronautic industry, leisure, transportation ...). Active RFID tags and passive RFID tags appears in different form factors: RFID tags, RFID badges, RFID cards ... These RFID tags are generally associated with RFID readers connected to the information system. Commonly used RFID frequencies are: RFID LF (125 and 134.2 kHz), RFID HF (13.56 MHz) and RFID UHF (860-960 MHz). For HF RFID, the physical principles and applications are identical to those used for NFC (Near Field Communication) or contactless smart cards. Associated with sensors network, these RFID technologies are the basis for future applications of the Internet of Things (IoT). The CNRFID supports the RFID suppliers, RFID users, institutions and research organizations according to their needs by promoting the use of ISO or EPC standards. It brings together over 120 national and international stakeholders involved in the development of RFID projects.
