I think you got it. If the RFID and server are in lock step, doesn't this really mean that each RFID has it's OWN corresponding server??

MIT doesn't seem have any budgetary constraints, must be pretty nice... From where I sit, things are a bit different.

I think what I was trying to get at is large Universities are closely tied with various government entities through grant funding and if one of those Universities, say, figures out how to compromise Tor *cough*Carnegie Melon*cough* or any other piece of tech it's reasonable to assume that ANY entity in any branch of government could "request" that information.

I'm not saying they influence research. I'm saying that it's reasonable to assume they are fully briefed on it. Including, but not limited to, how to circumvent it.

Not drunk.

"Just keep another bank account" smacks of "We can't promise you we abide by best practices" to me. So yeah. Why NOT 5 bank accounts? Why not 10? I say fuck all that, just give me ONE Bank that takes it's (and my) security seriously. One that has an active Risk Management Plan for when things start to go south. I don't think that's too much to ask, considering that my checking and savings accounts together don't make enough interest to account for inflation...
