Japanese bank uses RFID for document security

Wednesday, 18 August 2004, 1:03 PM EST

The company claims this is the first time RFID has been used for this. The system will be introduced by the Bank of Nagoya in April 2005.

The system will use omni-directional antennas attached to bookshelves and filing cabinets that communicate data from RFID tags embedded in documents to a software system that offers real-time document tracking.

NEC spokesperson Motofumi Yamamuro said the system is designed to be combined with other security systems to provide comprehensive and detailed document protection.

When combined with employee identification systems using cards or fingerprint sensors or tags, the RFID system could help enable real-time recording of which employees are removing or replacing which documents, whether authorised or not, from a filing cabinet or room.
