RFID Implants & Windows 10 Authentication

Still unlocking your computer with a password?
Bah! Let's use our RFID implant instead.

What you'll need...


What makes this setup so easy is that the RFID reader acts as a USB HID device. It scans the implant, pulls the UID, and enters it into the active window!
  1. Plugin the RFID reader
  2. Test functionality
    1. With Notepad open scan your implant
    2. Success! Entered into Notepad will be the UID of your implant
    3. Copy the previous string
  3. Windows Sign-in options
    1. Set the Windows Hello Pin login as the previously captured string
  4. Done!

Next Steps...

In the future, I would like to use my RFID implant as 2FA to log in to Windows. As it stands this is more of a password replacement than anything else. Currently, though, it doesn't seem like there's a built-in way to require more than one authentication method per login so this might require some third party solution to implement.

VeriChip: The FDA Approved Biohack

VeriChip: The FDA Approved BiohackA lot has changed within biohacking in the last sixteen years. Let's take a look at VeriChip, the only FDA approved human identification RFID implant.
    In the '90s the practice of implanting pets with RFID identification microchips became a standard, i.e., Spot gets picked up by animal care and control, Spot's microchip gets scanned providing the veterinarian with an ID number linked to an entry in a database, Spot gets returned to their owner based on that ID number and the information in the connected database. Eleven years later, Dr. Richard Seeling watched 9/11 first responders in New York City write their badge numbers on their arms in marker. *lightbulb moment* A few days later Dr. Seeling implanted a pet RFID microchip in his arm, had no significant complications, and thus the idea of the VeriChip was born. 
Jump ahead to 2004 and the VeriChip has been approved by the FDA for use in medical applications. This approval allowing for …

Biohacking: The Human Upgrade

Biohacking: The Human UpgradeAs previously seen on Last summer I was lucky enough to get one c00p3r's last chips installs before the end of DEFCON. This past weekend I spent over 20+ hours answering questions about biohacking, watching implant installs, and explaining the use cases for each type of chip. At this point, you could say that I rep the colors of the biohacking community. I wanted to create a shortlist of some of the questions I received, recommendations I gave, use cases, and thoughts I had.
FAQWhat about the mark of the beast? I actually only received this question once during the course of the weekend. It sparked some interesting conversation though. Looking at the specific scripture we find the following...

And he causes all, the small and the great, and the rich and the poor, and the free men and the slaves, to be given a mark on their right hand or on their forehead, 17  and he provides that no one will be able to buy or to sell, except the one …
