The Hacker's Choice, a non-commercial group of computer security experts, has released a video showing a cloned passport being approved by a security scanner at a Dutch airport. When the reader scans the passport it is revealed to belong to one Elvis Aaron Presley, complete with picture.

A blog poston the site explains that the "attack makes it possible to copy, forge and modify the data so that it is still accepted as a genuine valid passport by the terminal."

However, the scanner is not the same type used at actual border controls, so it is unclear whether this tool could actually be used to fool passport control security checks.

Well its pretty interesting, however all the video showed was putting the passport into a computer at an airport. Lets see the person actually make it past security and get on the plane! ;)

I have a feeling one of the security team will know Elvis hasn't come back to life, and red flags will go up!

Well all know that's not the point, the point is you could put on a wig and a little and pretend you're anyone you want to be anywhere that uses RFID for authentication.
