Overview[edit | edit source]
The primary objective of the kill command is to protect personal privacy. RFID tags could potentially be used to track individuals that carry tagged items or wear tagged articles of clothing when the RFID tags are no longer required for their intended use, such as to expedite checkout or inventory. The ability to disable an RFID tag with the kill command provides a mechanism to prevent unauthorized access to and illegitimate use of product information stored in the RFID tag.
