When a 125kHz proximity card is powered up by getting in “proximity” of a reader, it immediately begins to transmit a fixed binary code number. As a result, it’s also possible to use a device that will stealthily power up the card from a distance to read and record its internal data. An attacker can then easily use the card’s information to let unauthorized people in.
