Submission + - Aussie researchers crack transport crypto, get free rides ->

mask.of.sanity writes: Shoddy customised cryptography by a state rail outfit has been busted by a group of Australian researchers who were able to replicate cards to get free rides.

The flaws in the decades-old custom cryptographic scheme were busted using a few hundred dollars' worth of equipment.

The unnamed transport outfit will hold it's breath until a scheduled upgrade to see the holes fixed.
