The third issue of ANYthing, the Security Magazine of State Printing House Plc has just been published. The Trend column presents an up-to-date issue: secure identification in healthcare.

Disadvantages of the current system are the lack of secure identification, and the immaturity of communication between the system elements. As a result, it was necessary to rethink the current healthcare identification systems in the European Union, and to introduce a common European healthcare card with chip which meets the requirements of our age.

This issue also includes an article on bank cards with RFID which function as an electronic wallet. Among Standards, we find the set of requirements necessary for international operation of EMV bank cards. The news column include the topics nanotechnology, the expected growth of RFID market, and an international RFID pilot project in the field of tyre manufacturing.
