ADOPTION OF RFID TECHNOLOGY IN KENYA

Abstract

The objective of this research was to evaluate knowledge of RFID systems in the Kenyan ICT sector. This was in tandem with my Master’s thesis titled “Enhancing RFID Application Data Security Using RSA Algorithm”. To enhance the current security measures and controls in current RFID applications I propose RSA algorithm as the best suited public cryptosystems in the currently available encryption standards. As I collected my data from the different respondents I issued my questionnaires I found varying responses across the board, some knew of RFID and RSA algorithm while others have never heard of RFID and RSA algorithm. After collection of this data i used SPSS to analyze it and the deductions I attained formed the basis of this publication. This research was focused wholly in the Kenyan ICT sector and evaluated the knowledge of RFID in sector.

Keywords: Encryption, RFID, RSA algorithm
