I am going to have to get a pasport for work as I am likely to be going to the Bahamas and such soon. All the passports now have RFID chips in them but the are SUPPOSED to only be able to be read when stuck under a reader. I suspect though that they could be read remotely and based on my paranoia am thinking I will carry mine in a case to 'protect it from dammage'. Im was thinking of getting some 'pleather', sewing mylar to one side then makeing a sort of wallet out of it that would enclose the pasport and ensure it was only being used in the way it is claimed and could not be read by the 'wrong' folks and identify me as an American where that may equal being of value for ransome and such. I was just wondering if anyone knew how well that would work?
