    Very interesting Christian. I'm not surprised. These keys started coming out at a time that strong encryption was still being controlled by the USA government and exports were prevented. No doubt it is a 40-bit key. The chips have since become available to crack a 40-bit key with brute force pretty easily. So blame the USA government for this.

    Interesting that RSA has a hand is this. They license competing encryption. By defeating Texas Instrument's product they make it possible to sell their own. Dirty pool?

    They're still much harder to break than conventional locks, so it's not that big of a problem.
    Rest assured, whoever wants to steal your car wont' put together 16 chips and wait 15 minutes to break the code. Just pick it up, put it into a truck, and go

    US government already allows using 128-bit encryption. It is the design/decide problem of the tag using weak encryption key.
