    "Newly issued e-passports were cloned and passed off as genuine in a test conducted by Dutch researcher Jeroen van Beek, of the University of Amsterdam, for the UK-based Times Online. Two British passports (which contained RFID chips) were manipulated by van Beek and passport reader software used by the Unite Nations deemed them genuine."
