Jeroen van der Beek presented a flaw in the ePassports in 2008. What is the state of this flaw still in 2013? http://www.blackhat.com/presentations/bh-usa-08/van_Beek/bh_us_08_van_Beek_ePassports_Reloaded_Slides.pdf

This is hard to verifiy, since you can't buy a Nokia 6131 NFC or a Nokia 6212 NFC on the internet anymore http://www.dexlab.nl/downloads.html

That presentation contains a lot of discussion; you should make this question more explicit, naming the exact flaw. –  owlstead Jul 3 '13 at 0:41
Any of those flaws in the presentation. Are the ePassports still vulnerable? –  user27296 Jul 5 '13 at 9:08
Split the question in multiple questions and read up on the ICAO and European/BSI specifications. –  owlstead Jul 5 '13 at 15:15
