Skimming is done passively without sending out any data. This attack is almost impossible to detect but also requires the rogue reader to have the ability to communicate with the RFID tags and readers by knowing the proper air communications protocol. This could be done by placing a skimming device in an area where RFID communications are taking place. The skimmer would be passive-only and not transmit data. If built correctly, it could obtain information sent by RFID tags and then retrieve it at a later date.
