Cover-Coding definition in Computer Security terms:
Definition(s): A technique to reduce the risks of eavesdropping by obscuring the information that is transmitted. The EPCglobal Class-1 Generation-2 and ISO/IEC 18000-6C standards use cover-coding to obscure certain transmissions from readers to tags. A more detailed description of how cover-coding is used in these two standards can be found in Section 188.8.131.52 on cover-coding.
