Good Afternoon,

        Not sure about KB logging of a user, but I have found issues with
other RF devices. MS and Logitech brands interfere with several brands of
Cordless phones, vice versa. They also can interfere with RF LAN systems,
if close enough to the AP. We have discontinued their use for these

I think the DoD/Army TEMPEST Regulations would apply.

Has anyone implemented any policies regarding RF keyboards
(and/or other peripherals)? Recently, there has been some
debate within my office of the feasibility of remote
keystroke logging from these devices and I was wondering
if anyone has researched this topic or done any testing.
