Whitepaper: Provably Secure Ubiquitous Systems: Universally Composable RFID Authentication Protocols

by Florida State UniversityJan 01, 2008

This research paper examines two unlinkably anonymous, simple RFID identification protocols that require only the ability to evaluate hash functions and generate random values, and that are provably secure against Byzantine adversaries. The main contribution is a universally composable security model tuned for RFID applications. By making specific setup, communication, and concurrency assumptions that are realistic in the RFID application setting, the author arrives at a model that guarantees strong security and availability properties, while still permitting the design of practical RFID protocols.
