Abstract: Radio frequency identification (RFID) technology is a non-contact automatic identification technology. However, due to the limitations of RFID equipment, RFID technology still has hidden safety hazards that cannot be ignored. This paper presents the security architecture of RFID system based on trust chain. According to the RFID system level, the RFID equipment is layered and safely managed to construct a model that directly proves the authenticity of the logo without the need for third-party certification. A new access authentication protocol and a security association protocol supporting fast handover are proposed. Aiming at the privacy leakage of label ownership transfer, a privacy protection model for label ownership transfer is proposed. A prototype protocol for label ownership transfer based on public key encryption is presented. The results show that the prototype protocol meets the label privacy protection and is suitable for tags that support public key encryption.
