Abstract: RFID-enabled supply-chain systems are in an open-system environment, where different organisations have different business workflows and operate on different standards and protocols. This supply-chain environment can only be effective if the partners can trust each other and be collaborative. Besides that, counterfeiting is a challenging issue in RFID Supply-Chain Management (SCM). On the basis of the analysis of traditional trust framework in SCM, this paper proposes a seven-layer RFID trust framework. An example of integration of our trust framework with SCM systems is presented. Taxonomy of cloning threats and solutions is also presented.

Keywords: RFID; radio frequency identification; SCM; supply chain management; trust; security; authentication; supply chain collaboration; counterfeiting.
