Lightweight authentication protocol for mobile RFID networks

International Journal of Security and Networks (IJSN), Vol. 5, No. 1, 2010

Abstract: Current RFID authentication schemes are not suitable for use in a mobile RFID environment since the proposed authentication schemes result in a computing load because of the low-cost tag and provide insufficient protection to the information and to the privacy of the user. Therefore, we propose a lightweight authentication protocol for mobile RFID networks that complies with Electronic Product Code (EPC) Class-1 Gen-2 norms, effectively achieving forward security. We use the GNY logic analysis to show what the proposed authentication protocol can do against threats of replay attacks, spoofing, Man-In-The-Middle (MITM), counterfeit tag and message loss.
