Towards Secure and Privacy-Enhanced RFID Systems

  • RFID is a technology for automated identification over a radio interface and drives many applications in ubiquitous and pervasive computing today. RFID systems are applied in security-sensitive areas such as ticketing, electronic passports, product anti-counterfeiting or entry systems. This chapter investigates generic and low-level aspects of RFID security and privacy. It gives the basic notions of security threats, objectives and mechanisms and introduces different categories of RFID systems. The chapter discusses security threats, attacks against RFID systems and possible countermeasures. The generic threats are eavesdropping, denial-of-service, manipulation, and generation of messages. It presents specific attacks such as relaying, cloning, and cryptanalytic attacks against widespread RFID systems. Furthermore, the chapter revisits attacks on the physical implementation of security mechanisms.
