Recently, RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) technology is practically applied to a number of logistics processes as well as asset management, and RFID is also expected to be permeated in our daily life with the name of ’Ubiquitous Computing’ or ‘Ubiquitous Network’ within the near future. The R&D groups in global now have paid attention to integrate RFID with mobile devices as well as to associate with the existing mobile telecommunication network. Such a converged technology and services would lead to make new markets and research challenges. However, the privacy violation on tagged products has become stumbling block. We propose light-weight security mechanism which is constructed by mobile RFID security mechanism based on WIPI (Wireless Internet Platform for Interoperability). WIPI-based light-weight mobile RFID security platform can be applicable to various mobile RFID services that required secure business applications in mobile environment.
