A majority of existing RFID authentication protocols consider tagged items that are independent of other tagged items. However, as RFID tags permeate to item-level granularity where several items comprise an object of interest there is a need to develop protocols that seamlessly accommodate inclusion and exclusion of tags on such an object. We propose protocols for this scenario.
