Personalized radio-frequency identification (RFID) tags can be exploited to infringe on privacy even when not directly carrying private information, as the unique tag data can be read and aggregated to identify individuals, analyze their preferences, and track their location. This is a particularly serious problem because such data collection is not limited to large enterprise and government, but within reach of individuals. In this paper, we describe the security analysis and implementation leveraging globally networked mobile RFID service. We propose a secure mobile RFID service framework leveraging mobile networking. Here we describe the proposed framework and show that it is secure against known attacks. The framework provides a means for safe use of mobile phone-based RFID services by providing security to personalized RFID tags.
