Abstract

Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) systems are increasingly being deployed in a variety of applications. Widespread deployment of such contactless systems raises many security and privacy concerns due to unauthorized eavesdropping reader, de-synchronization between reader and tag etc. In this paper, we propose a light weight mutual authentication protocol which is an improvement over Li’s extended LMAP+ protocol. In mutual authentication, the tag and the reader of the RFID systems will authenticate each other before transmitting unique ID of tag. The proposed protocol provides protection over traceability and de-synchronization attacks.
