Analyses of Attacks on Embedded RFID Application Under U-Healthcare System

Part of the Lecture Notes in Electrical Engineering book series (LNEE, volume 235)


A variety of security and privacy threats to RFID authentication protocols have been widely studied, including eavesdropping, replay attacks, denial of service (DoS) attacks, tracking, and traceability. Considering this RFID security issues, we surveyed the security threats and open problems related to issues by means of information security and privacy. In this paper, we have analyzed and compared practical threat on U-healthcare system.
