With the potential to dramatically decrease costs and improve efficiency in diverse application areas ranging from asset tracking and supply chain automation to healthcare patient administration and animal tracking, RFID has become one of the fastest-growing new IT technologies. In order for businesses to recover costs, RFID tags must be inexpensive, making security infrastructure difficult to install. The public has reacted with alarm to the possibility that anyone with an RFID reader could obtain information on their purchases, finances, and travel habits, and possibly even more sensitive information such as medical records, and thus, in response, manufacturers are introducing more privacy and security features in new RFID standards. In this column we survey current and future developments in RFID security standards.
Index Terms:
RFID tags, RFID, security standards, radio frequency identification
