The integration of RFID technology and mobile smart device stimulates the daily increasing popularity of mobile RFID-based applications, which makes its way to become a new hot zone for research and development. Current RFID authentication schemes are not viable to use in mobile RFID environment. The authentication schemes result in computing load to the low cost tag and provide insufficient protection to the information privacy. In this paper, an authentication protocol in mobile RFID environment is proposed which effectively achieves forward security with preventing replay, eavesdropping, and counterfeit tag attacks.
