Radio Frequency IDentification (RFID) is a method for automated identifying objects. One of the problems of this technology is its security. RFID tags include resource limitation; therefore, the system designers cannot implement complex circuits to enhance their security. Usually the symmetric and asymmetric encryption methods increase resources and cost. Because it is believed to increasing security is inconsistent with the simplicity, the researchers mostly use one-way encryption methods. In this paper, the authors propose a mutual authentication protocol based on public key cryptography.
