Recently, Radio Frequency IDentification (RFID) technique has been widely deployed in many applications, such as medical drugs management in hospitals and missing children searching in amusement parks. The applications basically can be classified into two types: non-Public Key Cryptosystem (PKC)-based and PKC-based. However, many of them have been found to be flawed in the aspect of privacy problem. Therefore, many researchers tried to resolve this problem. They mainly investigated on how low-cost RFID tags can be used in large-scale systems. However, after analyses, the authors found those studies have some problems, such as suffering physical attack or de-synch attack.
