RFID (Radio Frequency IDentification) is used to automate data capture allowing contact-less identification of objects using radio frequency. While RFID technology has several applications in all areas, it raises new consumer privacy risks and in business context too (silent tracking, assets inventory, profiling...etc). Panoply of solutions to privacy protection has been proposed. However, currently available approaches do not provide guarantees for efficient privacy protection. In this paper, the authors examine some representative approaches and what they can offer as protection.
