Personal RFID tags store valuable information private to their users that can easily be subject to eavesdropping, unauthorized reading, owner tracking, and cloning. RFID tags are also susceptible to relay attacks and likely to get lost and stolen. In this paper, the authors introduce the problem of user authentication to RFID tags. This allows users to control when and where their RFID tags can be accessed. They present a novel approach for user authentication to multiple RFID tags called "Vibrate-to-Unlock" (VtU).
