Electronic Product Code (EPC) Radio Frequency IDentification (RFID) tags support a cost effective anti-counterfeiting mechanism through the tag-specific and globally unique Transponder ID (TID). However, with the existence of customizable tags, this countermeasure could easily be bypassed as long as the TID codes are leaked through either physically opening genuine tags or unauthorizedly breaching the backend database. To the best of user's knowledge, physical protection technologies are exploited to guarantee the confidentiality of the on-tag TIDs, but cryptographic protections targeting the security of database-side TIDs does not receive much attention to date.
