Along with the development of cloud computing, cloud-based RFID is receiving more and more attentions of researchers and engineers. However, there is no research in which cloud computing is applied to RFID authentication schemes. Most current works lay emphasis on functionalities, lacking considerations about security and privacy. Classical RFID authentication schemes fail to meet the special security and privacy requirements of cloud-based RFID. The basic postulates of traditional backend-sever-based RFID authentication, i.e. secure backend channel and entirely trustworthy database, are no longer natively tenable in cloud-based RFID scenarios.
