Efficient Security and Privacy Protection for Emerging Smart RFID Communications
Due to its constrained nature, the use of smart RFID technology introduces tremendous security and privacy issues. This paper presents IMAKA-Tate: identity protection, mutual authentication and key agreement using Tate pairing of identity-based encryption method. It is designed to tackle various challenges in the constrained nature of RFID applications by applying a light-weight cryptographic method with advanced-level 128 bit security protection. Thus, IMAKA-Tate protects the RFID system from various security and privacy threats (e.g. unauthorized tracking, cloning attack, etc.).
