In this paper, the authors present a security analysis of two authentication protocols, proposed for low-cost RFID systems. These protocols are considered to employ ultra-lightweight functions and are very efficient. However, they demonstrate design flaws that result in full secret disclosure in both protocols. These disclosure attacks undermine the security of both protocols. Further analysis highlights additional attacks including traceability and reader impersonation. Radio Frequency IDentification (RFID) systems are becoming pervasive in large scale identification applications. The most widely deployed are low-cost RFID systems
