Prevention of Tampering Attacks in Mobile Radio Frequency Identification Environment

M. Sandhya and T.R. Rangaswamy

This study describes the characteristics of data tampering in RFID-based information systems and a method addressing it is proposed using hashing techniques in mobile RFID environment. The proposed method requires only hash, XOR and simple calculations but can provide good security and privacy protection features. Mobile RFID-enhanced applications (“Mobile RFID”) offer a unique way of interacting with the physical world by using the touch paradigm. They offer an intuitive way to interact with physical objects to which RFID transponders are attached. However, the development of mobile RFID applications is not well supported yet, in contrast to stationary RFID applications because of security and privacy related issues. A critical threat for Mobile RFID based information systems is represented by data tampering which corresponds to the malicious alteration of data recorded in the tag memory.
