Secured Mutual Authentication Protocol for Radio Frequency Identification Systems

Authors: C. Kalamani, S. Sowmiya, S. Dheivambigai, G. Harihara Sudhan


Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) is a blooming technology which uses radio frequency to track the objects. This technology transmits signals between tag and reader to fetch information from the tag with a unique serial identity. Generally, the drawbacks of RFID technology are high cost, high consumption of power and weak authentication systems between a reader and a tag. The proposed protocol utilizes less dynamic power using reversible truncated multipliers which are implemented in RFID tag-reader with mutual authentication protocol system to reduce both leakage and dynamic power consumption. The proposed system was simulated using Xilinx and Cadence tools.

Keywords: Mutual authentication, protocol, reversible gates, RFID.
