SE-H: A Secure and Efficient Hash Protocol for RFID System

Shadi Ismail Nashwan


The Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) systems are suffered from the growing of security vulnerabilities. In the RFID Applications, an attackers may exploit these vulnerabilities to break the tag holder privacy and desynchronize the communication messages between system components. The majority of the proposed solutions fail to solve the existing vulnerabilities. Therefore, the authentication protocol is the main challenge in such systems. This paper proposes a secure and efficient hash authentication (SE-H) protocol for RFID system to support attractive security features. Compared with the recent RFID authentication protocols, the SE-H protocol cannot only perform strong security features including mutual authentication and the data secrecy features, but also perform the user anonymity and untraceability features with low cost performance. The security analysis proves that the SE-H protocol is resistant to the current vulnerabilities. Furthermore, the performance analysis in term of the authentication operations cost illustrates that SE-H protocol is more efficient than the recent RFID protocols.
