Privacy Concerns and Traceability in RFID System
John Ayoade (National Institute of Information and Communications Technology, Japan)

Abstract. There is a possibility of modification of information contained in the transponder when necessary authentication procedure is not established. Moreover, illegal access to the tag by a malicious reader could create innumerous threats to the user's privacy. In this paper, we are focusing on finding solution to the illegal access of reader into the transponder/tag and more importantly considering the importance of tracing and tracking the illegal access in RFID system. A good authentication procedure is necessary and this is the reason why we proposed APF- Authentication Processing Framework. APF is an authentication framework that will register every reader before it can access any transponder.
