Abstract

With a range of documented attacks against RFID systems a majority of the current literature is focused on the encryption of the communication. This paper addresses such attacks by proposing alternative means of protection through utilising some of the same methods that may be used to attack these systems. The proposed methods would allow for increased security within a range of RFID applications whilst still allowing for normal operations compliant with the relevant standards.
