Abstract

There has been some speculation as to the protection offered by the Frequency Hopping Spread Spectrum utilised by RFID technology. This paper explores the construction of an attack based on the broadcast of an attack signal in a single channel. The study details an experiment on two groups of tags where the experimental group are exposed to an attack signal broadcast on a single channel. With consistent findings across both control and experimental groups the experiment clearly demonstrates that FHSS offers no protection against such an attack.
