While there are many positive aspects in which RFID devices are useful, there have also been increased concerns over the privacy and security of personal information.

Advanced Security and Privacy for RFID Technologies addresses these concerns with its comprehensive coverage on current issues with security models and everyday threats and vulnerabilities. This informative publication not only addresses the security risks involved with RFID technologies, but also gives insight on some possible solutions and preventions. Researchers, professionals, and practitioners aiming to better understand the risks involved with these developing technologies will benefit from this book’s expansive coverage on the topic.

Topics Covered

The many academic areas covered in this publication include, but are not limited to:

  • IT Policy and Standardization
  • IT Security and Ethics
  • Mobile and Wireless Computing
  • Privacy Requirements and Solutions
  • RFID Standardization and Communication
  • Software and Systems Design

Reviews and Testimonials

Computer scientists and electrical engineers address security and privacy concerns around radio frequency identification (RFID) systems, and suggest some solutions to the dangers. So far, the technology is used mainly for keeping track of commercial inventory, but the underlying architecture could serve more sinister applications. Among the topics are RFID standards, hardware attacks, an overview of cryptography, privacy versus performance in denial-of-service attacks on RFID systems, and covert channel attacks in RFID-enabled supply chains.
