Abstract: RFID systems, and indeed other forms of wireless technology, are now a pervasive form of computing. In the context of security and privacy, the most threatening (to privacy) and vulnerable (to insecurity) are the ‘low cost RFID systems’. The problems are further aggravated by the fact that it is this form of RFID that is set to proliferate through various consumer goods supply chains throughout the world. This is occurring through the actions of multinational companies like Wal-Mart, Tesco, Metro UPS and of powerful government organizations such as the United States DOD (department of defence) and FDA (food and drug administration). This paper examines the security and privacy issues brought about by vulnerabilities of present low cost RFID systems and explore the security and privacy threats posed as a result of those vulnerabilities. The paper will also outlines a set of objectives for mitigating such vulnerabilities and consider the challenges faced in discovering solutions to such problems. Then the paper is concluded with a survey of available solutions for addressing various security and privacy issues of low cost RFID.
