A Study on Lightweight Mutual Authentication Protocol Based on Simple Operation
In recent years, RFID technology has been widely applied to various fields in everyday life, and many research on RFID application technology are continuously being carried out in domestically and internationally. However, RFID technology has various security threats, and various security technologies are needed to solve them. One of them is mutual authentication between RFID components. Until now, various mutual authentication scheme have been studied in RFID systems. Especially a lightweight mutual authentication protocol suitable for a low-cost tag environment has been proposed. In this paper, we propose a lightweight RFID mutual authentication protocol that compares and analyzes existing RFID mutual authentication scheme, satisfies various security requirements, and reduces computation.
