The maturity and stability of the widely used service paradigm have brought in a variety of benefits not only for software applications but also all kinds of connected devices. Web Services hide all kinds of device heterogeneities and complexities and present a homogeneous outlook for every kind of devices. Manufacturing machines, healthcare instruments, defence equipment, household utensils, appliances and wares, the growing array of consumer electronics, handhelds, we are able, and mobiles are being empowered to be computing, communicative, sensitive and responsive. Device services are enabling these connected devices to interact with one another in order to fulfil various business requirements. XML, JSON and other data formats come handy in formulating and transmitting data messages amongst all kinds of participating applications, devices, databases and services. In such kinds of extremely and deeply connected environments, the data security and privacy are being touted as the most challenging aspects. It should be noted that even security algorithms of steganography and cryptography provides us with the probability of 0.6 when it comes to protection in a service environment. Having understood the urgent need for technologically powerful solutions for unbreakable and impenetrable security, we have come out a security solution using the proven and promising RFID technology that has the power to reduce the probability of device-based attacks such as brute-force attack, dictionary attack and key-log-related attacks—which would make the device applications and services immune from malicious programmes.
