Presenting a New Method of Authentication for the Internet of Things Based on RFID

Conference paper
Part of the Advances in Intelligent Systems and Computing book series (AISC, volume 700)


Nowadays, the Internet of Things is significantly used in the world of information technology. One of the most important things for the Internet of Things is RFID tags that send information out of the environment. Forasmuch as the security process is important, the network authentication should be done with great accuracy. In this study, we propose a cryptographic authentication method that can increase the security of Internet of Things against various attacks.
