Universally Composable RFID Identification and Authentication Protocols” is a more theoretical work by M. Burmeister not looking at the physical or link layer issues of RFID but one step further. He figuered out a list of diserable requirements for his universal composability framework protocol design:

  • Efficiency
  • Optimistic Performance
  • Privacy
  • Security
  • Availability
  • Concurrent Security
  • Modularity and Reusability

The actual algorithm is based on communication keys and i.e. pseudorandom number generator techniques. Unfortunately not really straight forward, but secure!
