This paper presents a new RFID identification protocol: RIPP-FS. The proposed protocol is based on hash chains and it enforces privacy and forward secrecy. Further, unlike other protocols based on hash chains, our proposal is resilient to a specific DoS attack, in which the attacker attempts to exhaust the hash chain the tag is programmed to spend. The computations required on the tag side are very limited, just three hash functions; on the reader side RIPPFS allows to leverage pre-computations, in such a way that tag identification resolves to a lookup in pre-computed tables, speeding up the identification process. To the best of our knowledge this is the first protocol providing all these features at once. © 2007 IEEE.
