Special Issue Information

Dear colleagues,

With the rapid rise of the Internet of Things (IoT), radio frequency identification (RFID) continues to attract specialists in research and industry. RFID makes physical objects and people identifiable and smart by enabling them to become connected with each other and exchange information. A variety of RFID systems are deployed in numerous application fields, such as public transportation, national IDs and passports, healthcare, military applications, and disaster monitoring. For example, medical RFID systems are currently being utilized to combat the COVID-19 pandemic. The core of the RFID system is the tag, which is usually limited in computing, storage, power, and wireless network capacity. RFID systems are characterized by the use of weak tags. Hence, large-scale deployment of RFID systems is naturally increasing security and privacy concerns.

The Special Issue targets scientific contributions on security and privacy of theory, algorithms, design techniques, implementations, and applications, deployed for RFID systems. We aim to enhance our understanding of a broad range of topics in security and privacy for RFID systems. Original research as well as high-quality review articles are welcome.

Topics of interest include but are not limited to:

* Lightweight cryptographic algorithms for RFID

* RFID security/privacy protocol

* RFID ownership transfer scheme

* Implementation designs for RFID security and privacy

* RFID security standards

* RFID privacy issue

* RFID security and privacy issue for healthcare services, smart homes, and smart cities

* New security and privacy challenges on RFID applications

Due to the emergence of the Internet of Things, the need for effective identification and traceability has increased. Radio-frequency identification (RFID), a simple and cheap approach for gathering information, has therefore drawn the attention of research communities. However, this system suffers from problems caused by high density, such as collisions and duplication. Thus, the deployment of RFID is more effective in a dense environment where it may improve overage and delays. A wide range of solutions have been proposed; however, the majority of these are based on the application context. In this paper, we propose a general MAC layer protocol FTSMAC (Frequency Time Scheme MAC) in which the spectrum frequency is efficiently used by dividing the signal into different time slots via a messaging mechanism used by RFID readers. This limits the collisions in high-density RFID deployment that affect the performance of the system. Thus, our solution allows the communication system to converge to a stable state within a convenient time. Full article
