Abstract: In recent years, RFID technology becomes an important role in the supply chain management. A RFID-enabled system can improve the efficiency and effectiveness of supply chain management systems. This paper considers ownership transferring problems of RFID-enabled systems and proposes an online RFID protocol with secure ownership transfer. It can allow the owner of RFID tag to securely communicate with RFID systems and transfer the ownership to next owner in an online manner. The proposed protocol can achieve the following security requirements: secure ownership transferring, entity mutual authentication, and key agreement. Our protocol supports mutual authentication, key agreement, and tag ownership transfer. In addition, we also design an auditing mechanism to prevent that a malicious owner tries to tamper the tag.
