Abstract: RFID (radio frequency identification) system is one of the most widely used technologies due to its broad applicability and low cost. RFID systems have various advantages but still it is prone to various attacks which try to degrade the performance of the system. As RFID system is a low cost system so security become much more challenging, because as we know the usual security mechanisms are infeasible to use on low cost tags due to their resource constrains so in this paper we present some countermeasure to prevent the attacks. The main goal of this paper is to easily define individually layers attacks and their procedure to prevent them.
Keywords: RFID, countermeasures, tags, reader, attacks, layers.
