Security Threats and Aspects in RFID and NFC communication (english, 20.02.2015)

Abstract The following paper discusses security threats and aspects in Radio Frequency Identi fication and Near Field Communication. Therefore Privacy-Violations, Authentication problems, problems with low-cost RFID Tags and basic threats like destruction are explained. Furthermore eavesdropping, data corruption, modifi cation and insertion are a security threat in the communication. Only a Man-in-the-Middle attack is complicated to implement for an attacker
