Pathchecker: An RFID application for tracing products in Supply-chains

In this paper, we present an application of RFIDs for supply-chain management. In our application, we consider two types of readers. On one part, we have readers that will mark tags at given points. After that, these tags can be checked by another type of readers to tell whether a tag has followed the correct path in the chain. We formalize this notion and define adequate adversaries. Morever, we derive requirements in order to meet security against counterfeiting, cloning, impersonation and denial of service attacks.
