Executive Summary

The project developed a prototype to overcome the issues of the existing RFID based security systems by using a password to first authenticate the user of the tag and a one-time random number that is being transmitted wirelessly between the tag and the reader. In addition to providing authentication, the fix password provides a user friendly security system and a good level of HCI (Human Computer Interface). In such a system a stolen car, a stolen e-tag, a re-generated e-tag or eavesdropping would not benefit the attacker. The developed prototype has been tested and implemented on one site. Based on the feedback from the initial tests/implementation, further improvement/development has been made also. The developed solution was related to the high demand market of security and has a wider impact on national interest, businesses, government and public in general.
