Improved Cryptographic Processor Designs for Security in RFID and Other Ubiquitous Systems

2009, Doctor of Philosophy, Case Western Reserve University, EECS - Computer Engineering.
In order to provide security in ubiquitous, passively powered systems, especially RFID tags in the supply chain, improved asymmetric key cryptographic processors are presented, tested and compared with others from the literature. The proposed processors show a 12%-20% area and a 31%-45% time improvement. A secure protocol is also presented to minimize cryptographic effort and communication between tag and reader. A set of power management techniques is also presented to match processor performance to available power, resulting in greater range and responsiveness of RFID tags.
