This volume contains the papers presented at the 2010 Workshop on RFID Security (RFIDsec'10 Asia) held in Singapore on February 22–23, 2010. The workshop was hosted by the School of Information Systems at Singapore Management University (SMU), and co-hosted by the Institute for Infocomm Research and Singapore Institute of Manufacturing Technology. The Honorary Chair was Steven Miller, and the General Chairs were Robert H. Deng and Lee Eng Wah.
RFIDSec'10 Asia is aligned with the earliest RFID security workshop (RFIDsec) that has been devoted to address the security and privacy issues in Radio Frequency Identification (RFID). Starting in 2005, RFIDsec has been organized as a series of workshops held in Graz (2005/06), Malaga (2007), Budapest (2008), and Leuven (2009). RFIDSec'10 Asia is the second edition of the series of workshops held in Asia followed by RFIDsec'09 Asia in Taipei (2009).
RFIDsec'10 Asia provided an international forum for sharing original research results and application experiences among researchers in the field of RFID system security. This year we had an excellent program that consists of 12 high-quality papers, including four invited papers, which were selected after a rigorous reviewing process by the Program Committee members and external reviewers. Covered are many interesting topics, including unconditionally secure RFID systems, dynamic RFID tag authentication, RFID ownership transfer, fingerprinting RFID tags, and secure RFID-supported supply chains. This is the first year for RFIDsec Asia to have the formal proceedings published by IOS Press in the Cryptology and Information Security (CIS) Series. Selected papers in the RFIDsec'10 Asia proceedings will be invited for submission to a special issue of the Journal of Computer Security.
RFIDsec'10 Asia was made possible only through the contributions from many individuals and organizations. We thank all the authors who submitted papers. We gratefully acknowledge the Program Committee members and external reviewers for the time and effort they put into reviewing the submissions. We further thank the workshop organization committee, especially, Ying Qiu for managing the web site for paper submission, review, and notification, Tieyan Li and Kevin Chiew for designing and managing the workshop web site, Chew Hong Ong for workshop registration, and Wei He for local arrangement. Last but not least, we are grateful to the SMU School of Information Systems for sponsoring the workshop.
