This volume contains the papers presented at the 2011 Workshop on RFID Security (RFIDse'11 Asia) held in Wuxi, China on April 6–8, 2011.
The workshop was hosted by Peking University, and co-hosted by Penn state University. The Honorary Chairs were Fuqing Yang from Peking University and Weize Yang from Wuxi Government. The General Chairs were Xueming Tan from Wuxi Government, Zhong Chen from Peking University, Qi Zhang from RFID China Alliance, and Dave Hall from Penn State University.
RFIDsec Asia is the Asia version of 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), Leuven (2009) and Istanbul (2010).
RFIDsec'11 Asia is the third edition of the Asia series of workshops followed by RFIDsec'10 Asia in Singapore (2010) and RFIDsec'09 Asia in Taipei (2009).
RFIDsec'11 Asia provides a forum to address the fundamental issues in theory and practice related to security and privacy issues, designs, standards, and case studies in the development of RFID systems, EPCglobal network, and Internet of Things (IoT). This year we had an excellent program that consists of one invited paper, and nine regular papers, which were selected after a rigorous reviewing process by the Program Committee members and external reviewers. The papers cover many interesting topics in the realm of RFID security, including distance bounding and mutual authentication protocols, public key cryptography implementation and Internet of Things. All RFIDsec'11 Asia papers are published formally by IOS Press in the Cryptology and Information Security Series (CISS). A number of selected papers in the RFIDsec'11 Asia proceedings may be invited for submission to a special issue of an international journal.
The success of RFIDsec'11 Asia was made through the contributions from many individuals and organizations. We thank all authors who submitted their scientific papers. We are grateful to all Program Committee members and external reviewers for the time and effort they put into reviewing and commenting. Further on, we thank the Organization Committee, especially, Guangyi Shi for managing the workshop website. Last but not least, we are grateful to the Peking university Wuxi campus for sponsoring the workshop.
