Workshop on RFID and Lightweight Crypto

The use of state-of-the-art cryptographic methods on RFID tags opens a new range of applications for these tags and for cryptography. The aims of the workshop are to increase the awareness for cryptographic methods and solutions among RFID developers, and for the requirements of this heavily constrained environment among cryptographers. The workshop will be held in Graz, Austria at the Graz University of Technology.

The workshop will bring together researchers and developers from industry and academia, in order to exchange novel ideas and experiences. The scope includes, but is not limited to, the following topics:

  • Applications for RFID tags
  • Cryptographic algorithms for constrained environments
  • Cryptographic protocols adapted to RFID applications
  • Low-power implementations

The workshop program will contain invited talks and contributed presentations. There will be no formal proceedings, but a workshop handout with abstracts will be provided to all participants.

The following speakers have confirmed their participation:
* Gildas Avoine
* Dieter Gollmann
* Ari Juels
