on RFID and
Light-Weight Crypto

Graz University of Technology  


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 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 handout with the submissions will be provided to all participants. Authors interested to give a presentation should prepare a submission of at most 12 pages, using LaTeX.

Submissions should be sent to

IAIK Krypto Group
