Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) has become
a widespread technology to automatically identify objects and with
the development of cloud computing, cloud-based RFID systems
attract more research these days. Several cloud-based RFID
authentication protocols have been proposed to address privacy
and security properties in the environment where the cloud
provider is untrusted therefore the tag’s data are encrypted and
anonymously stored in the cloud database. However, most of the
cloud-based RFID authentication protocols assume secure
communication channels between the reader and the cloud server.
To protect data transmission between the reader and the cloud
server without any help from a third party, this paper proposes a
cloud-based RFID authentication protocol with insecure
communication channels (cloud-RAPIC) between the reader and the cloud server. The cloud-RAPIC protocol preserves tag privacy
even when the tag does not update its identification. The cloudRAPIC protocol has been analyzed using the UPriv model and
AVISPA verification tool which have proved that the protocol
preserves tag privacy and protects data secrecy.
