Day by day the importance of Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) systems is increasing for its powerful capabilities in
automatic identification, localization and access control of the objects. However, the RFID techniques are plagued to security and
privacy issues due to underlying wireless communication channel. In order to come up with a solution, we propose an efficient
authentication scheme which uses pseudorandom number generators (PRNG) and some simple cryptographic operations.
Moreover, as the current generation tags come with in-built pseudo random generators, the implementations of these operations
are possible with low complexity. The secret information stored inside the tags is communicated in a more secure way ensuring
confidentiality, integrity, and authentication. The security of our proposed scheme is analyzed against different attacks on RFID
and with the performance of some existing protocols. Experimental results show a significant improvement in security with
average cost, when compared with the existing techniques.
