Workshop on RFID Security and Privacy
Steering Committee


RFIDsec is the earliest workshop devoted to security and privacy in Radio Frequency Identification (RFID). Starting in 2005, RFIDsec is today the reference workshop in the RFID field with partipants from all over the world. RFIDsec aims to bridge the gap between cryptographic researchers and RFID developers through invited talks and contributed presentations. Two third of the attendees so come from academia while the rest come from industry.

The workshop focuses on approaches to solve security and data-protection issues in advanced contactless technologies. The scope includes, but is not limited to, the following topics:

  • New applications for secure RFID systems
  • Privacy-enhancing techniques for RFID
  • Cryptographic protocols for RFID
  • Integration of secure RFID systems
  • Cryptographic algorithms for constrained environments

Since 2010, proceedings of the workshop are published by Springer-Verlag in the series LNCS.

Edition 2016

The 12th edition of RFIDsec will take place in Hong Kong, from November 30 to December 2, 2016. More information can be obtained on the website of RFIDsec 2016.

RFIDsec Asia

Following the success of RFIDsec, a similar event, aligned with RFIDsec, is organized every year in Asia. In 2014, the so-called RFIDsec Asia 2014 will be organized on November 27-28, 2014, in Hualien (Taiwan). Previous editions of RFIDsec Asia took place in Taipei (Taiwan) in 2009, Singapore in 2010, Wuxi (China) in 2011, Tapei (Taiwan) in 2012, and Guangzhou (China) in 2013.
