UHF radio frequency identification (RFID) promises vastly improved data collection and the analysis of physical objects from consumables to patients. Before its full potential can be exploited, it is critical that security surrounding its use is effectively implemented to ensure the data itself is not exploited


A few years ago, it was hard to believe that physical objects could be connected to the Internet in the same way as a file uploaded to a server, with their own IP addresses, but this is becoming a reality by the development of new low-cost technologies that could easily become widespread.


One of the technologies that allows this is UHF radio frequency identification (RFID) technology, which has the advantage of being low cost, but promises computational resources that, in a couple of years, may be adequate to overcome problems linked to information security.

The article describes the design of an RFID system for identification and tracking of items that could be applied in various scenarios with an emphasis on information security.
