D3.7 A Structured Collection on Information and Literature on Technological and Usability Aspects of Radio Frequency Identification (RFID)

 Radio Frequency IDentification (RFID)


Executive Summary


This document gives an overview on Radio Frequency Identification (RFID). It is the first of currently (October 2006) planned two FIDIS deliverables and one declaration in the context of RFID. D3.7 is the technical background document for the following documents: 


  • D7.7 “RFID, Profiling and AmI”,  

  • D3.6 “Study on ID Documents” and  

  • D12.3 “Holistic Privacy Framework for RFID”.  


For this reason certain aspects of RFID such as the use of data generated by RFID systems for profiling purposes and in the context of AmI and privacy aspects of RFID are not part of this deliverable. In addition this deliverable addresses a reader that is interest in technical details of this technology, though by far it can not be comprehensive. A more general introduction can be found in the Wikipedia.


In chapter the physical properties of RFID, types of RFID systems basing on the physical properties and operational aspects of RFID systems are introduced and described. Chapter describes currently known security threats for RFID systems, countermeasures and related cost aspects. Chapter gives a brief overview on current areas of application for RFID. To put a light on status quo and trends of development in the private sector in the context of RFID in chapter the results of a study carried out in 2004 and 2005 are summarised. Chapter describes relevant standards in the context of RFID. This deliverable also includes a bibliography publicly available at, see also chapter .
