Sécurité des RFIDs actifs et applications

Abstract : Over the 30 last years, active RFID devices have evolved from nodes dedicated to identification to autonomous nodes that, in addition, sense (from environment or other sources) and exchange data. Consequently, the range of their applications has rapidly grown from identification only to monitoring and real time localisation. In recent years, thanks to their advantages, the use of active RFID nodes for mobile data collection has attracted significant attention. However, in most scenarios, these nodes are unattended in an adverse environments, so data must be securely stored and transmitted to prevent attack by active adversaries: even if the nodes are captured, data confidentiality must be ensured. Furthermore, due to the scarce resources available to nodes in terms of energy, storage and/or computation, the used security solution has to be lightweight. This thesis is divided in two parts. In the first, we will study in details the evolution of active RFID nodes and their security. We will then, present, in the second part, a new serverless protocol to enable MDCs (Mobile Data Collectors), such as drones, to collect data from mobile and static Active RFID nodes and then deliver them later to an authorized third party. The whole solution ensures data confidentiality at each step (from the sensing phase, before data collection by the MDC, once data have been collected by MDC, and during final delivery) while fulfilling the lightweight requirements for the resource-limited entities involved. To assess the suitability of the protocol against the performance requirements, we will implement it on the most resource-constrained secure devices to prove its efficiency even in the worst conditions. In addition, to prove the protocol fulfills the security requirements, we will analyze it using security games and we will also formally verify it using the AVISPA and ProVerif tools.
