Abstract: As a key technology for indentifying objects in the Internet of Things (IoT),radio frequency identification (RFID) technology has been widely used because of its advantages,such as low cost and easy to carry.The RFID system based on cloud storage technology has a more widely application market comparing with the traditional RFID system,but its security and privacy issues are more serious.At the same time,many existing group authentication protocols don’t meet the lightweight requirements,and have the lost synchronization problem in key updating process.This paper proposed a cloud-based lightweight RFID tag group authentication protocol.This protocol is based on the Hash function,which not only resolves these issues above,but also filters out the invalid and fake labels.Finally,this paper conducted the formal analysis of the proposed protocol by using BAN logic.The security target analysis shows that the proposed protocol can resist the multi-DOS attack and other common attacks,and possesses the forward security.

Key words: Cloud database, RFID, Lightweight authentication protocol, Group authentication, BAN logic
