In this paper, we present an anonymous authentication scheme that allows RFID tags to authenticate to readers without disclosing the tag identity or any other information that allows tags to be traced. The properties of our scheme are very useful for a variety of access control systems, where it is sufficient or mandatory to verify the authenticity of a tag without inferring its identity.
