( is the sixth edition of a
series of workshops held in Graz, Malaga, Budapest and Leuven. In 2010
it will take place in Istanbul, Turkey.

The workshop focuses on approaches to solve security and data-protection
issues in advanced contactless technologies like RFID. It stresses
implementation aspects imposed by resource constraints.

Topics of the conference include but are not limited to:

-New applications for secure RFID systems
-Data protection and privacy-enhancing techniques for RFID 
-Cryptographic protocols for RFID
-Authentication protocols
-Key update mechanisms
-Scalability issues
-Integration of secure RFID systems 
-Middleware and security
-Public-key Infrastructures
-Case studies
-Resource-efficient implementation of cryptography 
-Small-footprint hardware
-Low-power architectures
-Attacks on RFID systems
-RFID security hardware e.g. RFID with PUF, RFID Trojans, .
