Scalable RFID Security Protocol
Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) system poses serious security and
privacy risks that must be carefully mitigated in order to realize
the numerous benefits the technology has to offer. In this talk
I am going to present different security issues required to secure
a RFID system. I will also describe some desirable characteristics of
RFID security protocols for use in operational distributed environment.
I will then present a security protocol and a layered security framework
and show how it will secure the RFID system while at the same time
provide operational efficiency. The framework has the ability to achieve
compatibility with distributive systems (DS) in a multi reader situation.
The novelty of this work is that it reduces trade-offs caused by
the security protocols such as slow performance, redundant tag read and
scope of intercepting transmission. It does this using a security check
handoff (SCH), improved search techniques and layered architecture.
I will present experimental results to show that the new search technique
is significantly improved compared to the linear search based protocols.

Research Trend of Development Technologies for Automotive Control Software
Electronic control systems (ECUs) have roles to meet safety,
environment and convenient requirements for Vehicles.
ECUs communicate each other via in-vehicle networks and
realize automotive control functions which are implemented
mainly by software embedded in ECUs. Because some of
those functions are safety critical, it is very important to
ensure quality of software. In this talk, recent empirical
research trends of development technologies for high quality
automotive embedded software are introduced. Some of
the main topics are followings.
- Systematic validation of the software specification by graphical software modeling.
- Verification of the implemented source code by static code analysis and model checking.
- Root cause detection in complex embedded systems with abstract model-based diagnosis.
