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.

Noriyoshi SANO is a research manager in Software Science Lab., Information and Electronics Research Div., Toyota Central R&D Labs., Inc. He received his BSc, ME degrees from Nagoya University in 1982, 1984, respectively. He joined Toyota Central R&D Labs., Inc. in 1984. His research interests include technologies for analysis and verification of embedded software.
