The Institute for Applied Information Processing and Communications (IAIK) of Graz, University of Technology (TU Graz) acts as researching partner for the field of RFID security. Its main research interest in the BRIDGE project is to enhance passive RFID tags with standardised crypto algorithms functionality thus facilitating secure authentication of tags (and objects they are attached to). The involved group (VLSI and Security) is highly specialized in development and implementation of crypto modules for resource restricted environments in digital hardware. TUG is task leader of the tasks " Tag Security" and " Anti-Cloning Tag" in the Security work package.
