  • Patent number: 10776198
    Abstract: A Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) tag IC stores an identifier and a check code. The IC determines whether the stored identifier is corrupted by comparing it to the check code. If the stored identifier does not correspond to the check code then the IC may terminate operation or indicate an error. The IC may also reconstruct the correct identifier from the check code.

  • Patent number: 10084597
    Abstract: A cryptographically-enabled RFID tag stores a primary secret key and derives secondary keys from the primary key. A secondary key may be derived by combining the primary key with one or more other parameters using one or more algorithms. The tag uses a derived secondary key to encrypt or electronically sign a tag response sent to a verifying entity. The verifying entity does not know the derived secondary key, but knows the tag primary key and the parameters and algorithms used to derive the secondary key and can derive all of the potential secondary keys. The verifying entity can then attempt to authenticate the tag or tag response by trying potential secondary keys.

  • Patent number: 9928388
    Abstract: Embodiments are directed to sequential encoding for RFID tags. An encoding line transports an RFID tag from the reading zone of a first reader to the reading zone of a second reader. The first reader communicates with the tag, writes a portion of an identifier to the tag, and sends a tag write status to the second reader. The second reader, situated after the first reader, communicates with the tag, receives the tag write status from the first reader, then determines a remaining portion of the identifier to be written to the tag based on the tag write status. The second reader then attempts to write the remaining portion to the tag. If the attempt fails, the second reader initiates an error-handling procedure.

  • Patent number: 9916483
    Abstract: An RFID tag may execute instructions from an authenticated RFID reader. A tag determines a handle and a first parameter, both of which may be random numbers, and sends the handle to a reader. Upon receiving a challenge from the reader, the tag determines and sends a cryptographic response to the challenge based on an algorithm, a tag key, the first parameter, and the challenge. Upon receiving a message with a second parameter and a tag instruction, the tag executes the tag instruction upon verifying that the second parameter derives from the first parameter and the tag handle.

  • Patent number: RE47755
    Abstract: An RFID tag tuning circuit may be capable of adjusting the impedance matching between an RFID integrated circuit (IC) and an antenna on an RFID tag to increase the amount of power that the IC can extract from an incident RF wave. The tuning circuit switches a variable impedance coupling the antenna and the IC between several different impedance settings, where each impedance setting differs from an adjacent impedance setting by a respective impedance step size and at least one impedance step size has a different value than another impedance step size. The tuning circuit may switch the variable impedance by incrementing through a counter, decrementing through the counter, or performing some search algorithm. The tuning circuit may also initialize the variable impedance based on a default impedance setting or a random impedance setting derived from a random counter.
