This article proposes an efficient and secure authentication protocol for secure and low-cost RFID systems in random oracles. Security is one of the prime concerns of RFID system. Proposed protocol relies on Elliptic Curve Discrete Logarithm Problem (ECDLP) to achieve security. The protocol achieves the most important security goals scalability, anonymity and anti-cloning for RFID system. A password based protocol has vulnerability on fixed password. This can be exploited by threats. In the proposed protocol, there is a provision to change the password of the Tags. Hence the vulnerability can be reduced in an acceptable level. Computation cost is very less as compare to the other protocols.
