Because of vast highly sensitive business information within RFID system, there is an urgent need for an effective and secure protocol to ensure the interests of various stakeholders. In this paper, we propose a scalable authentication protocol to provide classification protection. GNY logic formal approach is used to verify the design correctness of the protocol. The performance is evaluated and compared with other related protocols in three aspects: storage, computation requirement and communication overload. The analysis shows that the proposed protocol need less computation requirement and memory with acceptable communication overload. The conclusion indicates that the protocol is reliable and more scalable in RFID-based sensor systems.
