Copyright © 2012 John Wiley & Sons, Ltd. Pseudorandom number generation (PRNG) is the basic security tool for the EPC Gen2 tags. Commercial EPC Gen2 PRNGs have been analyzed obtaining link layer communication data. Evidences have been found that different commercial integrated circuits use the same PRNG algorithm. Copyright © 2012 John Wiley & Sons, Ltd. Pseudorandom generators are the main security tool in EPC Gen2 systems. Besides its statistical compliance with the standard, no further information is provided on its design, performance or generation scheme. We empirically analysed EPC Gen2 pseudorandom sequences using a novel experimental setup. From our analysis, we obtained evidences that pseudorandom number generators used in different commercial integrated circuits use the same algorithm. This paper presents the results of this analysis.
