Security and privacy on low-cost RFID deployments is focusing the attention of researchers due to the progressive adoption by retailers, making the RFID a real ubiquitous technology. Besides the retail sector, other logistics industries are starting to improve their processes with this technology like the postal companies, supposed to be one of the largest RFID sector. This paper is focused on the postal model of EPC RFID technology, and its security and privacy implications. We define a postal RFID threat context and propose measures to improve security and privacy in current RFID deployments.
