  • We present a metaheuristic-based attack against the traceability of an ultra-lightweight authentication protocol for RFID environments called SLMAP, and analyse its implications. The main interest of our approach is that it is a complete black-box technique that doesn't make any assumptions on the components of the underlying protocol and can thus be easily generalised to analyse many other proposals.
