    Abstract

    In this paper the lightweight many-to-many authentication protocol, that uses Near Field Communications as a carrier technology is proposed. The solution works without any user interaction and can be applied for almost any data storage device: NFC or RFID tag, USB-flash drive, etc. The major novelty of the system is real-time encryption key generation algorithm. This approach doesn't require any computation power on the tag, trusted third parties or secure link between tag and information system. So far, the mentioned features transforms to significant advantages of the proposed solution, while compared to existing analogues: OAuth, Opacity and LMAP. At the same time, the integrity of key sequences is not guarantied, that brings motivation for future research in the field.
