    ABSTRACT: With the expansion of versatile privacy-sensitive RFID applications a clear need for new identification schemes has been established. In particular, new attribute-based authentication schemes as reminiscences of Microsoft’s U-Prove technology were proposed. We survey related works and discuss a recent scheme for selective disclosure of attributes providing the designation of verification.
    A scenario of mobile payments is also considered and the use of NFC-enabled phones for proving credentials.

    Lejla Batina received the Ph.D. degree in engineering in 2005 from Katholieke Universiteit Leuven, Belgium and the M.Sc. degree in mathematics from the University of Zagreb Croatia (1995). She has also studied at the Technische Universiteit Eindhoven, TU/e  (Mathematics for industry, grad. in 2001).Since 2009, she is an assistant professor in the Digital Security group of the Radboud University, Nijmegen and a member of the COSIC group of the Katholieke Universiteit Leuven. Before starting her PhD at KU Leuven, on secure hardware implementations of public-key cryptography, she worked as a cryptographer for a hardware company in The Netherlands (2001-2003).
    After obtaining her Ph.D. she was a postdoctoral researcher at the COSIC group, at K.U. Leuven2006-2009. Her research interests are in lightweight cryptography and side-channel analysis and countermeasures. She has published over 60 refereed papers in these areas and served at 50+ program committees.
