We propose an upload protocol for single-use RFID for achieving wireless single-use applications such as notification of an opened envelope. The single-use RFID proposed here has the following features: an RFID to work actively, a limited number of data transfers, low-bit data transfer, and long-range radio-communication by VHF/UHF frequency. For single-use RFID applications, the upload protocol should be implementable on a small circuit and secure from remote attacks. Therefore, we propose pre-computation of transmitting/receiving frames and integration of message exchanges to reduce computation and communication without losing security. An evaluation showed that the amount of computation and communication of RFID was reduced by the proposed protocol.
