Abstract: Extreme events like hurricanes, flooding, earthquakes cause massive disruption to society, including large death tolls and property damage. In recent years, many events like the Katrina disaster have shown the importance of efficient disaster management to alleviate the resulting pain and suffering and to mitigate the consequences of the disaster. Disaster management includes a large set of activities including the care of the survivors needs, protection of assets from any further damage and provision of shelter, water, food, and medicines to dislocated people. The creation of effective disaster supply chain to deliver necessary goods to disaster relief organizations is an essential. In this context, this chapter will present the application and benefits of secure RFID to prevent tampering or replacement of the shipment through RFID security threats.
