Abstract: The deployment and management of an ecient supply chain is one of the most important elements in the response to a natural disaster. The chaotic environment and degraded conditions in the aftermath of a natural disaster are severe challenges to the task of maintaining the supply chain and delivering the correct equipment and goods to the right places and at the right time. RFID has been increasingly considered, in the context of natural disaster scenarios to improve the management of the supply chain. An important requirement is security. RFID devices must not be tampered with and they should be resistant to security attacks to ensure that the supply chain is not disrupted by criminals and that goods are not stolen or tampered with. In this context, this paper will present the application and benefits of secure RFID for disaster supply chains. This paper will analyze practical utilization of this type of device in the resolution of emergency crises to guarantee the reliability of sealing of the goods and their identification. The establishment of a logistics tracking framework based on secure RFID has the potential to greatly increase the eectiveness of future emergency crises response operations.
