RFID technology has become increasingly popular in todays society and plays an important role in daily life. However, the exploitation of this technology requires practical and secure solutions to overcome certain issues.. In the case of RFID systems, privacy protection and scalability are two conflicting goals. Nevertheless, in this paper we propose a hexagonal cell based distributed architecture which ensures improved scalability while maintaining privacy. The hexagonal architecture allows readers to co-operate with one another to identify tags without compromising scalability. Furthermore, this architecture uses serverless protocols for security assurance, cutting down set up and maintenance cost as well as traffic to server. To the best of our knowledge, we propose a combination of servered and serverless techniques within the same distributed architecture for the first time. Our proposed distributed scalable architecture together with the secure serverless protocols can be used in numerous real life situations.
