In this article, we examine the role played by RFID in enabling user-oriented networked applications. We explain why RFID is seen to be an important building block of the "Internet of Things" and examine how RFID, assisted by the deployment of NFC devices, is increasingly facilitating user-oriented, Internet-based application architectures. Finally, we look at the high-level security challenges that these user-oriented application architectures will need to address.
