RFID for Radio Frequency Identification, represents an automated data-capture technology that evolved during the 90’s 20th centuries (Qiwei 2007). It is an effective way to identify traceable objects and is widely applied in many domains (such as SCM, Medicine, Transportation, IoT Applications ...). The Internet of Things is based on a set of technologies and subsystems that require to be interfaced and inter-connected with each other in real-time by adopting appropriate communication, measurement, integration, interoperability, and control standards (Rouchdi et al. 2018). Among the solutions focused on interoperability, middleware is worth mentioning. RFID middleware is a software layer that creates an information exchange network between the RFID equipment network and the various IT applications whose function is to ensure RFID readers management, filtering, consolidation, aggregation, and formatting of RFID data (Ajana et al. 2009). This article aims to suggesting a new RBAC & NoSQL-Based RFID Middleware architecture as a solution to manage the accessibility to RFID data, thus rendering the authentication process much more efficient. The Proposed Middleware Platform architecture combines RFID technology with MongoDB to monitor and process a large number of inbound RFID events generated by RFID tags to provide high volume real-time data flow processing and better interoperability through the data presented in JSON format.
