The pharmaceutical industry suffers increasingly from product counterfeits. Although RFID technology can be used as a basis for an integer and counterfeit-resistant pharmaceutical supply chain, the total costs of ownership are hardly specified. We define specific levels of security and corresponding fields of operation to value privacy of customers and supply chain participants. Our contribution defines a cost model for enabling an RFID-aided supply chain and assigns costs to establish a certain level of security.
