The use of near field communication (NFC) technology for contactless mobile transactions has become popular in the past decade with the availability of this technology in mobile devices. Today, there are millions of the NFC-enabled mobile handsets in the market, with mobile handset manufacturers and mobile network operators enabling m-wallet solutions using the secure elements (SEs) that they own, thus can remotely control, on the devices. While this approach gives full control to the SE owner to activate any mobile transaction system on a device, having a more flexible approach would increase the benefits that end users could obtain from this technology in a variety of use cases. In this paper, we introduce a novel protocol for the NFC-based mobile transaction procedure, which uses tamper-resistant SEs that are already installed at the transaction terminals, and is mobile handset manufacturer and mobile network operator-independent. We evaluate and show the feasibility of the use of our proposed model with common mobile electronic payment scenarios. The evaluation results demonstrate that the proposed solution is promising for adoption as a secure NFC transaction model, which will have applications in various security-sensitive IoT scenarios, including but not limited to, mobile identification, healthcare, payment, and access control.


Having 4G, Enabling Cloud Based Execution for NFC based Financial Transactions
Turk, Ismail; Coşar, Ahmet (2015-11-03)
Near Field Communication (NFC) is a technology which has found wide use in recent years in Mobile Sector. NFC enables your mobile handset to become your secure wallet and it also converts your mobile to a device that easily communicates with NFC tags in a contactless way to trigger any desired action such as approving your credit card payment without requiring you to type your pin number. The Secure Element is a component in NFC which is a tamper-resistant device used to store sensitive user credentials (su...
NFC feature box: an open, nfc enabler independent mobile payment and identification method
Türk, İsmai; Kesim Çiçekli, Nihan.; Department of Computer Engineering (2019)
The use of Mobile Devices for electronic payment has increased significantly in the last decade. Near Field Communication (NFC) mobile payment is gaining popularity and it is widely considered to be the technology that will turn smartphones into m-wallets. While a typical wallet contains identification, loyalty, public transport and credit cards, m-wallet solutions currently have well-defined standards for credit card enrollment and usage only. In this thesis, we explore and present the main reason for this...
Lithium-intercalation oxides for rechargeable batteries
Ceder, Gerbrand; VanderVen, Anton; Aydınol, Mehmet Kadri (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 1998-09-01)
Since the introduction of the LixC/LiCoO2 cell, rechargeable lithium batteries have become the technology of choice for applications where volume or weight are a consideration (e.g., laptop computers and cell phones). The focus of current research in cathode-active materials is on less-expensive or higher-performance materials than LiCoO2. This article illustrates how first-principles calculations can play a critical role in obtaining the understanding needed to design improved cathode oxides.
Design of a context aware security model for preventing relay attacks using NFC enabled mobile devices
Çavdar, Davut; Betin Can, Aysu; Department of Information Systems (2020)
Near Field Communication (NFC) is a promising communication technology used in smart mobile devices. As an effective and flexible communication technology, NFC is frequently used in innovative solutions nowadays such as payment, access control etc. Because of the nature of these transactions, security is an important issue since NFC is used in critical applications such as payment and access control. There are several attacks mentioned in literature against NFC-enabled applications, yet, none of the securit...
An Efficient graph-theoretical approach for interactive mobile image and video segmentation
Şener, Ozan; Alatan, Abdullah Aydın; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2013)
Over the past few years, processing of visual information by mobile devices getting more affordable due to the advances in mobile technologies. Efficient and accurate segmentation of objects from an image or video leads many interesting multimedia applications. In this study, we address interactive image and video segmentation on mobile devices. We first propose a novel interaction methodology leading better satisfaction based on subjective user evaluation. Due to small screens of the mobile devices, error ...
