Abstract

Near Field Communication (NFC) is widely used as a contactless communication technology in mobile phones for mobile payments. However, achieving payment security is challenging due to the authentication between the NFC-enabled mobile phone users and the merchants. Attackers can use the vulnerabilities of card payment transactions to compromise the NFC communication message and then transmit the wrong payment information to the communicators. An efficiency key authentication scheme is proposed to help NFC-enabled mobile payment communication using bilinear pairing. The proposed scheme can furnish a secure environment for NFC mobile payments by providing unlinkability and unforgeability functions to prevent attack scenarios.
