Titel / Title: Enhancing Security and Usability Features of NFC
Abstrakt Abstract:

Near Field Communication (NFC) is a short range
wireless communication protocol which is primarily
intended to be used on mobile phones. Building upon
existing infrastructure of RFID, NFC brings simplicity
for connection of mobile devices, service initiation,
mobile payment and ticketing. However, NFC still
remains as a field that number of researches done are limited. The aim of this paper was to provide solutions
for the problems of NFC that cause security risks and
hurt user experience. To reach this goal we have
reviewed the current literature and implemented an
NFC application that we have used throughout our user
experience tests. This application provides a practical
way to store and transfer contact information using
NFC. The results of the study indicated that usability
and security suffer from lack of user awareness and
physical design of the mobile phones.
