NFC – The Non-Radio Bits

Over the past couple of years I’ve been working at BlackBerry as a Security Researcher, working mainly on BlackBerry OS 10 devices. One of the really interesting projects that I’ve worked on is NFC (Near Field Communications) and I’m especially interested in the role that smart cards play in NFC mobile payments. My employer was kind enough to let me present some of what we’ve been working on at DC4420 in London and explain some of the technology that is used in contactless debit cards, oyster travel cards and mobile SIM cards.

Thanks to Tony and Major Malfunction for organising the event and thanks to everyone who came – really interesting questions from the audience.
