Security of mobile devices, applications and transactions
Mobile devices like smartphones and tablets have been conquering the market over the past 5 years. Consequently, a large amount of user transactions have been moved from PC-based environments to mobile devices. This includes banking, trading, shopping, eGovernment as well as other security sensitive procedures. As outlined in the recent European Commission communication related to eCommerce, the usage of online services and eCommerce opens up a huge business potential. Security and interoperability are key factors in deploying those services successfully.
Eurosmart, the voice of the smart security industry, proposes to explain how security of mobile devices, applications and transactions can be achieved. The European smart security industry already has the solutions to provide strong protection against mobile fraud. For high security applications – like eCommerce - the smart secure elements will continue to play an important role. New technologies like the Open Mobile API and the Trusted Execution Environment will act as complements to facilitate system wide security.
Eurosmart will publish on 20 June 2012 a comprehensive paper on Security of mobile devices, applications and transactions, with policy recommendations. Jan Eichholz Technology Consulting agent and Eurosmart member, will make a presentation at the event “Security and Privacy for the Digital World – Solutions from the Smart Security Industry” on the same day: http://www.eurosmart.com/index.php/component/content/article/184.html
