NFC Implementations Security
Authors: Andrey Plastunov and Roman Bazhin
The NFC technology is gradually becoming an integral part of our activities in many areas, from payments in public transport to intelligent home technologies. It is certainly convenient. But is it secure enough?
The talk will cover the protocol of NFC devices communication and the way they operate in NFC mode. The speakers will outline the attack surface and consider an NFC threat model. The concept will be exemplified by a MiTM attack against an Android phone via a specially crafted NFC transmitter based on Arduino.
