Part of the T-Labs Series in Telecommunication Services book series (TLABS)

Abstract

This chapter summarizes basic concepts of smartcards, Near Field Communication (NFC) and payment cards. Moreover, it gives an overview of various protocols and standards that are necessary to understand the operational details of NFC applications.

Keywords

Near Field Communication Uniform Resource Identifier Secure Element Subscriber Identity Module Card Card Emulation 
These keywords were added by machine and not by the authors. This process is experimental and the keywords may be updated as the learning algorithm improves.
