Exemplary Use-Cases

  • Michael RolandEmail author
Part of the T-Labs Series in Telecommunication Services book series (TLABS)


This chapter introduces various practical use-case scenarios of Near Field Communication (NFC). These use-cases are then transformed into more general scenarios. Based on the generalized use-cases, security aspects of NFC applications are identified.
