6 Months of Security Links #2011

leave a comment »

I’m a regular curator of daily links, and like to give overviews of my collection of curated links and posts. This is partly as there are some good sources and articles in here and as I am working on a research project which I started based on a number of books I read.

I’m sure you’ll find something interesting in the items below – there are some gems in the list – and I dare to hazard the guess you might learn something you wanted to know. 🙂

P2P Money

leave a comment »

The French bank Credit Agricole has been testing a peer-2-peer fund transfer method, students can load upto 30 Euros in an electronic purse which is stored in their Nokia 6131 NFC phone. They can make payments in the cafeteria or send money back to their accounts. They can also transfer money from one student to another.

The transfer occurs using NFC and Bluetooth, and the communication is secured by encryption using keys stored on the phone, one assumes PKI, and funds are exchanged without contacting a central server. The logs are downloaded every time a user recharges his/her purse.

“We have a trace of all the money exchanged. There is no loss of money [and] no money created,” says Nicolas Pastorelly. I’ll believe it’s secure once somebody cracks it.
