A Server Based Wireless Wallet Enabling Secure PaymentTransactions
Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
At present there is a desire from content providers and merchants for a mechanism that would allow them to enhance trade over the World Wide Web. Security issues inhibit the development of e-commerce hence a secure and user accepted payment service would be embraced.
This paper introduces a solution for how secure payment transactions can be made. The server based wireless wallet is presented as a solution by which the user could replace his wallet with a SIM Application Toolkit enabled cellular phone. The wireless wallet constitutes the central part of an e-commerce gateway, which enables the application to provide secure sessions between the Mobile Station and the wireless wallet. It consists of a Wireless Internet Gateway, Transport Server and the wireless wallet. A Wireless Internet Browser stored on the SIM makes secure payment transactions possible. This browser includes a security plug-in enabling encryption on the SIM.
The wireless wallet concept is realized and verified by a demonstration implementation and an analysis on what would be required from a live system.
The conclusions drawn from this analysis will be that it is technically feasible to deploy the wireless wallet however before this can be done further security enhancements are needed.
