S-SPAN: Secure Smart Posters in Android Using NFC
Source: Carnegie Mellon University
Smart posters are a promising new use case for NFC-enabled mobile devices, but to date there has been a general lack of security mechanisms for NFC smart posters. The authors present S-SPAN - a secure smart poster system consisting of three parts: an administrative web interface for managing posters, a backend server for storing and serving data, as well as an Android application for end-users. S-SPAN enforces confidentiality and integrity of smart poster data as well as authentication/authorization of administrators and end-users, thus ensuring that only authorized users can access the content.
