What is the best approach to Near Field Communication (NFC)? With many devices, tablets, smart phone, etc. now equipped with near field communication, how secure are the data collected by these NFC enabled devices? What are the data collected? Where are these data stored? How secure are the data where they are stored?
What is the best approach to NFC security?
NFC technology is a wireless communication technology which helps to exchange the data between two devices that are present in the range of few centimeters. The data in NFC is all stored in secured smart chip in an encrypted form. Even though, there are some security attacks like Eavesdropping, Data Corruption, Interception attack, Risk of theft. In Eavesdropping, an intruder can gain access the secured channel established. To prevent this, keep two devices much closer and ensure a secured channel is get connected between them. In Data corruption, criminal can get access to the system and makes the data useless. Interception attack refers to the man-in-the-middle between two NFCs who receives and alters the information. There can be chances of theft of your smart phone also.
