Relay attacks on card payment: vulnerabilities and defences

Steven J. Murdoch

Relay attacks allow criminals to use credit or debit cards for fraudulent transactions, completely bypassing protections in today's electronic payment systems. This talk will show how using easily available electronics, it is possible to carry out such attacks. Also, we will describe techniques for improving payment systems, developed by Saar Drimer and me, in order to close this vulnerability.
