Security in NFC with Wi‐Fi Protected Setup as a use
MetadataShow full item record
Near Field Communication is a short‐range communication channel that is one of the most promising technologies around. One of the purposes for this technology is to simplify first‐time connections to other wireless technologies, like Wi‐Fi and Bluetooth. In this thesis we will incorporate Near Field Communication in an 802.11 network for a hotel. We will show how this technology will be used in a scenario like this, where guests will get easily access to the hotels wireless network through their personal devices. NFC will be used for initiation, authentication and exchange of configuration settings. With this new technology incorporated, a threat analysis and risk assessment will be performed. This is to acknowledge what needs to be protected in terms of assets and points of attacks. We will set some requirements for the system to make it even more secure and propose some solutions for implementation to improve protection of our assets.
