Securing mobile payments


Smartphones are now central to our lives. We manage our personal and business affairs, watch movies, track our health and, increasingly, make payments.

Banks and other issuers now have a choice to make. They can offer mobile payments to their customers by supporting the Giant Pays, or integrating contactless payments into their existing apps.

This eBook demonstrates the reasons why HCE is a compelling option, the challenges of implementation, and how to defend against attacks with security tools.
