A New Secure Lightweight Authentication Protocol for NFC mobile Payment

Reham Abdellatif Abouhogail


As mobile applications grow, securing these applications become an important factor for their success. Especially, when these applications are related to financial transactions. Nowadays, mobile payment that is based on NFC technology is considered one of these important topics. In this paper, we propose A New Secure and Lightweight Authentication Protocol for NFC mobile Payment (NSLA) protocol. NSLA protocol presents a new method to update the users’ identities and the valid session keys, which preserves the privacy and ensures the integrity of the system. The presented performance analysis shows that NSLA protocol satisfies low computation overhead. Moreover, the security analysis proves that NSLA protocol has an immunity against replay attack, brute force attack, denial of service attack, and others types of attacks.
