Abstract

This paper highlights the benefits and drawbacks of NFC's different operating modes with regard to their usability and security. Based on an analysis of both traditional and new communication concepts for mobile NFC devices, their current availability and, specifically, the features to provide security are evaluated. The result of this evaluation is a comparison between the availability, the usability and the security of NFC's different operating modes.
