Project number

Short description
Mobile e-commerce is the ability to perform commercial transactions from a mobile phone or other wireless device. Although it is predicted that the volume of personal mobile e-commerce will exceed that from fixed computers by 2005, the security technology which is vital for its success has not been agreed. This project will develop a practical security architecture for mobile e-commerce, with security equal to that for fixed e-commerce, which inter-operates readily with fixed e-commerce technologies, and which provides sufficient stability to be built into mass-produced mobile phones. A prototype implementation will be produced to prove the concepts.
