- What are the threats to sensitive NFC services?
- What security does a mobile device offer?
- Where do HCE and tokenization fit in?
- Who is responsible for ensuring the security of a sensitive NFC service?
- Which certification requirements are relevant to the NFC services landscape today?
- Can NFC security evaluations be combined and simplified?
- What is the role of NFC security certification in the future?
