HCE: Repeating the Same Mistakes?

  1. 1. HCE: Repeating the same mistakes? Neal Michie Technical Business Development Director Helixion Ltd June 17, 2014| Edinburgh
  2. 2. HCE: Repeating the same mistakes? • NFC is a very powerful technology supporting a wide variety of use cases. • Market became focused on using it with a secure element to “emulate” payment cards. – To the detriment of other uses. • Only now are we starting to see a range of uses come to market. • Market requires this complete range to develop an eco-system and start the move to the next level of usability where we tap our phone rather than tapping our phone’s screen.
  3. 3. HCE: Repeating the same mistakes? • HCE (Host Card Emulation) provides a means to emulate smartcards without the need for a secure element. • This includes many types of smartcard not just payment cards. • Payment is arguably the hardest type of card to emulate as consumers rightly expect a high level of security. • Yet the focus seems to be on giving the banks away to bypass the secure element and so the mobile network operators.
  4. 4. HCE: Repeating the same mistakes? With HCE are we endanger of repeating the same mistakes and only focusing on the payment use case? As with other forms of NFC, the reality is that HCE opens up many opportunities of which payment is just one.
