Last week, RFID tag and inlay manufacturer UPM RFID announced that it has teamed with NFC solutions provider Wireless Sensor Technologies (WST) to provide NFC tags. With this partnership, UPM RFID is providing WST with its NFC tags and inlays that will now be added to WST's NFC readers, software development kits and customization services, including printing and encoding. Although the partnership is not a direct response to the Windows 8 NFC plans, WST notes, it will make it easier for the firm to respond quickly to customers seeking technology solutions built for Windows 8 devices. Wireless Sensor Technologies already provides an NFC app known as GoToTags for computers running Windows 7, enabling users to communicate with an NFC reader plugged into their computer and to use it to read and encode NFC tags. Those in the NFC industry claim that the tap-to-share application signifies that the use of NearFieldCommunication will grow as NFC support in Windows 8 should spur the new community of developers and end-product manufacturers to create new applications. NFC's use in personal devices which may now include tablets and laptops, as well as mobile phones should enable brick-and-mortar stores to link their products with the Internet.
NearFieldCommunication (NFC) is a short-range wireless connectivity technology that enables exchange of data between devices and tags over a distance of up to about 10 centimeters. It’s mainly aimed at making it easier to use services for payment, public transport and data sharing between devices but a number of other uses have been proposed [WIK01, NFC01]:

The proposed model in this research is a strategy pervasive game which incorporates subsystems and the use of Moodle and NearFieldCommunication technology played in any location or scenario where players move and interact through non invasive computational devices. Students taking part in the game compete each other in an open and intelligent environment, for example in the university campus or in the city, using their wits, skills and effort and in the aim to reach their objectives by locating and touching the NFC tags with their mobile devices in order to get a bonus, additionally they have to answer questions on the basis of the knowledge acquired along the course on any of the course subjects that they have taken.
Abstract: NearFieldCommunication (NFC) is an emerging short-range wireless
communication technology that offers great and varied promise in services such as payment, ticketing, gaming, crowd sourcing, voting, navigation, and many others. NFC technology enables the integration of services from a wide range of applications into one single smartphone. NFC technology has emerged recently, and consequently not much academic data are available yet, although the number of academic research studies carried out in the past two years has already surpassed the total number of the prior works combined. This paper presents the concept of NFC technology in a holistic approach from different perspectives, including hardware improvement and optimization, communication essentials and standards, applications, secure elements, privacy and security, usability analysis, and ecosystem and business issues. Further research opportunities in terms of the academic and business points of view are also explored and discussed at the end of each section. This comprehensive survey will be a valuable guide for researchers and academicians, as well as for business in the NFC technology and ecosystem.
Over the last few years, one of the emerging communication technology introduced within mobile devices is the NearFieldCommunication (NFC) technology. Most of the devices in the current market such as smart phones, tablets, and even cameras have been embedded with the NFC functionality. NFC is a newly introduced wireless technology that evolved from the Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) technology Both NFC and RFID are bidirectional short-range communication tools. The contactless interaction between two NFC-enabled devices is approximately 5-10 cm . The technology uses radio waves to identify, track devices and send data in a near-field approach. The technology is widely used as a contactless payment in some grocery shops, food outlets and as a ticketing method for public transportation . The NFC technology is also implemented in library systems in Japan. The Saitama Prefecture in Hanno, Japan has utilized the NFC technology  within their local library. Around 100 tags, or known as “Tatchitagu” is placed on the shelves where the tags contain the necessary information about the specific books. The users are able to review the books or recommend it to another user via the tags.
NearFieldCommunication (NFC) as its name suggests is a shorter range subset of RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) technology. It has gained popularity as the rising development in today’s technical world. What this wireless communication technology offers is a low bandwidth with high frequency allowing data transfer in range of centimeters.
13.56 MHz is the frequency where NFC operates. It can provide speed up to 424 kbps. NFC tags communication and data exchanges are based on standards like ISO 14443 A, MIFARE and FeliCa. It provides high comfort level and ease of use as there are no further configuration steps required to initiate a session to share data.

5.3 Data Modification
Unauthorized changing of data, which results in valid messages, is much more complicated and demands a thorough understanding. As we will point out in the following, data modification is possible only under certain conditions. In order to modify the transmitted data an intruder has to concern single bits of the RF signal. As already mentioned in Section 3.2 data is send in different ways. The feasibility of this attack, that means if it is possible to change a bit of value 0 to 1 or the other way around, is subject to the strength of the amplitude modulation. If 100% modulation is used, it is possible to eliminate a pause of the RF signal, but not to generate a pause where no pause has been. This would demand an impracticable exact overlapping of the attackers signal with the original signal at the receiver’s antenna. However, NearFieldCommunication technology uses modulation of 100% in conjunction with the modified Miller coding which leads to 4 possible cases (see Figure 5.1). The only case, where a bit might be changed by an attacker is, where a 1 is followed by another 1. By filling the pause in two half bit of the RF signal the decoder receives the signal of the third case. Due to the agreement of the preceding bit the decoder would verify a valid one. The other three cases are not susceptible to such an attack.
According to the International Telecommunication Union there are around six billion mobile phone subscriptions in the world today, almost one subscription for every person. These devices are becoming more popular and useful every day, with constant enhancements adding to the vast array of functionality currently on offer. One of the most exciting developments is the introduction of NearFieldCommunication (NFC), which enables smartphones to quickly and securely communicate with other phones and unpowered devices. While wireless communication has been around for a long time in mobile phone terms, it is the ability for NFC enabled smartphones to communicate without power or manual authentication that opens a range of exciting opportunities. Instead of using a smartcards to prove your identify or pay for a product, you can now simply tap your smartphone.
Essentially, the advances Radio Frequency Identification and NearFieldCommunication utilize the same working gauges. Notwithstanding, the key augmentation of RFID is the correspondence mode between two dynamic gadgets. Notwithstanding contactless savvy cards (ISO 14443), which just bolster correspondence between controlled gadgets and inactive labels, NFC likewise gives distributed correspondence .Thus, NFC joins the component to peruse out and copy RFID labels, and moreover, to share information between electronic gadgets that both have dynamic force. NFCIP-1 is a NFC-particular correspondence mode, characterized in the ECMA-340 standard. This mode is proposed for distributed information correspondence between gadgets. In this mode, NFC is tantamount to other short-run correspondence advances, for example, IrDA, in spite of the fact that the physical information exchange component is diverse. The NFCIP-1 mode is isolated into two variations: dynamic mode and aloof mode. In dynamic mode, both members create their own transporter while transmitting information. In uninvolved mode, just the initiator produces a transporter amid interchanges, and the objective gadget uses load adjustment when imparting back to the initiator, in a manner like latent RFID label conduct. This makes it conceivable to spare force in the objective gadget, which is a helpful component if the objective gadget has an exceptionally confined vitality source, for example, a little battery

Abstract: - NFC is one of the recent wireless communication technologies. Nearfieldcommunication is technology for contactless short-range communication based on RFID (Radio Frequency Identification). So there is possibility of eavesdropping, data modification, data corruption, man-in-middle attacks. Solution on these threats is creating a secure channel. The proposed system protocols consider three different factors (Touch and Time) of user behaviour to know the authenticity or authorization of users. In this processing phase, here the touch signals are cleaned for some irregularities via cubic spline smoothing process. Then after the processing, the extracted information represented in vector and stored in database. Here the angle of user touch gets calculated. Also the counter is set for time parameter in NFC devices. All parameter are stored into database. The comparison can be done between stored feature of user and recent feature of user for validation. If user is valid or authenticated then payment or data get transferred to authorized user device. At the end secure communication with NFC device is successful.

NFC provides speed and secure way of communication in hospitals. Doctors equipped with NFC-capable tablet computers can call up all the information on a patient within seconds, without any chance of data getting mixed up. A quick check of the patient’s records before the required treatment or prescription of medicines ensures that the recommendations are just right for the patient in question. Chemists and pharmacists can also quickly check medicines in order to further diminish the risk of side-effects or to identify counterfeits if any doubt arises. In particular, those patients who are frequently in hospitals or doctors' clinics due to long-term or chronic illnesses will greatly appreciate the fact that NFC can also give them insights into the details of the medical procedures which they are undergoing, since there is nothing to stop information on patients' treatments or prescriptions being stored on a chip. Hence, NFC becomes the natural choice for wireless communicating between two medical devices. Medical devices using NearFieldCommunication can transmit data without any delay, since the data generated by medical devices are within the range of NFC. Devices, that resides in the body for long years are called implanted devices. Those devices should be highly energy efficient and conserve as much power as possible. For such applications NFC protocols are well suited as the reader can operate the tag when necessary. NFC is very easy to understand for old patients.NFC works similar to RFID tag in its passive form. NFC can be used to keep tabs on blisters and other drug
