Enabling Mobile Payments on Linux - Samuel Ortiz, Intel

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

With the Linux kernel now supporting NFC, a natural step forward seems to be enabling mobile payments, either cloud or NFC based. To do so we need to give payment applications access to secure elements, via the kernel. At the moment, both the secure element kernel interface and a generic secure element library are missing from any standard Linux distribution, effectively keeping Linux away from the mobile payments market. We will first go through a brief tour of the mobile payments ecosystem and see how it is actually implemented. Then we will describe the proposed kernel APIs for discovering, enabling and talking to secure elements. Finally we will discuss about the possible options for bringing a hardware agnostic secure element library to standard Linux distributions, and how it could be used to implement payment applications on Linux.


Samuel Ortiz

Software Engineer, Intel
I work as a software engineer at the Intel Open Source Technology Center. There I maintain a few kernel subsystems, among them the NFC and the MFD ones. I also maintain and implement the NFC userspace stack and mess with connection managers. My speaking experience include giving talks about various connectivity and wireless topics at the Embedded Linux Conference, the Plumbers Conference or the Automotive Linux Summit one, among others.
