A Secure Prepaid Wireless Micropayment Protocol

Supakorn Kungpisdan, Bala Srinivasan, Phu Dung Le

Abstract

In this paper, a secure prepaid micropayment protocol which is suitable for wireless networks is introduced. The proposed protocol employs a secure cryptographic technique that reduces all parties’ computation and satisfies transaction security properties, including non-repudiation. This offers the ability to resolve disputes among parties. Compared to existing micropayment protocols, all parties’ secret information are well-protected. Finally, we perform an analysis to demonstrate that the proposed protocol has better performance than existing micropayment protocols. As a result, the proposed protocol can be well-operated on limited capability wireless devices.
