CS Winter Seminar: Secure Protocols for Electronic Commerce

Shervin Erfani, Ph.D
University of Windsor, Canada

Secure Protocols for eCommerce


Electronic commerce, commonly known as e-commerce, is buying and selling of products or services over electronic systems such as the Internet and other computer networks. It draws on such technologies as electronic funds transfer, supply chain management, Internet marketing, online transaction processing, electronic data interchange (EDI), inventory management systems, and automated data collection systems. E-commerce technically used the WWW at least at one point in the transaction\'s life-cycle: it may encompasses a wider range of technologies such as e-mail, mobile devices and telephones as well. In this presentation, we discuss all aspects of e-commerce including security attacks and the required security protocols and services, use of Smart Cards, RFID tags, PayPal, and Bit Coins. Finally, the effects of e-commerce in society and its role in changing the direction of technologies, taxation, international trades, and the revision of the whole value chain are discussed.
