Role in the project

As part of the BOSS demonstrator test-bed, EGROUP provides for NFC readers and NFC enabled passenger mobile devices with eID function, and the necessary software components to integrate with the core BOSS security and information system.
EGROUP will bring the latest NFC-enabled mobile devices into the testbed implementation. This will enable a demonstration where the passenger uses an NFC-compliant device to:

  • connect securely to the wireless LAN after exchanging configuration data via NFC
  • connect to the internet or passenger information services
  • access higher valued services requiring identification and authentication, using the eID function of the SIM/WIM of an NFC-enabled mobile phone

  • electronically sign transactions (e.g., authorize the payment for a passenger service) transferred to the NFC-compliant signing device (proximity card, mobile phone)

The electronic signature together with a contactless identification solution considerably facilitates the use of mobile devices when delivering e-services to passengers.
