  • Aivars Kalvāns from Tieto will give a talk “Host Card Emulation: How a 300€ mobile phone can do what a 0.3€ payment card does“.
    Host card emulation (HCE) allows the mobile application to communicate over Near Field Communication (NFC) protocol. Contactless payment cards use the same NFC protocol to perform payments. Can a mobile application perform card payment using HCE technology? Yes, but it’s not as easy and simple as you might think. I will share with you what it takes to emulate a card payment based on my experience of creating Tieto Cloud Based Payment solution and going through MasterCard approval process.
