Our project was to implement a Secure End-to-End M-Commerce system. We have called it SeMCom. We have implemented a Client application, a transaction server, a virtual wallet on the transaction server for the client, and a bank server. Semcom conforms to all of the security requirements.
All of the links in our system have end-to-end security, and conform to the requirements for data integrity, Authentication, Non-Repudiation and data confidentiality.
SeMCom conforms to the Secure Electronic Transaction standard (SET), but is also a much simpler implementation than most of the existing implementations today.
