If you have a question about this talk, please contact Neil Johnson.

In the UK, Chip and PIN has been with us for over five years. Originally promoted as a highly secure system, it turned out to have many shortcomings—some by design, and others by bad design. The talk will introduce the EMV framework, describe known attacks— including the latest “no-PIN” attack—and discuss the contributing factors that made them possible (poor incentives, sloppy regulation, specification overload, design-by-committee, cross-border interoperability, and others).

The talk is based on work done in collaboration with Steven Murdoch, Ross Anderson and Mike Bond. More information and published papers can be found here:
