This year’s ECCA Conference Best Presentation Award, sponsored by Santander Universities was given to Haiko te Neues, responsible for software development and it-security at the department for information services at Ruhr-University Bochum (Germany), for the presentation entitled “Introducing NFC technology for Strong Authentication”.


Discarding the traditional PKI approach due to its complex and costly management, the presentation depicts the solution deployed at Ruhr-University Bochum for remote strong authentication based on NFC technologies combined with the smart card issued to the students and staff. The complete presentation is available at ECCA 2014 website.
