Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid & Easy To Read I thought this is a very typical academic text book with lots of complex and head-spinning algorithms pointing you to nowhere. And, I was wrong. Truly, I'm impressed. This book not only fills with rich contents on electronic payments and case studies, but also it's well written in a simple, easy-to-read style. For people like me who wants to know more about payment technologies in electronic commerce, you will find this book very helpful. In general, this book is divided into two parts. The first part covers the fundamental knowledge on security infrastructure, like basic security, cryptography, digital signatures, authentication, PKI, as well as smart cards, biometrics usage in electronic commerce. The second part gets you to the heart of various e-payment systems, like digital cash, digital checks, SET, credit card payment, and micropayments, etc. For each e-payment systems, the book depicts the protocols to help readers to understand the overall process. It addresses the pros and cons. It shows some case studies in real life application scenarios such as Octopus Card in Hong Kong, Visa Cash, and PayPal, etc. For advanced readers, lots of leads can also be found from the reference page for further readings. Overall, this is no doubt an excellent book on electronic payment technologies. Very solid!
