Abstract

The transition from e-commerce to m-commerce will introduce additional security threats compared to the status quo; issues that have already been solved for e-commerce re-emerge as security is traded for performance on low-power mobile devices. Nonetheless, as business fundamentally relies on security ' the fairness that both parties receive what they were promised ' technology protecting intellectual property will most certainly become available. Despite hackers cracking almost every copy protection, online connections will allow implementing secure cryptographic envelopes to protect digital content.
