Security Issues in the Context of Authentication Using Mobile Devices (Mobile eID)

Mobile devices, like smart phones and PDAs, will play an increasingly important role in the digital environment. However, the pervasive use of mobile devices also brings new security and privacy risks. Persons who make extensive use of mobile devices continuously leave traces of their identities and transactions, sometimes even by just carrying the devices around in their pockets. Throughout this paper we will look at different use-cases for electronic authentication using mobile devices. We will identify the security risks which need to be overcome, give an opinion about their relevance, and present mechanisms that help mitigate these risks.
