We are now in an age where more people have phones than toilets, and there are more active cell phones than people on the planet. How do we protect all of these devices as they’re roaming around unsecured locations, especially when we want to pay for something.

In this talk we’re going to rip apart the illusion of mobile security and explore some of the most difficult to secure experiences: payments. We’ll cover the concepts of building a rich feature set to protect the user, how to encrypt all interactions, building scalable trust zones, and extending identification with wearables and biometrics.
