Dr Steven J. Murdoch, Security Group, Cambridge University Computer Laboratory

Chip & PIN has now been deployed in the UK for 5 years. This talk will describe the experiences learned. Vulnerabilities discovered in the system will be discussed including PED tampering, YES-cards, and the recently published no-PIN attack. An introduction to the Chip & PIN (EMV) protocol is given, and the talk concludes with a discussion of its affect on fraud and whether Chip & PIN was a worthwhile investment.

Dr Steven Murdoch’s research into payment card security has resulted in several high-profile discoveries of vulnerabilities in the Chip & PIN system. He has acted as an expert witness in card fraud cases, and also assists the victims of card fraud to recover their losses.
