Abstract

Existing magnetic cards adopt plain text to store confidential information, thus being vulnerable to an untrusted credit card reader or a skimming device. To tackle the problem, researchers have proposed several new techniques such as integrated circuit card (IC card) and mobile wallet applications [1]; however, none of them can support existing magnetic card readers thereby facing backwards compatibility issue.
