“Since the beginning of a barter economy on our planet, personal Wallet seems to have remained stuck in the leather and bone ages, literally. I believe: Wallet is the next frontier for Enterprise and the next killer App for Mobile. Digitization of wallet is inevitable.
In 2012, Intel launched the latest release of Intel® Identity Protection Technology (Intel® IPT), a hardware-based security token for One-Time Password (OTP) usage for security authentication solutions.
White Paper: Deeper Levels of Security with Intel® Identity Protection Technology
With the latest release in 2012 of Intel® Identity Protection Technology (Intel® IPT) introduced additional capabilities beyond the initial one-time password (OTP) solutions embedded in silicon and provided an extension of secure computing to a broader range of consumer, enterprise and business applications.
The new Intel IPT capabilities included:

This week, Forrester Research, an independent technology and market research company, released an insightful report based on the results of an global survey that asked respondents what they thought were the most disruptive technologies that were currently emerging or about to emerge.
NFC – near field communication – was one of the most exciting developments to come out of IDF 2012 in San Francisco this year. This technology can be used between two devices so they can “talk” to each other with or without touching, usually at close range. There’s quite a few applications of this technology already out there, for example, zero-contact payment systems, e-ticket smartcards, mobile payments, virtual wallets, public transport, box offices, and more.
Along with other innovative Ultrabook technologies introduced at IDF 2012 in San Francisco, we heard about the implementation of NFC (Near Field Communication) as part of an upcoming Ultrabook release. Basically, what this means is that an Ultrabook can be used as a virtual cash register – no buttons, touching, or input required, safely and securely.
The samples can be downloaded from the links provided below. The full set of samples can also be found on the Intel Developer Zone. There will be updates as new samples become available.
Near Field Communication (NFC) is a set of communication standards which allow peer-to-peer data exchanges between two closely held end points. Normally the distance between the devices is required to be less than 4cm. NFC originated on RFID systems, and gradually developed into a standard communication protocol on smart phones and tablets. Intel® AtomTM based Android tablets and hand-held devices support NFC.
