Winning project looked at protection for e-payment and e-identity data

Woburn, MA – July 1, 2013 - Kaspersky Lab today announced the winners of its global education project "CyberSecurity for the Next Generation 2013". Following the 2013 finals at Royal Holloway, University of London the prizes went to: Firman Azhari from the Bandung Institute of Technology, Indonesia (1st place); Dusan Repel from the University of Plymouth, UK (2nd place); and Iwan Gulenko from the Technical University of Munich, Germany (3rd place).

The three winners emerged from a pool of 14 which battled through regional heats in North America, South America, Asia, Europe, and Russia & the CIS to reach the final competition which was held from June 24-27. In all, 10 different countries were represented in the finals at Royal Holloway, where the students' papers were assessed by a program committee of Kaspersky Lab experts, IT security professors and decision-makers from the IT industry.

The winning project, "Detection of Security Vulnerability in Indonesian Near Field Communication (NFC) Applications," by Firman Azhari, looked at protection for e-payment and e-identity data. The project analyzed the security levels of NFC cards and proposed a solution to manage security problems – from detection to prevention – using a mobile application called "NFC Inspector" and a small portable device for analyzing NFC systems called "AZlyzer".
