With the enormous development in the field of NFC (Near Field Communication) technology and the wide use of Android phones, people nowadays are able to accessible to NFC equipped phone. Users are able to handle varied comprehensive tasks in daily life. For example, the images, electronic business cards or other files on one phone can be exchanged to another phone quite easily and fleetly via the NFC communication. Meanwhile, unlike other wireless technologies, NFC focuses on the security control issue, the owners can use NFC-enabled phone to pay wirelessly or transfer encrypted files. My objective in this thesis project was to explore the possibility of NFC technology in product authentication. I did this by developing two NFC applications on the Android system and process specific information through a NFC tag. A Professional Hypertext Preprocessor program will be running on the server to verify the data on the tag. For the sake of implementing this application, we needed to design an authentication algorithm and test the program within WIFI environment. The project result indicates that NFC-enabled phone is easy to use and the process of communication through the NFC technology is secure and reliable. There is still space for development and broad potential market for the NFC-enabled phone and NFC technology.
