Abstract

The world woke up to the existence of the Internet in the early 90’s and Internet usage has grown very rapidly since then. Payment over the Internet, especially for low cost products and services, is becoming popular. Although many secure payment standards, like SET, are available, they are either ineffective for large volume micro-payment or indifferent to the cardholders’ privacy. In this paper, we propose a solution based on the smart card technology such as the JavaTM CardTM on secure micro-payment over the Internet. One of the special properties of our solution is the identity of the purchaser can remain anonymous both to the merchant and the bank. The design and correctness of the proposed scheme are discussed here.
