Intel’s 4th Generation Core platform with Intel Identity Protection Technology (Intel IPT) together with the embedded NXP NFC solution will provide a basis for secure internet payment and convenient e-commerce transactions.

This feature will let online shoppers using MasterPass, the new digital service from MasterCard, pay by simply tapping their MasterCard contactless card or NFC-enabled mobile phone against the built-in NFC reader and securely complete the transaction with positive identity authentication via Intel Identity Protection Technology.

Forecasts from eMarketer predict that online shoppers in the United States will spend a staggering $262 billion in 2013, which represents an impressive 16.4% year-on-year growth. Of the $262 billion over 16%, or $41.68 billion, will come from mobile commerce; purchases made on a smartphone or tablet.

“This is truly the next wave in NFC-enabled user experience. Combining our deep understanding of NFC with our global leadership in secure banking solutions helps deliver exactly what consumers are asking for – a secure and easy way to shop online,” said Rutger Vrijen, vice president and general manager, RFID tagging and infrastructure business, NXP Semiconductors.  “Continuous innovation, advanced technologies and ultra-secure transactions will transform how we shop online and, by working with industry leaders, such as Intel and MasterCard, NXP remains at the forefront of developments.”

NFC is a market-proven, standardized technology co-invented by NXP and Sony in 2002. NXP is at the center of this ecosystem, fuelling its development by partnering with major handset and equipment manufacturers, mobile OS providers and applications developers. NXP is the global leader in secure banking solutions, and leverages its leadership in contactless and security technologies to provide complete and trusted smart life solutions.
