ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the Infrared Data Association's (IrDA) Infrared Financial Messaging (IrFM) Point and Pay Profile that enables consumers to beam credit-, debit-, or stored-value-card information from their mobile phone or PDA to any vending machine, toll booth, gas pump, or ATM equipped with an IR port. The information then flows through the transaction approval-request infrastructure much as if it were swiped in. Consumers receive a digital receipt from their mobile phone service provider. Currently available in Korea and Japan, IrFM Point and Pay simplifies wireless financial transactions for the consumer while providing security for credit/debit card transactions. Agilent Technologies Inc. of Palo Alto, California, has introduced new software compliant with IrFM Point and Pay version 1.0. The HSDL-S500 IrFM protocol stack provides API functions in ANSI C programming language source code for easy interfacing. The HSDL-S500 software interfaces with standard IrDA protocol stacks and IrOBEX software.
