Experimenting with electronic commerce on the PalmPilot

Authors: D. Boneh and N. Daswani

The paper describes our experience with implementing an electronic payment system for the PalmPilot. Although Palm OS lacks support for many desired security features, we are able to build a system suitable for micro-payments. We discuss the advantages and disadvantages of using a PDA to make secure payments as opposed to using a smartcard or a desktop PC.
