Near Field Communication (NFC) is one of the emerging and promising technological developments for mobile phones and other contactless devices. NFC technologies allow two active devices embedded with chip transmit small pieces of data between each other via short range wireless connection and at low speed depending on the configurations. It offers low friction process because of the close range that the two NFC enabled devices can setup a connection. The combination of NFC with smart devices has led to development and range of NFC that includes data exchange, service discovery, connection, e-payment, and ticketing. With the help of a NFC enabled phone and card reader device, contactless card transaction can be performed. Security problems related to relay attack were analyzed and identified a proper solution to prevent the attack. In the proposed system, a Frame wait integer is used to check and verify data manipulation, by attaching the transacted data with a signed integer.
