A Secure Electronic Payment Scheme for Charity Donations


Although many charities have a web presence, almost all of them have been designed to accept credit cards as the only means for making donations. The anonymity requirements of many donors, however, make the existing means of donation inappropriate for them. In this paper we investigate the business need for an internet charity donation scheme, identify the security requirements such a scheme should fulfill, and propose a scheme that uses an anonymous electronic cash technique to make donations, and that employs smart cards for donation distribution. Finally, we analyse how the proposed scheme matches the identified security requirements.
