A Security Analysis of a Credit Card Payment System for Bitcoin Transactions

Abstract [en]

Cryptocurrencies has become a very hot topic recently, with Bitcoin being the most

popular. The increase in interest has led to an incentive to create payment systems for the

currency that makes it easier to use for day-to-day shopping. A lot of companies are inves-

tigating possible solutions for credit cards that are used for cryptocurrencies. This thesis

aims to present and perform a security analysis on an already created concept of a credit

card payment system for Bitcoin. The security analysis is done in a systematical approach

where the modules were analyzed with predetermined restrictions and assumptions. The

restricitons and assumptions are then removed one-by-one to find potential threats in the

system. The outcome of the analysis is then evaluated in an attempt to find possible im-

plementation methods that would mitigate or prevent the discovered threats. The possible

implementations are also evaluated in terms of how they would affect the system.
