NFC -  Near-field communication. A subset of RFID, where the operating distance is much shorter than the wavelength of the radio waves involved. This is the case for both ISO 14443 and ISO 15693: the carrier frequency is 13.56MHz, leading to a wavelength of 22m. The proximity and vicinity ranges are shorter than this wavelength.
- Synonyms: RFID reader, RFID basestation, basestation
NFC Forum -  An international association that aims to standardize the applications of NFC in the 13.56MHz range. Their main contribution is the NFC Tags specification.
- Synonyms: RFID reader, RFID basestation, basestation
NFC Tag -  Any PICC which contains data formatted according to the specification published by NFC Forum specifications. Doing so, the data are 'open' and therefore understandable by any compliant application.
- Synonyms: RFID reader, RFID basestation, basestation
Non-Repudiation -  Guarantee that a sender cannot falsely deny having sent a message. Non-repudiation is an essential role of cryptography systems.
