Multiple applications may include credit, debit among others as well as mass transit applications that are engineered for security and reliability. A system operator may include an application for recording user actions but this ,nay be classed as surveillance and may raise privacy concerns. A n1essaging application may be added .for various reasons including legiti1nate com1nerce. Illicit system access is technically feasible but may be difficult to sustain.
