The steep market ramp-up of the Near Field Communication (NFC) technology in recent years necessitates increasing attention to interoperability issues. During the certification process for NFC-enabled devices, interoperability testing is not yet mandatory but highly recommended. Contrary to existing works, where interoperability test reports show only binary test results, our solution provides improved and detailed information about the faulty device. The framework presented in this article allows gathering additional information about the NFC communication, improves the test results, and decreases time-consuming manual debugging sessions in case of any error. Furthermore, this framework should encourage other researchers to investigate interoperability issues and develop analysis methods.
