Transport authorities the world over are keen to increase efficiency and performance.
Interoperability problems will become more pronounced and costly as demand for multi-application cards with contactless functionality rises.
Open, international standards such as CIPURSE™ are the best way to ensure interoperability across secured, cost-effective and flexible multi-applications schemes supporting fare collection.
Which is why our contactless security controllers support the CIPURSE™ standard.
Applications built on our CIPURSE™ family deliver best-in-class contactless performance and robustness
Infineon is the world’s first supplier of a complete CIPURSE™-certified product portfolio for secured, contactless cards supporting and combining public transport ticketing, micro-payments, authentication and access.
Our comprehensive CIPURSE™ family consists of:
- CIPURSE™ security controllers and CIPURSE™4move with Common Criteria EAL5+ high certification for secured multi-application smart cards
- CIPURSE™move for secured limited-use tickets
- CIPURSE™SAM (Secure Access Module) for ticket validators
All of our CIPURSE™-certified products offer secured, hardware-based storage of AES-128 keys enabling, 3-pass mutual authentication and secured communication. Commands and data can be secured using the CIPURSE™ cryptographic protocol, which provides inherent resistance to attacks like Differential Power Analyses (DPA). The effectiveness of this protocol was acknowledged in 2012 through the German IT Security Award. In addition, our CIPURSE™-certified products are ideal for NFC applications running on standard infrastructures compliant with the NFC Forum Type 4 Tag Technical Specification.
