- Our MIFARE mobile solutions allow transit operators, mobile network operators, trusted service managers, and other service providers to securely manage MIFARE-based services in NFC mobile devices
- G+D's certifications guarantee the security and interoperability of its MIFARE mobile portfolio with other service providers
NFC-enabled smartphones are compatible with existing MIFARE infrastructure, the most extended and widespread in transit, and can be used as smartcard replacements. Passengers can simply tap the smartphone against a MIFARE reader, the same way they tap a MIFARE smartcard against a gate reader or payment terminal.
The entire MIFARE suite is certified
G+D was the first SIM card provider to receive both the product certification from NXP Semiconductors for MIFARE Classic and from the MIFARE4Mobile Industry Group for MIFARE4Mobile Version 2. With the certification for MIFARE DESFire EV1, G+D completes the entire MIFARE suite.
For various form factors and NFC-enabled devices
The MIFARE portfolio is available in both SIM and eSE form factors for NFC-enabled smartphones and other NFC-enabled devices like wearables or tablets. This opens up a whole new area for MIFARE applications from ticketing and access control to micropayment. As an active member of MIFARE4Mobile Industry Group, G+D is driving the evolution of MIFARE technology in mobile devices.
Calypso mobile solution
Calypso technology is a contactless international standard designed by major transport operators and has been in use for over 20 years around the world. It is a mandatory functionality for France, Belgium, Israel, Canada, Portugal, and Italy. Calypso technology guarantees that access to information is legitimate and secure.
G+D Mobile Security, a member of the Calypso Networks Association (CNA), offers Calypso products and mobile solutions for these markets.
FeliCa mobile technology
FeliCa is a technology widely deployed across Asia, particularly Hong Kong, Singapore, and especially Japan, where it is the de-facto standard. FeliCa has high-speed capability, which is crucial for transit networks where very high passenger throughput is required.
As well as transit, FeliCa is extensively used for e-money and mobile payment, access management, customer loyalty programs, and event ticketing.
CIPURSE mobile solution
To cater for passengers' mobile lifestyles, transit operators need to implement secure, open, and flexible solutions. The CIPURSE open standard provides an advanced foundation for developing highly secure, interoperable, and flexible transit fare collection solutions. CIPURSE also allows the flexible combination of identity and payment functions in mobile devices or multiple application cards.
G+D's CIPURSE Mobile solutions, based on Secure Elements, will help transit operators meet current and future challenges. G+D provided the world’s first contactless smart card compliant with the CIPURSE open security standard now being used in Brazil.
As a founding member of OSPT Alliance, G+D is leading the development of this new, open standard for contactless systems.
Mobile application security is not an option
Mobile app security is paramount today. With the growing number of transit, ticketing, and payment apps now storing valuable data, hackers have begun to aggressively attack mobile devices and the apps on those devices.
To meet the growing demand for higher security for mobile apps, G+D offers the Trusted Application Kit (TAK) for transit operators and other service providers. TAK is a software development kit (SDK) for app developers and an application security framework for mobile operating systems like Android or iOS.
The solution won a “Best in Show” award recently at the Payments Summit show in Orlando, Florida, hosted by the Secure Technology Alliance. TAK is gaining considerable traction in the areas of mobile transit and financial services.
