Munich, Germany – July 2, 2015 – Contactless, multifunctional, fast and secure features are important requirements for the new generation of travel documents.

IFSEC 2015: Giesecke & Devrient and baimos technologies to jointly demonstrate the secure personalization of contactless smart cards via smartphone

London / Munich, June 16, 2015. Digital access control typically relies on smart card technology to securely store digital keys. A complex and hardware- heavy infrastructure is required to write onto such cards securely and – particularly in a decentralized environment – to personalize their individual access permissions. The higher the security requirements are, the greater the need to employ an expensive end-to-end solution from one single provider usually becomes. The two security experts G&D and baimos are now showcasing an integrated solution that can remove this complexity by turning any NFC smartphone into a secure smart card reader for contactless key cards. The cost for dedicated reader hardware and maintenance is reduced to virtually zero, while the number of readers can expand with existing smartphones at no incremental cost.
