GlobalPlatform updates compliance programme to certify UICC products

lifecycle management of contactless applications

GlobalPlatform, an organisation which standardises the management of applications on secure chip technology, has updated its compliance programme, designed to ensure consistency in the lifecycle management of contactless applications. The company claims that certification of compliant products to this specification will give service providers the confidence that applications will perform as intended, regardless of the mobile handset being used. 

Card Specification v2.2 Amendment C, also known as Contactless Services, defines the deployment and lifecycle management of contactless applications, where all necessary information about the contactless protocols is defined at the time of installation. A key feature of this specification is the consistent end user experience that is provided regardless of the user interface, which is generated by an OS application which can be tailored by the wallet issuer to meet their needs and those of the service provider.

Companies that have launched GlobalPlatform qualified test tools which verify that a UICC product meets the functional requirements outlined within the GlobalPlatform Card Specification v2.2 Amendment C include Barnes International, FIME, Galitt and Collis.
