The partnership enables the Seos digital keys applet to be embedded in Oberthur Technologies NFC SIM cards

Oberthur Technologies, one of the world’s largest providers of security and identification solutions and services based on smart card technologies, recently announced its partnership with HID Global that provides Oberthur Technologies the ability to support the use of Seos® digital keys on NFC-enabled smartphones. The partnership enables the Seos digital keys applet to be embedded in Oberthur Technologies NFC SIM cards, making it possible to use NFC smartphones for a wide range of applications that typically reside on smart cards.

Oberthur Technologies´ dragonFly product family is a new generation of NFC SIM cards that are faster than ever and include best-in-class certifications (Common Criteria EAL4+, MasterCard, Visa, MIFARE DESFire) and integrated anti-virus protection. The solution supports key applications driving NFC deployments such as transport, payment and access control.  It also supports applications that facilitate a more convenient user experience, such as the use of a mobile phone for hotel check-in and hotel room access.

The Seos applet is part of an ecosystem of interoperable products and services for issuing, delivering and revoking digital keys on NFC-enabled mobile devices that can be used to open doors to homes, hotels, offices, hospitals, universities and commercial buildings. Seos includes standards-based smart card technology with state-of-the-art cryptography for maximum interoperability and security, and the Seos Trusted Service Manager securely manages Seos digital keys on NFC mobile devices.

“Oberthur Technologies’ dragonFly NFC SIM cards and its secure elements in general are interoperable with Seos from HID Global and fully meet the expectation of our customers in term of access control for mobile,” said Jerome Ajdenbaum, Telecom Business Unit Marketing Director at Oberthur Technologies.

“Our partnership with Oberthur Technologies reflects HID Global’s dedication to continually expand our mobile access ecosystem in order to deliver the broadest range of secure, convenient and flexible solutions to customers,” said Debra Spitler, Vice President Mobile Access Solutions with HID Global.  “HID Global is looking forward to working with a best-in-class SIM provider such as Oberthur Technologies to uncover new and exciting opportunities in the mobile access space.”
