UL is pleased to announce that GlobalPlatform has qualified the new Collis Compliance Test Suite for GlobalPlatform Mapping Guidelines and the Collis Compliance Test Suite for GlobalPlatform SWP and HCI, after successful completion of the GlobalPlatform TestFest process.
The qualifications of these test suites result in UL offering a full portfolio of GlobalPlatform qualified test suites that completely ensure the interoperability of smart-cards or secure elements within the GlobalPlatform ecosystem.
The Collis Compliance Test Suite for GlobalPlatform Mapping Guidelines ensures the compliance of a card that implements the GlobalPlatform Mapping Guidelines specification and has also been designed to be compatible with other cards that implement a core set of GlobalPlatform Card 2.2.1 functionality. This new test tool is backed by a high expertise in mobile and compliance test tools and will ensure high level of compliance and interoperability.
The Collis Compliance Test Suite for GlobalPlatform SWP and HCI ensures the compliance of an SWP-enabled card according to the industry standard ETSI test specifications (ETSI TS 102 694-2 and ETSI TS 102 695-2). With NFC technology gaining momentum on a daily basis, we are confident that the Collis Compliance Test Suite for GlobalPlatform SWP and HCI provides the ideal testing solution.
Maxim Dyachenko, Manger Development & Delivery at UL Transaction Security, said: "Over the last few years, smart card technology has changed considerably. More powerful microprocessors along with secure multi-application smart card operating systems provide the necessary functionality required by a large number of smart card applications. Many smart card applications in various industries rely on GlobalPlatform technology for personalization, key management and security. We are excited that through the qualification of two test suites, we can now offer our customers a full portfolio of certified GlobalPlatform test suites. This strengthens our position as the number one competence center in transaction security technology."
Kevin Gillick, Executive Director at GlobalPlatform, added: "We are delighted that UL's Transaction Security service line has shared its expertise and participated in the compliance program certification process. On behalf of GlobalPlatform, I would like to congratulate UL on achieving GlobalPlatform qualified status for its Collis Compliance Test Suite for GlobalPlatform Mapping Guidelines test suite and Collis Compliance Test Suite for GlobalPlatform SWP and HCI."
Additional test suites that complete the Collis GlobalPlatform test suite portfolio are the Collis Compliance Test Suite for GlobalPlatform UICC configuration, the Collis Compliance Test Suite for GlobalPlatform UICC Contactless Extension and the Collis Compliance Test Suite for GlobalPlatform Basic Financial Configuration.
