Oberthur developing anti-cloning tech for smart cards

04 November 2011  |  3409 views  |  0 Source: Oberthur

Oberthur Technologies, the world's second largest provider of security and identification solutions and services based on smart card technologies, is proud to announce the development of PUF technology in smart cards, in collaboration with Intrinsic-ID.

PUFs are widely recognised as an important new security primitive and provide embedded systems with silicon biometry. Using this insight, Oberthur Technologies and Intrinsic-ID joined forces to promote PUFs to propose solutions to new security needs.

Thanks to PUF technology, secret and personal data do no longer need to be stored in Non Volatile Memory but can be rebuilt, when needed, from an electronic unique property of the silicon. In such a way, PUF enforces the anticloning mechanisms of embedded systems and banking, identity or transport applications are natural targets for this technology.

Taking advantage of the secure element biometric, PUF can also create a strong link between an application and a device hosting it. In a world where more and more security services (e.g. banking applications, access control, and content protection) are executed in a mobile environment, there is a need for trusted and secure systems. When combined with the classical assets of secure elements, PUF answers this need and brings trust by pairing applications with secure elements.

"Once again, Oberthur Technologies is at the fore front of innovation and security research. Combining its R&D strength and efficiency with its long term pragmatic approach regarding new developments, the Group offers today its clients new security features to answer new security problems", said Marc Bertin, Technologies and Innovation Director at Oberthur Technologies.

"We are delighted that Oberthur Technologies has selected Intrinsic-ID's Quiddikey™ product to develop new security features ", said Pim Tuyls, CEO Intrinsic-ID. "The combination of the proven card technology of Oberthur Technologies and the Intrinsic-ID security IP enables an entirely new range of compelling applications on mobile phones and tablets."
