SCM Microsystems says its SPRx32 combined smart card reader and PIN pad has passed all EMV 2000 level one tests.

The smart card reader is also certified for Common Criteria Evaluation Assurance Level (EAL) 3+, which means the SPRx32 complies with the international requirements for smart card/PIN pad readers used with digital signatures.

Jason Schouw vice president, Americas, for SCM Microsystems, says:"Our idea to combine a smart card reader with a PIN pad gives EMV card issuers a way to bring the higher security of PIN protected smart card authentication to their high-risk Internet volume."

In addition to EMV level one, the SPRx32 is also PC/SC compliant as well as Microsoft Windows Hardware Quality Labs (WHQL) certified.

SCM also participates in the smart Visa Ready initiative and the MasterCard vendor programme.
