Eurosmart welcomes the EC proposal to introduce a harmonized contactless electronic security feature on Member states ID cards
On the 17th of March, The European Commission tabled a proposal for a regulation to improve the security features of EU citizens identity cards and residence cards with the aim at curbing document fraud.
Eurosmart and its members are fully committed in achieving the highest level of trust and security in particular in the fields of physical and digital ID documents. The Digital Security Industry welcomes the European Commission’s proposal to set common security standards across the EU in the line with the ICAO requirements, and stresses the fact that facial and fingerprints data stored on a certified secure element, remains the best option to prevent bad uses and falsifications.
exceet Card AG is further strengthening its portfolio with SECORA™ Pay security solutions from Infineon Technologies AG. Card manufacturers can easily integrate them thanks to the combination of dual interface chip technology with the award-winning Coil-on-Module (CoM) packages. These also make the card more robust and reliable.
In early April 2018, GlobalPlatform announced in a Security Informative Note that the latest version of the Card Specification (v2.3.1) will set SCP02 as a deprecated feature. Eurosmart is committed in developing, promoting and maintaining the appropriate security level for its products, solutions and protocols and welcomes Global Platform’s initiative. Eurosmart specifies that, for a long time, the digital security industry has been added additional security measures to SCO02. The Eurosmart members are used to systematically pre-encrypting sensitive data or restricting the usage only to trusted environments.
Stefane Mouille, President of Eurosmart explains: “Once again, the situation proves the good anticipation of our industry with regards to the security erosion of SCP02 and continues to favour a smooth transition to SCP03”.
The Smart Payment Association (SPA) announced at 4th April that they have signed a Memorandum of Understanding for cooperation with NXP® Semiconductors. NXP Semiconductors becomes a Market Monitoring Advisory Council Member of SPA, the trade body of the smart payment technology providers.

Gemalto has joined forces with Entrust Datacard to provide a unique, SaaS-based instant issuance solution for U.S. financial institutions. In 2006, instant issuance began to penetrate the payment card industry, and banks were presented with the opportunity to set themselves ahead of their competition by providing consumers with a higher level of service and differentiated products. With additional benefits to the solution, it has now become critical for financial institutions to integrate instant issuance into their portfolio. Aite Group's Tiffani Montez agrees: "The ability to instantly issue a card in a branch was a luxury in the past, but as more and more issuers implement this capability, it is slowly moving from a nice-to-have to a must-have." Aite's research also shows that from 2017 to 2021, the number of North American financial institutions who have implemented instant issuance will jump from 3,312 to 5,483, representing 55% market adoption.
