Intelling is publishing a new Smart Insights Report “Smart ticketing on the path to dematerialization” that explores in detail the dynamics and the specificities of the always-innovative smart ticketing business for public transportation systems. Smart Insights analyzes the evolution of Automated Fare Collection (AFC) systems since their early roots with paper tickets and tokens to the most future-proof solutions such as mobile ticketing and open loop systems. A global vision through the value chain is also offered, evaluating the business models and positioning of the multiple stakeholders in this market.
Industry body OSPT Alliance has released an update to its CIPURSE™ Mobile Guidelines. The document, which was initially released in 2013, offers a comprehensive set of requirements and use cases for developing and deploying CIPURSE™ secured ticketing mobile apps for NFC-enabled smart phones, tablets and other smart devices. It clearly lays out requirements for certification, provides implementation guidelines for embedded secure element (eSE), SIM-UICC and microSD and presents multiple use cases.
In modernen Städten ist der Intelligente Öffentliche Transport auf das Internet of Things und auf sichere elektronische Systeme angewiesen, um Daten abzurufen, zu verarbeiten und auszutauschen. Durch das Aufkommen dieser Technologien erhöhten sich die Cyber-Bedrohungen des Intelligenten Öffentlichen Transportes. Erst kürzlich wurde ein Transportsystem mehrere Tage lang durch Funkstörungen in Telekommunikationssystemen lahmgelegt. Ausfälle von Zentralservern der Informations- und Kommunikationstechnologie (IKT) verursachten globale Ausfälle eines U-Bahn-Systems und Smart Tickets wurden mit betrügerischer Absicht gehackt.
ENISA proposes guidance to secure critical assets and data exchange for Intelligent Public Transport in Smart Cities. In smart cities, Intelligent Public Transport (IPT) rely on IoT and cyber-physical systems to retrieve, process, and exchange data. These technologies bring improvements in the service and the quality of life of citizens. But, with these emerging technologies, cyber threats have raised on Intelligent Public Transport. Recently, a transport system was disrupted for several days due to radio interference with telecommunication systems; failures of ICT central servers has led to the global outages of a metro system; smart tickets have been hacked for fraud. These threats have an impact on the business and potential consequences on the health and safety of citizens.
