Are Smart Cities The Future Of Humanity?

Digital technology has provided society with hundreds of advances that make life easier and better for everyone. From the personal computer to the internet to the smartphone to the Internet of Things, we are increasingly living in a technologically driven world. But what if those technologies were bound together and used to build a Smart City? What would it take to make such a complex network feasible? And what would it look like to live in a such a city? Are these just the fevered imaginings of science fiction writers or could it be a real possibility?

Let’s dig a little deeper.


“SECORA Pay provides us with certified EMV* solutions from a single source,” said Ulrich Reutner, CEO of exceet Card Group AG. “With Infineon’s support we were able to integrate the new technology very quickly into our product portfolio. We can thus meet rising demands concerning security and durability more easily, especially in the growing dual interface market.”

"Customers of Degussa Bank benefit from modern payment cards with dual interface technology," said Silke-Christina Kummer, Head of Card Business Advisory & Services at Degussa Bank AG. "We obtain Infineon SECORA Pay solutions from our card supplier exceet: Thanks to the coil-on-module packages, our customers not only receive a high-performance card, but also an extremely robust one.”

Under the new brand SECORA™ Pay, Infineon combines outstanding hardware and software security solutions with the latest EMV applets to flexibly address regional market requirements. SECORA Pay supports a wide range of products and will thus significantly speed up migration from magnetic stripe to EMV-compliant payment cards with the focus on dual interface.

“As the world’s leading provider of security controllers for payment cards, Infineon is teaming up with its partner to help the financial ecosystem taking advantage of state-of-the-art security solutions. Our flexible products offer outstanding performance independent from the used form factor,” said Bjoern Scharfen, Head of Payment & Wearables at Infineon.  “SECORA Pay allows secure and efficient migration to the EMV standard.”

SECORA Pay S is a solution for payment cards that is quick to implement in the EMVCo environment and fully compliant with global standards and specifications. SECORA Pay X additionally supports domestic payment schemes and multi-application. It is also compatible with the CIPURSE™ open standard, enabling interoperable applications such as transport ticketing, access or closed loop payment.
