Comprion has developed a new testing API, a programming interface that allows developers to write their own test cases in the contactless environment (NFC Forum, EMVCo, ISO/IEC 18092, ISO/IEC 14443).
As the API offers the opportunity to implement user-defined scenarios in a lab environment, it is of high value for everyone involved in the development of contactless devices and applications. Product Manager Ralph Kamp explains, “Device and chipset manufacturers, for example, are interested in testing beyond what’s demanded by the different contactless standards. They want to test their devices at the limits and indicate and solve possible field problems before launch.” Furthermore, the Contactless Testing API is also a useful tool for manufacturers of contactless tags and readers, application developers, and test labs.
Colombia selects Gemalto strong authentication solution to secure citizens access to financial services
Gemalto announces that the Government of Colombia has deployed its SafeNet Authentication Service. The solution provides secure online access to financial services for millions of citizens provided through the Fondo Nacional del Ahorro (FNA) or National Savings Fund.
Gemalto's SafeNet Authentication Service provides secure, cloud-based multi-factor authentication when Colombian citizens log into their FNA accounts. The FNA provides a broad range of financial services, including retirement savings, loans, higher education financial support, and unemployment benefits. Colombian citizens benefit from simple, easy-to-use two-factor authentication provided by the solution. After entering their online user name and password, FNA account holders receive a one-time password (OTP) via SMS text or email that they then enter online as a second form of user authentication and additional security to protect their online accounts.
Gemalto is supplying Meetic Group, European leader of dating services, with its Netsize direct operator billing solution. The 20 million mobile subscribers of Numericable-SFR, France's leading cable and telecoms provider are now able to pay for subscriptions and services quickly and easily via their regular phone bill. This service can ultimately be extended to other mobile operators and European countries served by Meetic Group.
