Infineon’s Secora ID Accelerates eID Project Execution

November 14, 2019 Alix Paultre

Infineon Technologies developed the SECORA ID security solution for Electronic identification documents (eID). SECORA ID can run Java Card-based applications on smart cards and other small footprint devices, facilitating design, testing, and deployment of eID solutions. 

The plug-and-play SECORA ID solution combines Infineon’s security chip with software. It can be customized according to the specific requirements of national eID schemes as well as applications from electronic health cards and eDriver licenses, to multi-application solutions combining identification, payment, and public transport ticketing.

SECORA ID supports contact-based, contactless, and dual-interface solutions. It's based on standards such as Global Platform v2.3.1 and Java Card v3.0.5, and also supports encryption mechanisms. The security solution's nonvolatile memory space of up to 450 kByte allows consumers to store personal data as well as biometric and visa information.

The operating system is targeted to be certified according to Common Criteria (CC) EAL 6+ and EMVCo; the applets are targeted to be certified according to Common Criteria EAL5+. All SECORA ID solutions will be available in widely used smart card packages including innovative CoM (Coil-on-Module) packaging.
