Supplier News

Incard have introduced Touch&Sign high-security contact and contactless smart card and is available from ST Microelectronics . The Touch&Sign high-security contact and contactless smart card is designed for a range of applications in digital signature and identification markets for governmental and public key infrastructure projects, and other key markets with similar requirements.

Incard have obtained Common Criteria certification EAL level 4+ for Touch&Sign high-security contact and contactless smart card and have been certified for the BSI protection profile for secure signature-creation devices. The device also offers lifecycle management compliant to ISO7816-9.

Touch&Sign high-security contact and contactless smart card features contactless connectivity based on ISO14443 type B, an onboard 2048-bit RSA key generation cryptographic coprocessor and an EEPROM memory size of 64 Kbytes.

The new product can be configured to perform for:

  • digital signatures with RSA keys of up to 2048 bits
  • identity cards (CIE/CNS)
  • electronic purses
  • health cards, both health professional cards and patient data cards
  • secure tokens for physical access control
  • secure tokens for logical access control (enterprise access).

Touch&Sign high-security contact and contactless smart card complies with the digital signature requirements of governmental and administrative bodies, notably, the requirement that key-generation lengths are longer than 1024 bits, in addition to contactless connectivity.

According to Incard, Touch&Sign high-security contact and contactless smart card meets the security demands of governmental organisations. Contactless connectivity and RSA key generation longer than 1024 bits are essential requirements for digital signature applications.

Touch&Sign high-security contact and contactless smart card can be packaged in different formats depending on application requirements, including contact and dual-interface cards with optional high-security printing features.
