Trusted Logic Announces Trusted NFC Software Stack for Devices

Trusted Logic, a pioneer in security solutions for digital services, announces the launch of Trusted NFC – an end-to-end software solution to make devices NFC ready. Last year Trusted Logic released its NFC controller software stack, which has already been selected by leading market players. Trusted Logic’s jTOP® platform – the leading open and secure platform for USIM cards and other Secure Elements – supports the Single Wire Protocol (SWP) to interface an NFC controller. The device host software stack now forms part of Trusted NFC solution and ensures handset makers (OEMs) full protocol compatibility with the controller part.

The newly released NFC software stack for the device host reduces time-to-market by considerably simplifying the NFC validation burden and providing full independence between applications and the NFC controller. It will be offered in various packages, including versions already integrated with the main operating systems in the market.

In the mid-term, Trusted Logic will also integrate its NFC software stack for device host into its Trusted Foundations[tm] Software (a programmable Trusted Execution Environment for wireless devices), thus enabling a secure and controlled access to the NFC controller.

Trusted Logic’s Trusted NFC solution will be regularly updated to reflect the latest specifications as issued by the NFC Forum. Trusted Logic is committed to bringing its expertise to the standardization activities and providing the market with products that comply with standards. Trusted Logic is a member of the NFC Forum.

Dominique Bolignano, CEO of Trusted Logic, comments: “Trusted NFC is unique in that it is a complete end-to-end solution. Through it, Trusted Logic again demonstrates its good understanding of market requirements and its system knowledge. We therefore not only offer the solution, but also help device manufacturers and chip vendors deliver their NFC products more efficiently – to make new use cases such as mobile payment a reality.”
