Really smart card project scoops EUREKA 2010 Innovation Award
Date:6/25/2010

defined all the background specifications for a new standard for European electronic identity documents using a smartcard system, called IAS-ECC -Identification Authentication Signature -European Citizen Card.

On the mobile telecommunications side, the project found innovative solutions using the increasingly popular Near Field Technology, allowing the wireless exchange of data between two electronic devices. This technology breakthrough enabled the partners to make successful proposals to the international standardisation bodies.

Technically, the project was extremely ambitious and led to complex software developments. On the hardware side, special microchips for smart-cards were developed- very secure microprocessors incorporating advanced cryptographic material on which an individual's data could be stored, such as name, a photo and even other biometric data like fingerprints. The proper handling of security issues was a major point, because for governments or other bodies like operators to be convinced enough to adopt the technologies from the project, they would have to be sure they would protect the e-id cards or SIM devices from being forged.

Smartcard and chip makers, mobile operators, handset manufacturers, software editors, electronics designers and biometric specialists were just some of the experts on board. The team divided into groups working on transversal domains such as security or contact-less and also into two vertical groups to tackle governmental requirements and commercial needs.

Over the three years of the project, which started in 2005, the partners held sub-project meetings monthly and the whole consortium met every three months to closely monitor progress. Special care was also taken to test all new concepts introduced: 'The testing was very complicated,' recalled Tual. All components of the new technology had to be tested separately in all types of situations and the complete impossibility to clo
