Boulogne (France), October 24th, 2016
Galitt KaNest®-ICC test tool has received GlobalPlatform qualification for its
Contactless Secure Element Test Suite. Thanks to a close collaboration with
GlobalPlatform, Galitt is recognized as an undisputable expert able to support all
stakeholders in the industry willing to implement GlobalPlatform specifications.
GlobalPlatform, an international industry standardization body, has qualified the
implementation of the Secure Element Contactless Test Suite in Galitt KaNest®-ICC. In a
mobile transaction model, the Secure Element, embedded in a handset enables
performing all security functions including tokenization, ciphering, signature etc. required
to accomplish mobile payment transactions. Typically, a Contactless Secure Element is
built using the same type of chip as a SIM or payment smart card.
Galitt has implemented in its KaNest®-ICC simulator different methods to test
contactless Secure Elements:
- The tool emulates a payment terminal and sends commands to the Secure Element
through the NFC contactless interfaces of the payment terminal and the handset,
- The tool addresses the Secure Element like a contact card, sending regular smart
card ISO 7816 commands,
- The tool addresses the Secure Element through the SWP (Single Wire Protocol), as an
equivalent to contactless commands.
As they implement all GlobalPlatform test specifications, Galitt testing software are
ideally positioned for handset developers, integrators and more globally all stakeholders
in the telecom and payment markets who want to propose handsets and other devices
including a Secure Element compliant with GlobalPlatform specifications.
François Inglebert, Marketing Director, Testing Solutions at Galitt declares: “This
qualification comes in continuity of a long-standing collaboration relationship between
GlobalPlatform and Galitt. We keep on supporting GlobalPlatform and all stakeholders
