12 December 2017 – OSPT Alliance’s non-proprietary, open standard for secure transaction solutions, CIPURSE, has been specified for a new card based driving licence scheme in Brazil.
The project uses CIPURSE to protect a driver’s personal data, including a photograph and finger prints, for ID verification. The technology on the new card has many benefits including allowing law enforcement officers to read the data on the card via an NFC smartphone app, in any location, and quickly coordinate with other agencies across related systems. Additionally, banks can use fingerprint authentication to grant access to services and credit, and local public transportation solutions can also be implemented on the card.
Yannick Le Goff, President of the OSPT Alliance Board, explains: “CIPURSE was selected as it is a fast, easy to program, open and non-proprietary standard which is suitable for more than just transport. The advanced security mechanisms of the CIPURSE AES-128 based unique cryptographic protocol are ideal for ID functionality. Additionally, CIPURSE products can be read using standard NFC readers, meaning law enforcement officers can check documentation on the go wherever they are.”
66 million drivers in Brazil will be transitioned onto the new card based driving licence which was launched in Brasilia through the publication of a National Resolution (Specification) on 8 December as the country moves away from the traditional paper based model for the first time.
The future development plans for the card include facilitating transport and access control applications.
Laurent Cremer, Executive Director, OSPT Alliance, commented: “We are delighted that Brazil has specified the CIPURSE standard into an ID based product. We are starting to see CIPURSE used in a range of projects beyond transport ticketing from ID to access control. We look forward to seeing how the project develops and encourage other members to consider CIPURSE for ID platforms.”
