Oberthur gets EAL4+ certification for FlyBuy NFC SIM

Oberthur Technologies

Oberthur Technologies has become the first supplier to gain Common Criteria EAL4+ certification for an NFC SIM. The certification means that the company’s NFC FlyBuy card, an open Java USIM, now comes with the same level of security certification that is provided with top level smart bank cards.

“The arrival of NFC represents a quantum leap in the development of our industry,” says Xavier Drilhon, managing director of Oberthur’s Card Systems division. “This requires the ability to download secure applications into the phone which is what we offer today by bringing the highest level of security into an open and interoperable SIM platform”.
