Collaboration extends NFC adoption opportunities

Virtual access, ID and other card system implementations have been simplified through a technology collaboration between NXP Semiconductors and MeaWallet
Collaboration extends NFC adoption opportunities

MeaWallet and NXP Semiconductors have announced a collaboration to simplify implementations of virtual card solutions for access, transit, tickets and IDs. Using NXP’s Secure Services Development Platforms (SSDP), MeaWallet will now be able to rapidly develop secure applications on NXP’s PN66T module. The PN66T is an NFC Controller combined with an embedded Secure Element which incorporates the new Loader Service and LTSM (Local TSM) features for easier provisioning of secure mobile applications.

The collaboration allows MeaWallet to develop and test their application for accessing NXP’s embedded Secure Element (eSE) on supported devices. This will enable solutions for virtual and digitized cards that emulate MIFARE based cards (MIFARE Classic, MIFARE Plus, MIFARE DESFire and more), fully supporting  the use of smartphones for proximity use cases like access, transit, ticketing and IDs. Access to the embedded SE can also increase security on storage and transaction execution in cloud based payments, eg the storing of single use keys or tokens in the embedded S, and, as such, MeaWallet’s customers will now be able to use the eSE to store secure authentication applications, such as government ID or passports.

“MeaWallet is truly creating the next-generation smart phone experience.  Being able to provide end-users with the possibility to use their smartphones for easy and secure access, transit ticketing and authentication will change user behaviour. Instead of having three items to carry we will have only one – our phones. We are very pleased to be working together with MeaWallet to enable these types of services and we look forward to being part of many MeaWallet initiated customer projects," said Jeff Fonseca, secure mobile transactions, NXP Semiconductors.   

“MeaWallet is a leader in cloud based mobile solutions and has quickly developed a deep competence and understanding of the Secure Element through our work with the SSDP. Being able to validate our solutions on the development platform means that we can support our customers and partners in the enabling of next generation solutions for access, transit and ticketing, further expanding the use of smartphones instead of plastic cards”, says Lars Sandtorv, CEO of MeaWallet.
