Our Offer

We evaluate the security of components and systems that are to be used in electronic payment systems. For examples:

  • Hard- and software for terminals and security modules,
  • System concepts, cryptographic procedures and protocols,
  • Operating systems and chip card applications,
  • Security of the integrated semi-conductors (amongst others verification of resistance against Side Channel Attacks, e.g.  Simple Power Analysis (SPA), Differential Power Analysis (DPA), Electromagnetic Emanation (EMA) or Fault Injection Attacks e.g. by laser beams),
  • Organisational measures during development. Production and operation of security-relevant components.
