February 2023 by Marc Jacob

In cooperation with Infineon Technologies AG, TrustSEChas launched its new advanced smart cards operating system (OS) BIO-SLCOS. The OS uses Infineon’s latest high-performance SLC38 Secure Element to provide a secured and open platform that combines the best in security, flexibility, and hardware independence to meet the comfort, performance and security requirements of the global smart card market. The solution is ideally suited for government identification, payment, ticketing and access applications, as well as for application providers looking to enhance their biometric solution in terms of security, performance and functionality.

While demand for organic smart cards in crypto wallets is currently high, a study by ABI Research 1 expects, in an optimistic scenario, that up to 140 million biometric payment sensor cards to be issued in 2025 fulfilling consumer demand for more convenient and secured biometric authentication in personal payment transactions. In daily life, biometric card holders verify their identity simply by placing a finger on the card’s sensor and tapping the card at the terminal. TrustSEC is prepared to meet the growing demand for biometric smart cards, especially in the payments sector.

BIO-SLCOS is a smart card operating system that represents the latest technology for smart cards. It combines security, flexibility, and hardware independence on one platform. The new BIO-SLCOS enables application providers to utilize the latest evolution of Infineon’s SLC family of secure elements by using BIO-SLCOS with the capability to add another security layer for fingerprint authentication. As a result, biometric authentication can be performed entirely within Infineon’s newly approved SLC38 Secure Element.

The OS solution is based on Infineon’s SLC38 hardware and provides data integrity which is built on sophisticated security features tested by independent labs. In addition to managing file systems and I/O, the operating system also interacts with various applications. All products in the SLC family are rated with the highest security certification CC EAL 6+.

In addition to supporting contact, contactless, dual and USB interfaces, BIO-SLCOS can be preloaded or programmed with fixed applications or enable application uploading after using the card manager module. Smart cards with BIO-SLCOS can also be used to run multiple applications simultaneously. Furthermore, the solution can activate the card based on the bio information provided or occasionally authenticate transactions while the card is active.
