OSPT Alliance Approves First CIPURSE-Certified Products

Stocks in this article: IFX INSD

The Open Standard for Public Transport (OSPT™) Alliance today announced it has certified the first two products to implement the CIPURSE™ open security standard: a contactless security controller from Infineon Technologies and a CIPURSE smart card applet for NFC smartphones from INSIDE Secure. System integrators, transit systems operators and other transit ecosystem members can use these and other certified products when creating next-generation public transport fare collection systems based on the CIPURSE open security standard to ensure that the contactless fare cards, NFC smartphone apps and other system components they choose will work with each other.

“We congratulate Infineon Technologies and INSIDE Secure on achieving these CIPURSE certification milestones for their hardware and software products, and look forward to the arrival of many more certified ecosystem products from numerous vendors in the coming months,” said Laurent Cremer, Executive Director for the OSPT Alliance. “Transit operators, system integrators and other members of the transit ecosystem will all benefit from having a wide diversity of interoperable CIPURSE certified products available to them.”

Members of the OSPT Alliance can seek certification for end-user contactless devices, packaged devices, embedded integrated circuits or applets. Compliance with the CIPURSE specification is evaluated according to the OSPT Alliance Test Plan, which is managed by KEOLABS, a global provider of test and development solutions for the microelectronics industry. Through the testing provided by the CIPURSE Certification Program, members of the public will be able to have the convenience of using a single device such as a transit card or smartphone to pay for transit across systems and locations. Certification program documentation is available for download from

“We are proud to be one of the first suppliers of a CIPURSE solution certified by the OSPT Alliance. We are now able to offer a solution based on a truly interoperable and open standard essential for the success of future-proof contactless ticketing systems. CIPURSE allows transit operators to lower the risk of their technology investment decisions when upgrading existing ticketing systems or installing new fare collection systems,” said Thomas Rosteck, Vice President & General Manager Secure Mobile & Transaction of the Chip Card & Security Division at Infineon Technologies AG. “It is also very exciting and encouraging to see that one of the next CIPURSE compliant products from Infineon to be certified by the Alliance is among the finalists for this year’s prestigious SESAMES Awards, the unrivalled seal for approval in innovation for card manufacturers and related industries.”
