Morpho and CASSIS International team up to offer first comprehensive end-to-end NFC solution implementing EMVco Mobile Payment standard

First dynamic standard solution to securely manage multiple payment applications on one SIM card in an interoperable way

Barcelona, February 14, 2011
Morpho (Safran group), worldwide leader in identity and secure credentials, and CASSIS International, a pioneer and leader in trusted services for mobile payments and Near Field Communication (NFC), are partnering to provide advanced NFC solutions to European mobile operators and service providers. As part of those solutions, they are showing together – for the first time at the Mobile World Congress – a dynamic Proximity Payment System Environment (PPSE) mechanism and the associated Mobile Wallet and Payment Application set designed to manage multiple banking applications from different banks and payment schemes on one SIM card in an interoperable way. The PPSE and applications set, as well as the user experience of the solution, have been designed in line with the latest EMVco specifications and guidelines.

Thanks to the PPSE mechanism enabled by Morpho and CASSIS, users can define their default payment card and manage it through the Mobile Wallet application. This process, along with changing, installing or removing secure mobile applications, is being secured and updated by CASSIS' Trusted Service Management Solution, which is compliant with all of Morpho's NFC products.
