HONG KONG, 21 September, 2016 – Advanced Card Systems Ltd. (ACS, a wholly owned subsidiary of Advanced Card Systems Holdings Ltd., SEHK: 2086), Asia Pacific’s top supplier and one of the world’s top 3 suppliers of PC-linked smart card readers (Source: Frost & Sullivan), launched ACOSJ, a cryptographic smart card solution that is powered by Java and compliant with GlobalPlatform Card specifications.

ACOSJ provides a secure platform for rapid application development of many value-adding applets, including e-banking, e-payment, loyalty, e-government, and public key infrastructure (PKI). ACOSJ has a fast read/write speed, is highly durable, and can house multiple secure applications. It comes in contact, contactless, and dual interface options. It is listed on the GlobalPlatform website as one of the products to present a successful test report from a GlobalPlatform-qualified laboratory.

ACOSJ is equipped with powerful cryptographic capabilities. These functionalities enhance the security and performance of cryptographic operations and data management, both of which are essential to fulfilling the security requirements of smart card applications.

ACOSJ employs AES, DES/3DES, RSA, ECC, SM, SEED and SHA-1/2 support. ACOSJ is either certified or compliant with the following standards: Java Card 3.0.4 Classic, Global Platform 2.2.1, Mapping Guidelines v1.0.1, CC EAL5+ (chip level), and EMVCo (chip level).

ACOSJ card body can be customized upon request, such as modifications on full color artwork, text embossing and security printing, as well as addition of signature panels and magnetic strips.

“ACOSJ provides elevated security and flexibility,” says Gilbert Leung, Senior Vice President for Sales and Marketing. “Through a single card, developers get an interoperable execution platform that can store and update multiple applications. It is also compatible with existing standards. It does these while providing security to the developer’s solutions.”

For clients who are looking for a secure payment card product, ACS also developed the ACOSJ-P payment card solution, which is compliant with the UnionPay Card standard. The built-in PBOC 3.0 application works with the ACOSJ platform to enable payment functions (e.g. debit, credit and QuickPass).
