  • Future proven cost effective solution for security application
  • CIPURSE™ certified
  • CC EAL 6+ (high) for hardware


The CIPURSE™SAM is based on the high-performance 16-bit SLE 78 security controller with Integrity Guard digital hardware security which is used for e-ID documents of Governments and successfully achieved Common Criteria EAL 6+ security certification as an and CC EAL 6+ (High) certification according to Common Criteria 3.1 and protection profile PP0035. It incorporates the CIPURSE security architecture and is compliant to the CIPURSE Cryptographic Protocol using

The CIPURSE™SAM incorporates the CIPURSE security architecture and is compliant to the CIPURSE Cryptographic Protocol using AES-128, augmented by a combination of hardware and software security measures. Commands and transmitted data can be secured using the CIPURSE Cryptographic Protocol which is inherently resistant against physical attacks like DPA and DFA and was honored in 2012 with the German IT Security Award.

The CIPURSE™SAM is a ready-to-use Secure Access Module and offers secure storage of keys in hardware for 3-pass mutual authentication and communication. This Secure Access Module offers a dedicated key management system with flexible key diversification and secured key loading for user card authentication, personalization and SAM administration.

It is compliant to the CIPURSE™SAM Specification and to the CIPURSE Operation and Interface Specification. CIPURSE is an Open Standard of the OSPT™ Alliance and provides interoperability and easy integration of CIPURSE certified products.

The CIPURSE™SAM is the ideal product to support the upgrade from existing nonsecure or systems using MIFARE compatible technology towards a more advanced, state-of-theart and future proven security architecture such as the Open Standard CIPURSE. A typical CIPURSE secured transaction will take less than 100 ms. Further, the CIPURSE™SAM can be used to communicate with 1k and 4k cards using MIFARE compatible technology.

Following CIPURSE card variants are available:

Product Form Factor Profiles Memory
CIPURSE L CR80 or SIM card L 512 Bytes
CIPURSE S 2k CR80 or SIM card L, S 2 kByte
CIPURSE S 4k CR80 or SIM card L, S 4 kByte
