Integrated secure platform for interactive personal devices

Integrated secure platform for interactive personal devices

Objective

More than other IT domains, the smart card industry is facing the challenge to reinvent itself in the fast moving high-tech area where seamless connection, mobility and security are key aspects. This breakthrough is only possible by changing the fundamentals of the smart card and by creating a new and open technology platform. The smart card has been successful in providing a first generation of secure, personalized and portable device to millions of users principally in off-line applications such as bank and telecom. INSPIRED will develop the second generation called Trusted Personal Device (TPD) to provide Trust and Security to users and on-line services in the future ambient intelligence and ubiquitous computing environments.

The concept of an individual object representing the root of trust is the paradigm which definitely made the success of the smart card. INSPIRED intends to rely on it and to extend it to the next generation of secure communicating devices. These devices will have different form factors and features depending of the targeted applications. INSPIRED aims at defining the common technical foundations to allow cost-efficient product developments of devices with extended features and performances that can better be integrated in heterogeneous networks.

The INSPIRED consortium gathers the large majority of the stakeholders in the European smart card arena including the major smart card manufacturers, vendors of chips and sensors for smart cards and leading research institutes. The consortium also includes companies representing Users from dynamic market segments such as Telecom, electronic ID, on-line services and digital rights management for requirements, concept definition and validation of the project results. INSPIRED is in-line with the RTD requirements identified by the RESET roadmap and will deliver the industry standard architectures for next generation devices that will overcome current technology heterogeneity and limitations.
