Scalability, integration & interoperability: why STMicroelectronics uses Java Card technology to deploy secure solutions

Many market segments are witnessing growing security concerns and challenges associated with the design of effective, application-specific security, while still ensuring fast time to market.

A flexible, efficient, and secure platform, Java Card is a pervasive technology that can address multiple use cases on a single device, help device makers reach the highest security levels, and simplify security certifications. It offers a framework that hosts and manages already-approved components and third-party applets at any time in the product lifecycle.

As it is instrumental to meet customer security needs, the majority of ST’s secure microcontrollers STSECURE are based on Java Card and cover a wide range of applications, from mobile, banking, identification and transport, to secure solutions for M2M, automotive applications and connected devices. ST’s Java Card-based solutions are highly appreciated and often preferred by customers, standardization bodies and de facto standard committees.

Java Card is at the heart of many embedded architectures, allowing ST customers to overcome the challenges of deploying secure applications and fostering the deployment of secure solutions around the world.
