Oracle and Infineon Technologies have moved to combine technologies for developing applications in an effort to help service providers fulfill government requirements.
Infineon’s SLE 78 security controller has been integrated with Oracle’s Java Card implementation for manufacturers to build health care, identification and Social Security applications, Infineon said Tuesday.
Carsten Loschinsky, vice president and general manager for Government ID at Infineon, said the Java Card standard is intended to aid government clients in adapting ID technologies for specific needs.
The companies intend for the Java developer community to run transactions through high bitrate communications and various crypto accelerators, as well as to achieve ISO 14443 Type A and B communications and CIPURSE open standards.
The implementation features encrypted storage and data processing and a 16-bit architecture for end user transactions.
“We are very excited to cooperate with Infineon to provide the implementation of Java Card for their SLE78 product, and to have reached this milestone of Engineering Samples availability,” said Nandini Ramani, vice president of Java Platform development at Oracle.
