Secure Element and cloud-based SE compliance test tool

Reduce time to market

The Secure Element (SE) is a tamper-resistant chip embedded in a card, a phone or, using Host Card Emulation (HCE) technology, the cloud. The SE is key to the development of a strong ecosystem which offers end users secure contact, contactless and mobile transactions and services.

To bring their solutions to market quickly, smartcard and handset manufacturers, SE providers, mobile network operators, issuers, and integrators must ensure that they comply with the latest specifications.

Comprehensive testing across all markets

FIME contributes to the relevant standardisation bodies and has developed Global to ensure the complete validation of your solution. Global enables the validation of your SE, whether it is physical or cloud-based, to support payment, telecom and identity applications. By integrating qualifications from multiple authorities, industry players can analyse how an application behaves on a secure element:

  • American Express™
  • Discover™
  • EMVCo™
  • GlobalPlatform®
  • GSMA™
  • JCB™
  • UnionPay™
  • Components and test suites

    FIME offers a comprehensive testing plan for the payment, telecom and identity sectors, which will test any SE to any of the latest specifications.
