UL achieves re-qualification for Collis Compliance Test Suites for GlobalPlatform

Leiden, The Netherlands; 21st May 2013–UL is pleased to announce that GlobalPlatform has re-qualified the Collis Compliance Test Suite for GlobalPlatform UICC Configuration and the Collis Compliance Test Suite for GlobalPlatform UICC Contactless Extension, after successful completion of the GlobalPlatform TestFest process.

The re-qualification of these test suites results in UL offering an increased coverage due to new test cases being added as well as excluded test cases being corrected. These test tools are backed by extensive expertise in mobile test tools and will ensure a high level of compliancy and interoperability.

The Collis Compliance Test Suite for GlobalPlatform UICC Configuration is a configuration of GlobalPlatform Card version v2.2.1 technology, standardizing the minimum interoperability for UICCs for supporting remote application management via over the air (OTA).

The Collis Compliance Test Suite for GlobalPlatform UICC Contactless Extension is an add-on to the UICC Configuration that brings GlobalPlatform Card Amendment C technology to UICCs. This test suite uses Micropross TC3 or MP65 hardware to provide dual interface (ISO 7816 and SWP) communication.

Maxim Dyachenko, Manager Service Line Test Tools of UL’s transaction security service line, added: “Over the last few years, smart card technology has changed considerably. Many smart card applications in various industries rely on GlobalPlatform technology for personalization, key management and security. We always keep our portfolio of certified GlobalPlatform test suites up to date with the GlobalPlatform Compliance Program so our customers can make use of the latest versions of these test suites.”

Additional test suites that complete the Collis GlobalPlatform test suite portfolio are the Collis Compliance Test Suite for GlobalPlatform Mapping Guidelines, the Collis Compliance Test Suite for GlobalPlatform SWP and HCI and the Collis Compliance Test Suite for GlobalPlatform Basic Financial Configuration.

UL’s transaction security services were formed after the acquisition of RFI Smart in 2010 and Collis and Witham Laboratories in 2012. On the 1st of November 2012, the three companies rebranded to UL and became one. Under the UL umbrella they offer extensive advisory services, training, test & certification services, security evaluation services and test tools to the payment, mobile, e-Ticketing and ID management domains worldwide. The Collis test tool portfolio will remain its strong brand and will continue to be further developed and expanded.
