Based on JCOP United Access has developed a multi purpose Security Access Module [SAM] for handling of symmetric keys. For administrative purposes a so called central security module [CSM] is the counterpart in the secure back end and functions as the central security component. That is the way a real end-to-end security scheme can be enforced.
As an alternative plattform we offer the Infineon SLE88CFX4000p high-end microcontroller for SAM applications based on PROTOS. Typically this platform is used for tailor made SAMs and dedicated applications. This platform offers all possibilities in terms of performance, security and flexibility. The final SAM application is defined together with the customer and implemented by us. United Access delivers the ready made, initialized SAM.
Additionally United Access offers key management systems [KMS] for generation, administration and secure backup of symmetric keys.
We also offer dedicated SAMs for certain applications like for Eurochip based telephony cards, my-d based RFID token, Mifare based applications and others like the Infineon SICRYPT easySAM.
