Bell ID, worldwide market and technology leader in the field of card, application and key management systems, has launched ANDiS4Mobile, a pioneering new solution for complete end-to-end life-cycle management of SIM applications and cryptographic keys based on Global Platform specifications.
ANDiS4Mobile is a robust and scalable solution addressing management requirements for roll-outs with secure applications for large quantities of mobile subscribers. Based on the well-proven, flexible and scalable ANDiS platform, Bell ID has created a set of ANDiS components providing network operators, service providers and mobile hardware device manufacturers and/or trusted third parties the means to manage the life-cycles of SIM applications and associated cryptographic keys. ANDiS4Mobile loads applications and keys in the most secure manner over the air (OTA) directly onto the SIM of a mobile device. The solution supports delegated management of applications, provides automated mechanisms to exchange information between issuer and the application host systems and prepares all the required subscriber-specific data required to personalize a secure mobile application and load it onto a phone.
“ANDiS4Mobile doesn’t replace elements in an existing mobile infrastructure. It simply provides the right tool set required to issue secure applications for mobile devices. Secure applications, such as EMV payment applications, are bound to standards and subject to very high security regulations. There is a big difference between loading a ringtone or a contactless electronic purse to a mobile device. ANDiS4Mobile addresses these issues and helps overcome challenges with the technology and standards”, says Oliver Burke, General Manager Marketing and Partners at Bell ID.
