Just as frozen food requires an uninterrupted cold chain from the manufacturer to the end consumer, secure information technology requires seamless end-to-end security to ensure confidentiality and authenticity. This can only be achieved by reliable cryptographic functionalities based on high-quality keys that are securely stored.
The creation of high-quality cryptographic keys and their secure storage are technological and organizational challenges.
As proposed solution, Telekom Security has created a chipcard operating system (TeleSec Chipcard Operating System, TCOS), which is capable of keeping keys safe and executing the cryptographic algorithm within the chip. Once imported into the chipcard, no key ever leaves the secure memory of the chip and no copies of the keys are kept. This enables customers to create unique digital identities by assigning identifying characteristics to these cryptographic keys.
Based on TCOS, there are different standard products available, all of them providing preinstalled key material by the Telekom Security Trust Center.
TCOS Smartcards are ideally suited for integration into existing or developing smartcard-based customer systems. Our support with the integration of such hardware security elements ranges from the development of the first ideas to the analysis for the selection of the suitable TCOS product, the integration via the card interfaces as well as the roll-out of the chipcard.
Prevention of the pretence of a false identity that would allow fraudulent performance or malicious manipulation.
TCOS Smartcards for secure identification and authentication by proving possession and knowledge (password or PIN).
Smartcard based solutions to implement legal requirements such as EU specifications and technical guidelines of national or international authorities and institutions
Send us your request including your preferred TCOS Smartcard, order volume and your contact information. After checking your order we will get back to you as soon as possible.
The standard products use our chipcard operating system TCOS. In the following section you will find more information about the operating system itself, drivers and middleware as well as the various product variants to help you find a suitable TCOS product for your demand.
The operating systems TCOS (TeleSec Chipcard Operating System) is the basis for the chipcard portfolio described below.
Crypto token like our TCOS based chipcards provide secure key storage and cryptographic algorithms. Telekom Security offers drivers and middleware to enable their integration into software solutions.
