(DE) VERFAHREN ZUR VERWALTUNG EINER BIOMETRISCHEN CHIPKARTE
(EN) METHOD FOR MANAGING A BIOMETRIC SMART CARD
(FR) PROCÉDÉ DE GESTION D'UNE CARTE INTELLIGENTE BIOMÉTRIQUE
Abstract
(EN) The invention is a method for managing a biometric smart card (10) associated to a user (50). The biometric smart card comprises a reference biometric data (21) previously enrolled by the user, a secure element (20), a biometric sensor (40) and a controller (30) coupled to the biometric sensor (40). The controller comprises a first firmware (31). The method comprises the following steps:- the secure element receives a second firmware (32) originated from a remote server (90),- establishing a secure channel between the secure element and the controller by using keys pre-stored in said secure element and controller,- the secure element sends the second firmware to the controller through the secure channel, and- the secure element applies a policy to deactivate the first firmware and activate the second firmware.
