Title (EN) KEY TRANSFORMATION UNIT FOR AN IC CARD
(FR) UNITE DE TRANSFORMATION DE CLE DESTINEE A UNE CARTE A CIRCUIT INTEGRE
Abstract:
(EN) A multi-application IC card system is disclosed having selective application laoding and deleting capability. Prior to loading an application onto an IC card a test is conducted to determine if the card is qualified to receive the application using personalization data stored on the card and comparing it with permissions data associated with the application indicating one ore more sets of cards upon which the application may be loaded. If the personalization data of the card falls within the allowable set of permissions for that application then the card may be loaded with the application. Preferably, the personalization data includes data representative of the card number, issuer, a product class and the date on which the card is personalized.
(FR) L'invention se rapporte à un système de carte à circuit intégré à plusieurs applications et susceptible de charger et d'annuler de manière sélective des applications. Avant de charger une application sur une carte à circuit intégré, un test est réalisé en vue de déterminer si la carte peut recevoir l'application et ce, grâce à l'utilisation des données de personnalisation stockées sur la carte et à la comparaison de ces données avec les données d'autorisation associées à l'application et indiquant un ou plusieurs ensembles de cartes sur lesquelles l'application peut être chargée. Si les données de personnalisation de la carte rentrent dans le cadre de l'ensemble reconnu des autorisations correspondant à cette application, la carte peut alors être chargée avec l'application. De préférence, les données de personnalisation contiennent des données représentatives du nombre de la carte, de la personne qui l'a délivrée, d'une classe de produit et de la date à laquelle la carte est personnalisée.
