GlobalPlatform, the smart card specification organization, has published a test plan which can be used by vendors and deployers of smart card devices and to self-test their product to ensure it complies with the latest release of GlobalPlatform device technology – GPD/STIP v2.3* – before development and implementation.
Vendors can use the new test plan to make sure products comply with the specification. This may result in quicker time to market.
The newly released GPD/STIP v2.3 Test Plan v1.0 is an upgraded version of the earlier GPD/STIP v2.2 test plan, and supports all new features specified in GPD/STIP v2.3, which was released in September 2007. The GPD/STIP Specification is GlobalPlatform’s core device specification which provides a secure environment for devices that run multiple, sensitive applications, such as mobile phone handsets and EFT/POS terminals.
The GPD/STIP v2.3 Test Plan is available at no cost for member organizations of GlobalPlatform, and may be purchased by non-members for $1,495.It is available for download from the GlobalPlatform website here.
