Companies join forces to ensure security in NFC applications

[SanDisk and Philips partner to embed secure NFC implementation in SanDisk TestedFlash Memory Cards for maximum security in mobile applications.]

Sunnyvale -- SanDisk(R) Corporation announced it is working with Philips to embed its SmartMX chip into SanDisk TrustedFlash(TM) cards for secure Near Field Communication-enabled (NFC) mobile phone applications. NFC is an easy-to-use, short-range wireless technology that will allow consumers to use their phones as bus or train tickets and perform secure "contactless" payments and other contactless transactions by simply waving their phones near a contactless reader in a mass transit turnstile, checkout counters or drive-thru windows.

To help lower the cost of handsets and minimize the impact of security certification for handset manufacturers, consumers can purchase TrustedFlash cards in the retail aftermarket and use them to store their valuable personal content such as photos, music and data. The TrustedFlash platform ensures that service providers have a proven level of security for applications tied to the flash card rather than the phone or network service.

For greater flexibility, SanDisk TrustedFlash cards with SmartMX support pre-loaded and post-issuance models. This permits flexible application deployment policies and business models allowing mobile carriers to retain full control over application provisioning or share it with service providers or trusted third parties.

For the millions of existing handsets in the market that are not NFC-enabled, SanDisk and Wireless Dynamics are partnering to offer NFC SDiD(TM) Adapters, plug-and-play SD(TM) and miniSD(TM) NFC adapters integrating SanDisk TrustedFlash cards with SmartMX. Once inserted into the mobile phone, the NFC SDiD Adapter allows users to interact with contactless devices and perform secure NFC transactions. They can also use the TrustedFlash card to provide storage for their personal content and applications.

TrustedFlash cards with SmartMX technology for NFC transactions are available to OEM customers in the microSD(TM) card format. SanDisk has started pilot programs and expects broader commercial rollout in 2007.
