Program: Technology Agency of the Czech Republic - Program which supports ALFA - application research and experimental development
This project focused on applying cutting edge cryptographic technologies based on research and transformed them into practical authentication systems to prevent the misuse of online personal data. As a part of this project, a new generation of authentication services were designed, namely, anonymous (attribute) authentication. This resulted in a set of software developed for smart cards and server infrastructure that can be used in commerce to securely verify authorized clients without disclosing their identities.
One of many practical examples of our achievements thanks to this project was the development of a building entry system using RFID chips. This system ensured proper entry of authorized people into the building, garage, or common areas, without disclosing their specific identity.
The BioP@ss international project (led by MEDEA+/CATRENE/EUREKA), was finished at the beginning of 2011. Based on the set specifications a BioP@ss smart card platform was designed and implemented. The aim was to demonstrate through example the usability of widespread authentication protocols for secure network communications with smart cards with contactless radio interfaces and a dividing layer of middleware between the web server and client station. The project’s overall capacity was more than 105 man-years. OKsystem participated in this international research project within the so called “Demonstrator”.
The Onom@Topic+ international research and development project, (led by MEDEA+/EUREKA), was completed at the end of 2007. The project resulted in a platform for using smart cards to identify documents within the EU. The project’s overall capacity was more than 300 man-years. OKsystem, representing the Czech Republic, developed and implemented “Smart card middleware and embedded interfaces”.
