Brazil adopts OSTP Alliance CIPURSE to protect personal data on new drivers’ license smartcards

 

Brazil has adopted CIPURSE, the OSPT Alliance’s non-proprietary, open standard for secure transaction solutions, to protect personal data including fingerprints and face photos on new drivers’ license cards.

Under the new scheme, the cards will be readable by law enforcement officers with an NFC smartphone app, and card-holders can access financial services with fingerprint authentication. The card also allows for public transportation implementations.

“CIPURSE was selected as it is a fast, easy to program, open and non-proprietary standard which is suitable for more than just transport,” explains Yannick Le Goff, president of the OSPT Alliance Board. “The advanced security mechanisms of the CIPURSE AES-128 based unique cryptographic protocol are ideal for ID functionality. Additionally, CIPURSE products can be read using standard NFC readers, meaning law enforcement officers can check documentation on the go wherever they are.”

Brazil is moving away from a paper-based license system for its 66 million drivers, and future developments for transport services and access control are planned for the card.

The OSTP Alliance’s CIPURSE open standard is built on ISO 7816, AES-128, ISO/IEC 14443-4 to provide highly secure, interoperable, and flexible transit fare collection solutions.
