    Trusted Logic releases NFC Protocol Stack for Android


    Trusted Logic, a provider of Trusted Execution Environments for embedded systems, today announced the launch of its TRUSTED NFC software platform for the Google Android operating system.

    Trusted NFC is said to be a complete software platform enabling mobile applications to use handset NFC connectivity. It is also said to provide simple interfaces for developing applications, either in native or using Java. Trusted Logic has already developed the JSR257 interface for J2ME/MIDP applications, and is now providing a similar interface for Android applications.

    Trusted NFC can be ported on any mobile operating system, and Trusted Logic is said to facilitate and speed up the integration process by offering reference implementations on the main operating systems, such as the one on Android that is now available. Reference implementations are available on PC simulation environments like the Android emulator and as well as on various mobile platforms, using the NXP PN544 NFC controller as the reference for validation. Trusted Logic also tests the reference implementations' interoperability with smart cards and smart labels from different suppliers.

    NFC technology enables use cases such as mobile payment, and can therefore benefit from Trusted Logic's Trusted Foundations software to secure NFC applications.

    Dominique Bolignano, President of Trusted Logic, comments: "Trusted NFC is a key element of Trusted Logic's vision in the deployment of value-added services on mobile handsets. By using reference implementations such as Trusted NFC on Android, our customers can launch products earlier and more efficiently. They also benefit from our deep understanding of how their customers use the technology."
