Versailles, France – Trusted Logic, has just introduced its TRUSTED NFC software platform for Google Android operating system, designt to allow mobile applications to use handset NFC (near field communications) connectivity.
It provides simple interfaces for developing applications, either in native or using Java. Trusted Logic has already developed the JSR257 interface for J2ME/MIDP applications. Now Trusted NFC provides a similar interface for Android applications.
According to Dominique Bolignano, President of Trusted Logic, Trusted NFC can be ported on any mobile operating system and is designed 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.
He said NFC technology enables use cases such as mobile payment, and can therefore benefit from Trusted Logic's Trusted Foundations software to secure NFC applications.
