“Multi-entity-security using active Transmission Technology for improved Handling of Exportable security credentials Without privacy restrictions”
The objective of MATTHEW is to develop novel, privacy-preserving security applications with Anonymity and Attribute Based Credentials (ABC) being transferable over various mobile platforms like smart phones and tablets using Near Field Communication (NFC). Introducing active transmission technology for NFC, MATTHEW will overcome the most blocking obstacle in scalability of form factors for NFC antennas, thus facilitating integration of NFC-enabled security components in mobile devices. MATTHEW directly addresses Security and privacy in mobile systems of the objective ICT-2013.1.5 Trustworthy ICT and will, based on application requirements, specify an architecture with focus on multiple entity security with privacy preservation.
Component development will encompass secure elements with physically uncloneable functions (PUFs) and privacy algorithms support, active transmission technology and antenna designs as well as specialized packages for small form factor integration.
MATTHEW results will be demonstrated by a transferable payment application and a multi-key access control system. An ABC-based cryptographic API will provide pseudonyms for privacy. MATTHEW brings together eight highly qualified European partners, world market leading industries (IFAT, GTO, AMS, IFAG), research oriented SMEs (IMA, TEC, CRX) as well as a high esteemed university institute for ICT security (IAIK).
IMA has been working on development of an application in an NFC mobile phone equipped with a security module which interacts with a reader to achieve high level of physical access control security. To further demonstrate how the security module is used by the access control system (IDSIMA4), two ways of passive communication mode acc. ISO/IEC 18092 will be implemented.
