Eurosmart welcomes GlobalPlatform’s decision to set SCPO2 as a deprecated feature

In early April 2018, GlobalPlatform announced in a Security Informative Note that the latest version of the Card Specification (v2.3.1) will set SCP02 as a deprecated feature.

Eurosmart is committed in developing, promoting and maintaining the appropriate security level for its products, solutions and protocols and welcomes Global Platform’s initiative. Eurosmart specifies that, for a long time, the digital security industry has been added additional security measures to SCO02. The Eurosmart members are used to systematically pre-encrypting sensitive data or restricting the usage only to trusted environments.

Stefane Mouille, President of Eurosmart explains: « Once again, the situation proves the good anticipation of our industry with regards to the security erosion of SCP02 and continues to favour a smooth transition to SCP03 ».
