OSPT Alliance announces new test plan

 ospt_membersOSPT Alliance, the international association that provides an open standard for secure transit fare collection solutions, today announced the release of newly updated CIPURSE™ Certification Test Plan V1.07.

This latest version of the test plan simplifies certification of secure elements since it can now be performed with a single wire protocol (SWP) reader. This means that secure element, or eSE, can be certified without using a mobile phone while ensuring conformance with any model supporting SWP. The test plan also conforms to the latest CIPURSE Operation and Interface Errata, further enhancing the interoperability of CIPURSE products.

OSPT Alliance’s Executive Director, Laurent Cremer, said, “Certification brings multiple benefits to products, including consistency and interoperability between different CIPURSE-certified products in the field. A product that is certified compliant will behave consistently through personalization and over its lifetime in use.”

“A company has to be a full member of the OSPT Alliance and commit to certify its CIPURSE products if it wishes to sell such products “,” added Cremer. “This also gives them access to the CIPURSE trademark and the opportunity to contribute further to development of the CIPURSE standard.”

Since the beginning of 2015, nine products have been certified through the CIPURSE certification program, bringing the total number of certified products available to 22. Further products are expected to be certified throughout 2016, maintaining a steady climb in the number of certified products.
