JNet ThingX Corp joins the Java Card Forum

The Java Card Forum (JCF) is delighted to announce that jNet ThingX (“jNet”), a technology innovator specializing in the development of secure, embedded operating systems for secure microcontrollers (i.e. smartcards) and resource-constrained SoCs, is joining the Java Card Forum, demonstrating its commitment to contribute and drive forward the development of an IoT profile for the Java Card specification.

Over the past 3 years, jNet has been working with customers to evolve and adapt its Java Card solution to address the requirements of IoT edge devices. Building on Java Card’s strong security foundations, jNet added support for multiple communication protocols, sensors and actuators, including real-time processing of I/O and sensor fusion, secure remote updates, and more, to address the full set of requirements from the SoCs that go into IoT edge devices.

“Our mission at jNet has been to help our customers reduce development costs, accelerate time-to-market and enhance security for IoT edge devices by making them Java-programmable. We port a Java Virtual Machine on to the smallest, most resource-constrained SoCs, so developers can tap the powerful development ecosystem of Java to build things faster, more securely. We are confident that Java-programmable SoCs will become the norm for IoT edge devices,” said Mikhail Friedland, CEO at jNet ThingX. “Through our Java Card Forum membership and contributions to the Java Card IoT profile spec, we hope to accelerate the adoption of Java Card for IoT edge devices.”

“We are delighted that jNet will become a valued member of the JCF,” declares Volker Gerstenberger, President of the JCF. “With their solid background in the traditional sectors and their innovative work in the IoT area, they will add an additional expertise to the Forum, as we work on the future direction of the Java Card platform.”
