Infineon Technologies joins the Java Card Forum

The Java Card Forum (JCF) is delighted to announce Infineon Technologies AG as its latest member.

With more than six billion high security controllers sold since 2010, Infineon is a major player in today’s global security industry. Infineon has a long history working with Java Card technology supporting specification enhancements throughout the various releases, right up to the 3.0 version.

“Infineon can bring a wealth of experience to the Java Card Forum particularly in the area of security and a network of partners who are interested in the further development of the platform,” explains Ioannis Kabitoglou, Vice President & General Manager at Infineon. “There is clear trend towards the use of Java Card technology in Smart Card and Security applications in the area of payment and government. Especially multi-application is driving this development: Java Card gives a maximum of flexibility for combining and upgrading various features on a single card,” concludes Kabitoglou.

“We are delighted that Infineon will be a valued member of the JCF,” declares Volker Gerstenberger, President of the JCF. “They have long been champions of the Java Card platform and we welcome their contributions to the continued specification development. It is especially significant that they are joining in 2017, as we celebrate our 20 year anniversary – a real statement that the technology is very much alive and kicking, with new business opportunities and challenges.”
