Arjo Systems and Rambus have been elected to join Giesecke&Devrient, Infineon and Oberthur Technologies to strategically drive the adoption and evolution of the CIPURSE standard for transport, ticketing, micro payments and access control 

OSPT Alliance, the technical industry body which develops the CIPURSE™ open security standard, today announces its Board for 2017. Founding members Giesecke&Devrient, Infineon and Oberthur Technologies, will be joined by Arjo Systems, a leading solutions provider for ticketing & transport, and government ID, and Rambus, a global leader that develops technologies and solutions from the data center to the mobile edge, including secure smart card & mobile-based ticketing solutions.

Yannick Le Goff, Head of Urban Transport at Oberthur Technologies, has been appointed as the new President of the Board for a one-year term. He comments: “Advances in the smart card ticketing infrastructure, combined with the introduction of new forms of ticketing technology, such as account-based, HCE and tokenization, is resulting in increasing demand for a standardized ticketing framework on which to build and adapt openly-sourced payment and access solutions. Consequently, the OSPT Alliance community continues to grow with new members from different industries; it is a real honor to be leading this technical body as our work matures and gains traction globally.”Yannick will be joined by:

  • Cesare Paciello – Vice President EMEA Sales and Ticketing & Transport at Arjo Systems
  • Werner Strobl – Head of Product Management at Giesecke&Devrient
  • KatjaKienzl – Head of Product Marketing at Infineon Technologies
  • Carsten Loschinsky – VP Chip Card and Security, Sales and Marketing at Infineon Technologies
  • Philippe Martineau – Ecosystem Business Development Executive at Rambus

“The commitment from these members is important as we begin to expand our scope beyond transport ticketing to incorporate other value added services such as access control, payment, loyalty and ID,” adds Yannick. “This has been driven by members who see the value of the CIPURSE standard in many different access control and payment scenarios. We are also witnessing new work items being brought to the alliance demonstrating the industry’s desire to collaborate and address market challenges that will assist in removing adoption barriers. We plan to announce these new areas of work shortly.”

OSPT Alliance works with its members to advance and evolve the CIPURSE Specification – an open standard based on ISO 7816 and ISO/IEC 14443-4 for fare collection systems and multi-application programs using contactless media.
