jNet Technology is a “technology enabler” company in the business of developing JavaCard & Global Platform Operating Systems under contract with silicon manufacturers and smartcard integrators for Government Departments/Agencies and Commercial Businesses, both foreign and domestic. Our licensees either obtain the necessary training and port jNet’s source code to their chosen smartcard chip or contract jNet’s team to complete the entire project for them from inception through security certification.
jNet’s unified code base has been under active “clean room” development for over eight years and has been ported to a variety of chips, from 8-bit to 32-bit. Over the years, this high-performance JavaCard Virtual Machine (VM) has evolved into a compact, modular, mature, portable, secure and flexible platform. It has undergone extensive testing and security validations and is FIPS 140-2 and Common Criteria (CC) certification-ready, out of the box.
Technology-wise, we offer JavaCard technology licensees two baselines:
- JavaCard v3.0.4 “Classic” + Global Platform v2.2.1 with most optional features implemented and easily configurable. This baseline is geared towards security evaluations like FIPS 140-2 and/or Common Criteria for Government ID, ePassport, multi-application banking cards and other high assurance deployments.
- JavaCard v2.2.2 + Visa GP2.1.1 is a small footprint, yet secure and fully a compliant implementation well suited for banking, transit, loyalty, ID or as a base JavaCard platform where many proprietary features are desired.
