AUSTRIACARD’s products offer fast transaction times while ensuring the highest security levels.
The security of offline transactions – both contactless and contact-based – is enriched by Combined DDA and Generate Application Cryptogram (CDA) processing.
Moreover, AUSTRIACARD is using an inductive coupling technology which eliminates the physical connection of the microcontroller with the antenna increasing the robustness of the contactless interface and thus extends the life span of the card.
