Sputnik Software, ATM S.A. subsidiary, successfully concludes another deal
23.07.2007

In June, Sputnik Software made the best proposal in a tender for the provision of smartcards and related software, and signed contracts with a number of major universities in Poland. This deal marks a step forward in the implementation of electronic student IDs.

Previously, the company provided cryptographic libraries used by educational institutions for personalization purposes, and the overall value of the recent contracts is approx. PLN 1 million.

Smartcards provided by Sputnik Software comply with the regulation of the Minister of Science and Higher Education dated November 2, 2006 with respect to university education records (Journal of Laws Issue 224, Item 1634), and have been used throughout the world as part of various identity solutions, including chip-based proof-of-identity implementations.

These are some of the most advanced smartcards on the market, compatible with the latest Java Card platform and featuring dual interfaces: contact-based in accordance with ISO 7816 and proximity-based in accordance with ISO 14443-4. With a broad range of applets installed, and the ability to add custom applications, the cards can be used for a variety of purposes, including electronic student IDs, loyalty systems, healthcare card systems, e-wallets and digital signature.

The organization covers various aspects of security, including cryptography, public key infrastructure, network access control and other smartcard-based solutions. Also, the department’s tasks include marketing technology components related to security, including smartcards and software.
