Secure Element Management
Secure element management enables secure element (SE) owners to delegate ownership to service providers through security domains. Additionally, it manages cryptographic keys as well as the lifecycle of SEs and the creation, deletion and blocking of security domains.
Many near field communication (NFC) pilots have demonstrated customer enthusiasm for mobile contactless payments and have proven the capabilities of the technology. These pilots have generally involved a relatively small number of handsets, however, often with pre-loaded and pre-configured applications. Rolling out NFC applications to millions of users securely and remotely requires a robust and scalable solution, which offers all the necessary capabilities to manage the complex channels and combinations needed within the mobile ecosystem.
Secure element management can be performed by SE owners such as mobile network operators (MNO) and trusted service managers (TSM) wishing to become a Root TSM.
Bell ID® Trusted Service Manager offers advanced mobile NFC lifecycle management capabilities that assist organizations in executing TSM services or in provisioning their applications onto mobile handsets. The solution is based on a proven software platform already used by financial institutions worldwide to manage millions of contact / contactless EMV cards and payment applications.
