Even in highly complex systems, SRC ensures that distributed information can be handled securely and trustworthily by a large number of users and a large number of different components worldwide. Typical areas of application are electronic payment transactions, e‑commerce, chip cards or the general implementation of secure networks for information transmission and processing. Similar requirements as in the banking industry or in the insurance sector are increasingly arising in other economic sectors, e.g. when it comes to securing paid content appropriately in the media sector or to transmitting and protecting vehicle information in a secure manner in the automotive industry.
Industry also has similar requirements when it comes to efficiently protecting highly sensitive information in the development area, for example. SRC’s state-of-the-art solutions often define industry standards for interoperability, access and information security. SRC not only accompanies the international standardisation in these areas, but is itself involved in many standardisation committees at national and international level. Especially when standards have not yet been set, SRC supports entire industries in developing common standards to reduce costs and ensure long-term investment security.
One of our thematic focuses is national and international electronic payment transactions. We advise the banking industry in the conception and specification of
the SECCOS security operating system for the DK chip card
of card-based payment systems
of applications for cashless payment transactions
additional applications such as electronic tickets and bonus systems
of authentication solutions
of e‑commerce and m‑commerce solutions
The specifications are constantly being further developed and adapted to the latest technical developments. Examples of our fields of activity are:
the girocard system of the German banking industry
the implementation of contactless applications of national and international payment systems in Germany
the implementation of mobile payments, P2P payments and Internet payments
Standardization of the PSD 2 interface for access to account information

We have extensive experience in the development and application of test systems for both smart cards and terminals, from the transmission protocols to the application. SRC consultants represent the banking industry in all important national and international standardisation bodies.
