Karl Eglof Hartel new Chair of Global Platform’s Card Committee

Karl Eglof joined G&D in 2000 after working in the field of military communication and information systems and is currently Project Manager for New Technologies in G&D’s Telecom Division, where he lead G&D’s first Near Field Communication (NFC) projects. He has been involved in standardization for several years, with one particular focus being the European Telecommunications Standardisation Institute (ETSI) which specifies the smart card platform for telecommunications. On the basis of this experience, Karl Eglof has contributed to GlobalPlatform’s Mobile Task Force and Card Specification Working Group. He leads the Card Committee as it enters a significant year of new initiatives to align with market developments in the smart card industry. Amongst the committee’s 2009 priorities is the release of a series of amendments to GlobalPlatform Card Specification v2.2 that will support new requirements related to contactless and NFC technology and incorporate new secure channel protocols. The committee also plans to release GlobalPlatform Card Specification v3.0, which will support a new web application model compatible with Java Card 3.0, before the end of the year. Karl Eglof comments: “Good standards are the key to the continued prosperity of the smart card market. GlobalPlatform has played, and will continue to play, a unique and successful role in the development of standards for the smart card infrastructure.” www.globalplatform.org
