Secure Electronic Transactions: R & D

  Ajouter au panier

The TES Competitiveness Cluster positions our region as a national centre of excellence
Years of experience
1981-82: the very first smart card transaction in Caen
1983: creation of a telecommunications Study Department in Caen
2007, R&D centres are designing the future

A twenty year history of Secure Electronic Transactions in Normandy, marked by experimentation and world firsts:
Years of experience
- 1981-82: the very first smart card transaction in Caen
- 1983 : creation of a telecommunications Study Department in Caen
- 1985: Launch of the "smart card" department at Radiotechnique (today NXP) in Caen
- 1990: Creation of a "cryptography" credit unit towards a DEA (post-graduate study) in computer science
- 1994: ENSICAEN (National Superior School of Engineering) specialised engineering diploma in monetics
- 2008: the TES Cluster moves to the EffiScience science park
Several successful projects have been made possible thanks to cross collaboration between France Telecom R&D, ENSICAEN, NXP (formerly Philips) and Caen University.
Normandy, and in particular the Caen conurbation, is home to a number of research centres in the field of secure electronic transactions:
- Orange Labs, (270 employees): international experimentation and expertise centre in monetics and cryptology
- NXP (formerly Philips): world centre for « Radio Frequency chips »
- CNRT (National Technological Research Centre) in Materials The centre has become a CNRS (National Centre for Scientific Research) Joint Service Unit (UMS 3318). Its mission is to reinforce top level collaborative technological research in the specific fields of energy-saving thermoelectric materials and composite materials and, occasionally, in the larger field of materials.
- LaMIPS (60 people): the Semiconductor Physics and Micro-electronics laboratory is the result of a partnership concluded between NXP Semiconductors, the CNRS, the University of Caen and ENSICAEN, joint guardians of the CRISMAT (Crystallography and Material Science Laboratory), in an aim to extending research work to cover default analysis technologies.
- LATEMS (Ensicaen, Orange Labs - 20 employees): Secure electronic transactions, monetics and security laboratory
- CRISMAT (Ensicaen, Caen University, CNRS (National Centre for Scientific Research) – 72 employees): CRYStallography and MATerial Science Laboratory
- GREYC (Caen Research Group in Computer Science, Imaging, Control and Instrumentation). The GREYC has created a "Computer Security and Usage" research theme in order to encourage and develop its activities in these fields, focusing specifically on data protection, cryptography, monetics and biometrics, and to develop associated application platforms (permanent staff: 107) www.greyc.fr
- PrINT: Intellectual Properties and New Technologies, Caen University Private Law Research Centre research laboratory
With 88 projects reinforcing Normandy's position as an innovative region in the field of secure electronic transactions:
- Key projects enabling large scale product and usage experimentation for the development of international standards
- Industrial projects ensuring the development of innovative products and services
- Structural projects in support of these key industrial and experimentation projects and of the development and
implementation of associated businesses throughout the region
- Caen-based experimentation of a contactless technology enabling payment solutions via mobile phones. The technology's
code name: NFC (Near Field Communication).
