IDCore 140 Java-based Smart Card

IDCore 140 Java Card

IDCore 140 is a contact open smart card, compliant with Java Card 3.0.4 and Global Platform 2.2.1 standards. Offering enhanced cryptographic support, this smart card is CC EAL6+/PP Javacard certified for the Java platform and CC EAL6+ certified for the chip.


SafeNet IDCore 140 is the newest release in the SafeNet IDCore portfolio and benefits from the latest release of
Java Card technology standards. This Java Card platform is available as an open, multi-applicationcard and is
ideally suited for markets such as Identity or Security/Access. It is a Public Key Java Card (supporting both RSA and elliptic curves) that meets the most advanced security requirements of long-term, multi-application programs, including those being deployed by large global organizations. The SafeNet IDCore 140 is  CC EAL5+ / PP Java Card certified and complies with the latest international standards including:

  • Java Card 3.0.4
  • Global Platform 2.2.1
  • ISO 7816

The SafeNet IDCore 140 is part of a portfolio of flexible open platform security solutions that can be easily customized to fit into any corporate or public sector environment. With a full range of multi-purpose smart cards, SafeNet IDCore solutions support applications such as logical and physical access, PKI services and digital transactions. Additional benefits from Smartjac’s proven Java Card experience and product offer include support, personalization services and integration to Card Management systems.

The SafeNet IDCore 140 has 160 KB flash memory available for applications and data, and ensures optimization of the memory allocation, extended multi-application capability, large data capacity and lifetime. Memory can be released to the platform in real-time upon object deletion and made available to the applets. In addition, an MPCOS applet can optionally be loaded into the flash memory, making application development easier. The MPCOS applet is fully compatible with the high performance native MPCOS Operating System and can be used for secure data management and e-purse applications.

Flash memory—Flash memory ensures optimization of the memory allocation, extended multi-application
capability, large data capacity and lifetime. Easy application deployment thanks to the MPCOS Gemalto
applet that can optionally be loaded in the flash memory.

Flexibility and modularity—The open platform principle and interoperability enable the separation of application
development (Applet) from the platform. This also supports aggressive time-to-market for introduction of
new applications. Existing third-party applets from most vendors can be loaded and cards that are compatible with
existing ones can be generated quickly.

High performance—The SafeNet IDCore 140 Virtual machine has been highly optimized to offer maximum
software performance, making it one of the fastest Java Open Platforms available.

The SafeNet IDCore 140 virtual machine has been highlyoptimized to offer maximum software performance without compromising security. Combined with the latest generation of high performance silicon, this provides one of the fastest Java Open Platforms available. The open platform principle and interoperability enable the separation of application development (Applet) from the platform. This also supports aggressive time-to-market for introduction of new applications. Existing third-party applets from most vendors can be loaded and cards that are compatible with existing ones can be generated quickly. No Compromise on Security As reflected by the CC EAL5+ / PP Java Card certificationof its Java Card Operating System, the SafeNet IDCore 140 platform implements the most advanced security counter measures for enforcing protection of all sensitive data and functions in the card. The SafeNet IDCore Java Card OS was developed by an industry-leading security team
that designed it to implement counter measures against various threats, including side channel, invasive, advanced fault, and other types of attacks.
