Identification cards -- Integrated circuit cards -- Part 15: Cryptographic information application

(Not available in French)

This standard has been revised by: ISO/IEC 7816-15:2016

Abstract

ISO/IEC 7816-15:2004 specifies a card application. This application contains information on cryptographic functionality. Further, ISO/IEC 7816-15:2004 defines a common syntax (in ASN.1) and format for the cryptographic information and mechanisms to share this information whenever appropriate.

ISO/IEC 7816-15:2004 supports the following capabilities:

  • storage of multiple instances of cryptographic information in a card;
  • use of the cryptographic information;
  • retrieval of the cryptographic information;
  • cross-referencing of the cryptographic information with DOs defined in ISO/IEC 7816 when appropriate;
  • different authentication mechanisms; and
  • multiple cryptographic algorithms.
