Bell ID

With over 20 years of expertise, Bell ID develops chip lifecycle management software that enables banks, governments and enterprises worldwide to issue and manage credentials on mobile devices and smart cards. Bell ID’s primary strength lies in managing tokens within complex environments where multiple issuers, token types, applications, keys and certificates need to interact securely. Bell ID integrates with Thales Hardware Security Modules to perform card issuance and management functionalities.

Bell ID software solutions are used worldwide by governments, leading financial institutions and large corporations to manage their identity credentials, payment cards and secure applications. The company’s solutions meet the demanding requirements of international standardization bodies such as EMV (Europay, MasterCard, and Visa). When EMV chip cards are issued, a key management system manages cryptographic keys between authorized parties.

Cryptographic keys are an essential element on EMV tokens and are used for data encryption, decryption, verification, authentication and authorization. Thales ProtectServer and Luna SA integrate with Bell ID’s EMV key management, data preparation, and personalization software to increase the level of security protection.
