Cipurse Standard for Transport Fare Collection

CIPURSE™ Conformance Certification

Testing services to ensure reliability in fare collection cards and systems


The CIPURSE open standard provides an advanced foundation for developing highly secure, interoperable, and flexible transit fare collection solutions. It is built on proven standards, including ISO/IEC 7816, AES-128 and ISO/IEC 14443 for securing multiple payment types. The CIPURSE standard and derived testing solutions allow conformance assessment of:

  • End-user contactless devices (smart cards (PICC), tags, keyfobs, NFC handsets)
  • Packaged devices (inlays, modules, NFC SIM, MicroSD)
  • Embedded integrated circuits (hardware chips, secure elements)
  • Applets (JavaCard)
