Gemplus Delivers Indonesia's First Advanced Security EMV Credit Cards to Bank Buana

Luxemburg and Indonesia (ots/PRNewswire)

Gemplus International
S.A. (Euronext: LU0121706294 - GEM and NASDAQ: GEMP), a world leading
provider of secure card-based solutions, today announced it has
delivered Indonesia's first advanced security EMV Dynamic Data
Authentication (DDA) cards to Bank Buana, one of Indonesian leading
commercial banks. The implementation of the DDA EMV cards is in line
with Bank Indonesia's recommendation to banks to migrate to chip
based EMV cards in 2006. Bank Buana plans to migrate its entire
credit card base to the DDA EMV cards from this year.
"Gemplus' experience in EMV technology and deep understanding of
Bank Buana's unique needs were key considerations in our decision to
work with them," said Mr Aw Tee Woo, Managing Director, Bank Buana.
"The banking industry is highly competitive and we are always seeking
innovative and reliable partners who can provide us with the right
tools to help us stay ahead of the industry in a cost effective
manner. In addition to being a secure purchasing medium that supports
both on- and off-line transactions, the DDA cards from Gemplus will
also enable us to provide value-added services such as loyalty
programs to our customers in future."
Dynamic Data Authentication credit cards provide the most advanced
security available for securing payment transactions today. They
offer a sophisticated authentication scheme whereby unique
transaction signatures are generated by the cryptographic processor
on the card for each individual transaction. As each signature is
computed based on random data provided by the point-of-sale terminal,
this makes them difficult to duplicate, thus offering a significantly
higher level of security than the more commonly used Static Data
Authentication (SDA) cards which use a single static card signature
for every transaction made with the card. DDA cards also offer
off-line transaction processing capabilities, which will help Bank
Buana reduce its network communications costs.
"As the leading provider of secure platforms for banking
transaction in South East Asia, Gemplus is delighted to support Bank
Buana with our products and expertise. With both R & D and
manufacturing in the region, Gemplus is ideally placed to support EMV
migration in Indonesia," commented Dr. Martin McCourt, President for
Gemplus Asia Pacific.
