The complete operational procedure to implement Hoplink in your system, the management of keys, the certification process are described in the Hoplink Best Practices document.


To ensure a better level of interoperability, CNA proposes a set of mandatory tests to be realized at the level of the implementation of Hoplink in a ticketing system, in order to ensure that the applicative software respects the rules fixed for a normal behavior of the sale terminal and a compliant management of the contract area within the card.
