3.30. pm:  Technical Workshop - RESERVED TO CNA MEMBERS

Eclipse-Keyple, an open source API - SDK to implement a Calypso application
Paulo Barreto, CNA Technical Ticketing Expert, will present in details what is Keyple™ and how it works. This workshop will be the occasion to :
- Discover Keyple™ SDK capabilities and how it handles some peculiarities in the session mechanism and also different cards (Rev2, Rev3 and CLAP).
- See Keyple™ in action through an interactive demonstration of some key concepts
- Learn the status and planning for Keyple™.


Mobile Ticketing : a set of Calypso solutions for each context
Philippe Guillaumin, CNA WP Technical Coordinator, will present the Calypso HCE solution for NFC mobiles. By relying on the CNA specifications and guidelines, with a limited number of modifications on their validators, Calypso Networks have the opportunity to add an HCE ticketing service besides their full Calypso card solution. This workshop will be the opportunity to :
- Have a better understanding of the  security rules and infrastructure specified by CNA to mitigate the risks inherent of an HCE application.

- Identify the adaptations of an existing  AFC system to implement a Calypso HCE ticketing solution.

Pierre Terrée, CNA project leader and technical expert, will present:
- The Java Card Calypso Applet solution: its features, the platform compatibility & packaging, the last improvements & next evolution, the functional & security certifications.

- How to address major mobile players, Apple, Google, Samsung with Calypso


Account Based Ticketing and Calypso, the winning ticket
Following the ABT Calypso White Paper published last year, CNA launched a technical working group on the subject, the WP13, to study what part Calypso products could and should play in ABT, and how. The result will be the publication of “guidelines” for ABT implementation in Calypso systems.The purpose of this workshop is to share the philosophy and the key points of this guidelines and to discuss how they will help ticketing system architects having to design an ABT solution using Calypso portable objects, especially by addressing those key topics:

- Benefits as most as possible from ABT principles
- Allows a suitable level of interoperability
- Allows relevant risk management processes

- May take into account existing infrastructures


Brand Policy and Calypso Certification
Philippe Vappereau, CNA Chairman, Ralph Gambetta, General Secretary and Valentina Zajackowski, Marketing manager will present the new Calypso brand and certification strategy which will come into effect in January 2019. This workshop will be the opportunity to present the new license, governed by CNA, based on this certification and on a trademark policy, to ensure to users the expected performances of Calypso, and to providers a fair ecosystem. Innovatron is mandated by CNA to ensure the legal management of the new license. Topics which will be addressed:
- Calypso brand & trademark policy
- Content and added value of the new license
- Conditions and pricing
- Practical usage of the mark

Low cost card, high security level: CLAP offers an ideal solution for low-cost and high-volume contactless cards production.

For public transport, events, access control and many other applications, avoid magnetic stripes, barcode or QR-code, proprietary contactless tickets: take advantage of a fully secure and standardized contactless portable object with CLAP. It is a simplified Calypso Operating System which uses a subset of the Calypso rev3.1, with the same cryptography and security. It can be embedded in small components, paper or soft plastic, which allows it to be sold in automatic vending machines.

It has been designed by CNA to answer to operator needs, with a straight and fruitful cooperation with manufacturers in a dedicated CNA working group.


Main benefits

> High security and fast contactless transactions

> Fixed file structure similar to existing ones (e.g. CDLight, CD 97) for a smooth integration

into existing Calypso schemes

> Strictly compliant to all standards

> Available from multiple suppliers

> Reusable and reloadable cards for a more sustainable ticketing

> CNA end-to-end certification process for manufacturers

> Certified CLAP cards already available

> An immediate answer to quickly address occasional users

> Perfectly adapted to ABT schemes, highly secure authentication.

CLAP is the perfect solution for the anonymous user. Unlike the magnetic ticket it makes use of contactless as the Calypso card, thus lowering maintenance costs, and unlike the memory contactless ticket, being a subset of Calypso rev3.1, it allows for greater and quicker integration with existing Calypso card systems. Its level of security and durability allows networks to approach anonymous users like never before.

CNA at the "Assises Des Usages Numériques Citoyens"

The ADCET organised the thirteenth edition of its Assises, the 16th October 2018, in partnership with the European Metropolis of Lille.

On this occasion, the ADCET Assises became the Assises Des Usages Numériques Citoyens, around the AMC standard (Application Multiservices Citoyenne).

Philippe Vappereau, Chairman of CNA, Noël Philippe, Chairman of the ADCET and Alain Caffart, Chairman of Hoplink, made a presentation about Calypso, the AMC and Hoplink as the winning ticket for the MaaS.
Indeed, France has the opportunity, through those three tools, to promote and implement an interoperable, multimodal and multiservice solution that makes travel and daily life easier for citizens.

The Assises were also the occasion to discover “French Mobility”, the initiative of the French Ministry of Transport to facilitate innovation in mobility, the impacts of the European directive - DGMP -  on digital citizen uses and some presentations about local initiatives for multiservice and Mobility as a Service in Lille, Bordeaux, Rennes, Amiens, Lyon and the Normandy.
