Secure Identification Proximity Devices

About This Committee

INCITS/Secure Identification Proximity Devices is a Task Group to INCITS/ID-Cards and has responsibility to review and update the standards associated with:

• Integrated Circuit Cards with and without Contacts
• Identification devices that include: smart cards, non-card formats, tickets --- Contactless Proximity integrated circuit(s) cards (PICCs), proximity coupling devices--readers (PCDs) and vicinity integrated circuit cards (VICCs)
• Related Interoperability aspects, including building blocks for identity management via mobile devices

Major areas of responsibility are standards including, but not limited to:

• ISO/IEC 7816: Identification cards -- Integrated circuit cards (with and without contacts) security and commands and data elements for interchange and card management, Cards and Security Devices for Personal Identification
• ISO/IEC 14443 Contactless Proximity Objects
• ISO/IEC 15693 Contactless Vicinity Objects, ISO/IEC 23220 Building Blocks for Identity Management via Mobile Devices
• ISO/IEC 23465 Card and Security devices for personal identification – programming interfaces for security devices.

Associated standards work includes: electrical parameters, communications interfaces, security protocols and high-level applications that utilize these standards.

This Task Group is the U.S. TAG to ISO/IEC JTC 1/SC 17/WG 4, WG 8, and WG11.

Note: INCITS/Secure Identification Proximity Devices was formerly known as INCITS/IC-Cards - Circuits, Interfaces and Protocols for Secure Devices until January 2022.
