IAV uses smart cards from various automobile manufacturers

The challenge for IAV

With more than 7,000 employees, IAV (Ingenieurgesellschaft Auto und Verkehr) is one of the world’s leading engineering service providers for the automotive industry. Due to the requirements it had set itself and the increased security requirements of automobile manufacturers, IAV needed a solution for authentication that could handle a large number of different key memories (smart cards) as flexibly as possible.

Our solution for IAV

IAV opted for the smartcard middleware SCinterface from cryptovision. SCinterface not only supports the most important smartcard operating systems, but also all important card profiles. Thanks to this flexibility, IAV is now in a position to use employee cards (smartcards) from different automobile manufacturers in different projects. This not only reduces IT costs, but also minimizes set-up times.
