Workshop Description:

The purpose of the 3-day workshop is to provide a high-level tutorial of the six part standard, ISO/IEC 24727 - Identification cards – Integrated circuit card programming interfaces, a multi-part standard for interoperable identification, authentication, and signature services for credentials and applications.

The workshop will also provide sessions on the use of ISO/IEC 24727 to include an overview of NIST IR 7611, Use of ISO/IEC 24727 -- Service Access Layer Interface for Identity (SALII): Support for Development and use of Interoperable Identity Credentials, which describes ISO/IEC 24727 from the perspective of the Federal Information Processing Standard (FIPS) 201 – Personal Identity Verification (PIV) of Federal Employees and Contractors.

The National Institute of Standards and Technology, in conjunction with national and international standards bodies, is an active participant in the development of the multi-part international standard entitled “ISO/IEC 24727 - Identification cards – Integrated circuit card programming interfaces”.  The standard has been adopted by several international identity credential initiatives.  ISO/IEC 24727 provides application programming interfaces and identification, authentication, and signature services for interoperability.  Although the architecture can be used with other technologies, the focus of the standard is smart card technology.  The standard enables client applications to discover card and application capabilities and securely authenticate using normative authentication protocols.  The standard consists of six parts:

  • ISO/IEC 24727 - Identification cards Integrated circuit card programming interfaces Part 1: Architecture
  • ISO/IEC 24727 - Identification cards Integrated circuit card programming interfaces Part 2: Generic card interface
  • ISO/IEC 24727 - Identification cards Integrated circuit card programming interfaces Part 3: Application interface
  • ISO/IEC 24727 - Identification cards Integrated circuit card programming interfaces Part 4: API Administration
  • ISO/IEC 24727 - Identification cards Integrated circuit card programming interfaces Part 5: Testing
  • ISO/IEC 24727 - Identification cards Integrated circuit card programming interfaces Part 6: Registration authority procedures for the authentication protocols for interoperability
