Cryptographic Module Validation Program CMVP

Certificate #2338


Module Name
HiCOS Combi PKI Native Smart Card
FIPS 140-2
 Historical Reason
SP 800-131A transition which disallows key wrapping not compliant to SP 800-38F.
Overall Level
When operated in FIPS mode
Security Level Exceptions
  • Cryptographic Module Ports and Interfaces: Level 3
  • Roles, Services, and Authentication: Level 3
  • Physical Security: Level 3
  • EMI/EMC: Level 3
  • Design Assurance: Level 3
Module Type
The HiCOS Combi PKI native smart card module is a single chip implementation of a cryptographic module that supports ISO-7816 contact interface and ISO-14443 contactless interface. The HiCOS Combi PKI native smart card module is mounted in an ID-1 class smart card body that adheres to ISO/IEC specifications for Integrated Circuit Chip (ICC) based identification cards. The module consists of the chip (ICC), the contact faceplate, the contactless faceplate, and the electronic connectors between the chip and contact pad/antenna, all contained within an epoxy substrate.
