We’ve been working with ITSO on how to implement ‘ITSO with HCE’ since January 2015. In January 2016 we presented at Transport Ticketing in London about the work that we had done to date and this was also summarised in an article in the BCS ITNow magazine.
We have since produced a Functional specification for how ITSO with HCE will work in Phase 1. In addition we have produced minimum security requirements that will have to be met by ITSO with HCE implementations. Currently we are helping ITSO determine how ITSO with HCE implementations will be tested and certified by ITSO to ensure that they are secure enough to be allowed to be used on live ITSO schemes.
We continue to work with ITSO on moving ITSO with HCE forward. Here is the latest from ITSO about plans to pilot ITSO with HCE on a live ITSO scheme in West Yorkshire.
Working together with West Yorkshire Combined Authority, Transport for the North, Ecebs, Penrillian and Consult Hyperion, ITSO will be leading on a trial, due to commence in September 2016, which uses HCE-enabled mobile phones on a live ITSO scheme.
