Oracle unveils Java Card 3.1 for securing IoT devices

January 17, 2019 / Clare Hopping

Oracle has revealed the latest version of its Java Card, used for securing internet of things (IoT) devices such as smartwatches and other hardware that process large amounts of information. Java Card 3.1 can be used in a vast array of applications, from telecoms devices and contactless payments terminals to cars, smart meters and wearables. It will help simplify the rollout of 5G technologies, securing the transfer of data between the device and the network, whether 5G or NBIoT networks. “Connected devices’ volumes are expected to increase in the upcoming years, posing an increasingly complex challenge as growth adds system complexity to the infrastructure handling device data,” Volker Gerstenberger, president and chair of the Java Card Forum said.
