Get involved in innovative work & projects

Beyond the technology, essential to the Natural Security Alliance, the international companies from all sectors that make up the working groups form a true community. This unique opportunity enables collaboration between members of different industries (card processors, merchants, technology vendors…) to share experiences and gain insight.

Smartphone integration working groups

The Natural Security Alliance is currently foreseeing two majors working groups related to smartphone integration. Both taskforces are designed to evaluate, study and work on the integration of Natural Security technology into smartphones. The first part is dedicated to communication technologies (e.g. Bluetooth Low Energy, Zigbee, WPAN) while the second one focuses more on the way to securely store Natural Security solution into mobile phones (e.g. TEE, Secure Element, and Rich OS).

Modalities

To contribute to the ongoing development of the Natural Security solution, each working group holds regular meetings and members are invited to two plenary sessions per year.
For members unable to physically attend meetings, web conferences are always available. Dedicated online collaboration tools provide a forum for exchanging information, through mailing lists and discussion boards.

In addition to meetings, summits are regularly organized to foster exchanges within the ecosystem between players from the entire market. These events provide opportunities for Alliance members during conferences to share a vision with other community members on a specific subject related to the Alliance (e.g.biometric technology, authentication).
A number of events are organized to evangelize and educate the market. All marketing and communication activities organized by the Natural Security Alliance are dedicated to sharing, collaborating and networking, and indeed aim to broaden the scope of the Alliance.
As a result, joining the Natural Security Alliance highlights and reinforces the position of each member as a major player in its sector, and visibility thanks to the growing awareness of Natural Security.
