Just like regular CPUs, microprocessors also require their own OS.
The Card Operating System (COS) controls important functions, such as:
Data transfer between card and terminal
Processing of information
Protection against unauthorized access
With the unveiling of ABACOS eGK 2.0, PAV CARD has developed a proprietary and powerful card operating system. Our COS is certified and fully complies with Gematik industry standards.
ABACOS was specifically designed to meet the high demands and future needs of the health care industry. Specifically, it will manage eGK’s requirements for personal identification as outlined by Gematik.
Other applications include security and authentication (Card-to-server C2S, Card-to-card C2C), digital signatures and encryption. ABACOS supports all types of security and encryption formats, such as symmetrical Triple DES, AES and asymmetrical RSA.
