The Basics

 

Java Card technology is the leading open,interoperable platform for smart cards and secure tokens. The Java Card Specifications provide the basis for cross-platform and cross-vendor applet interoperability.

The Java Card Classic Development Kit includes a complete, standalone development environment in which applets written for the Java Card platform can be developed and tested.

The Java Card Connected Development Kit includes a complete, standalone development environment in which classic applets, extended applets and web servlets written for the Java Card platform can be developed and tested.

The Java Card Development Kit includes a complete, standalone development environment in which applets written for the Java Card platform can be developed and tested..

The Java Card Protection Profile provides a modular set of security requirements designed specifically for the characteristics of the Java Card platform. It reduces the time and cost for Java Card products to complete security evaluations under Common Criteria.
