ISG Smart Card and IoT Security Centre

The Smart Card Centre (SCC) was founded in October 2002 by Royal Holloway University of London, Vodafone and Giesecke & Devrient as a world-wide centre of excellence for training and research into security issues associated with smart cards, tokens and mobile devices. Today it receives support from a wide range of organisations, most notably Orange Labs (UK), the UK Cards Association, Transport for London and ITSO. It is a testimony to the world-wide reputation of the Information Security Group, which such major organisations chose to locate and support the Smart Card Centre at Royal Holloway.
