The ACOS6 SDK from ACS is a complete software development kit for professional developers wanting to build programs or applications based around the ACOS6 card.

The ACOS6 Multi-application & Purse Card is a high speed and flexible smartcard designed to address the requirements of multiple applications and multiple e-purses with secure and hierarchical access of multiple levels. ACOS6 provides a secure environment for each independent application. This allows many applications to be incorporated onto one card thus providing cost effective solutions to developers, and a convenient platform to end users.

Security provided by ACOS6 can further be enhanced by the ACOS6 SAM card which enables mutual authentication, secure messaging and key diversification.

SDK contains:
  • 1 x ACR38 Smartcard Reader with SAM slot
  • 5 x ACOS6 Multi-Application & Purse smartcards
  • 5 x ACOS6-SAM Secure Access Module smartcards
  • 5 x ACOS3 Microprocessor smartcards
  • 1 x Development CD

The ACOS6 card is ideal for a wide range of applications which require multiple secure e-purses such as government services, payment applications, online top-up, loyalty programs etc.


ACOS6 cards provide the following features:
  • Compliance with ISO 7816 parts 1,2,3 and 4
  • High baud rate switchable from 9600 to 14,400, 28,800, 57,600, 115,200 and 223,200 bps.
  • Full 32K (ACOS6-SAM) or 64K (ACOS6) of EEPROM memory for application data.
  • Supports ISO 7816 Part 4 file structures:
    • Transparent
    • Linear fixed
    • Linear variable
    • Cyclic
  • DES/Triple DES capability.
  • Mutual authentication with session key generation.
  • Multilevel secured access hierarchy.
  • Anti-tearing done on file headers and PIN commands.
  • Secure access modules pairs with ACOS2 and ACOS3.
  • Stores and performs all key operations on ACOS2/3 including mutual authentication, encrypted PIN submission, secure messaging and ePurse commands.
  • Hardware based random number generator compliant to FIPS140-2
  • Multiple secure E-purse available for payment applications
