AIX-EN-PROVENCE, France --(Business Wire)--
INSIDE Secure (Euronext: INSD), a leader in embedded security solutions
for mobile and connected devices, today announced a new Single Wire

extension of the 2008 SWP and HCI (Host Controller Interface)
cross-license agreement and provides a standard interface for the INSIDE

GEMALTO SWP as the de facto standard for Secure Element connection to
Smartphone application processors.

SWP and HCI for Near Field Commutations (NFC) technology, which was at
the center of the original agreement between the two companies.

to support the momentum of growing NFC ecosystems to benefit service
providers and consumers alike," said Fr�d�ric Vasnier, Executive
Vice President Embedded Software & Products at Gemalto.
"Both Gemalto and INSIDE Secure have a long partnership on NFC and
related technologies and this new agreement expands our commitment to
SWP," said Loic Hamon, Vice-President Corporate Development of INSIDE
Secure. "Our state-of-the-art VaultSEcure Secure Element family will
benefit from this de facto interface to connect to mobile phones,
tablets, desktop computers and M2M capable devices application
