With cv act library/sc crypto vision offers a cryptographic library which is especially optimized for the integration of security ICs, just as they are used in smart cards, SIM modules, NFC and USB tokens. On these platforms the library offers an efficient way to realize a complete system with the highest security standards and best performance. Integrated into a smart card operating system, the quality of the cv act library/sc has been proven by several successful evaluations, according to Common Criteria and ITSEC. The library is structured in such a way that it can be used on different microprocessors, while the internal security measures are adapted to specific hardware characteristics. This whitepaper describes the basic functions and architecture of the library.
