SchlumbergerSema Cyberflex* JavaCard™ Obtains Common Criteria EAL4+ Security Certification

New Certification Confirms Strongest Possible Security for Enterprise and Government Applications

Paris , September 3, 2002 - SchlumbergerSema, a business unit of Schlumberger Limited, has been awarded the Common Criteria EAL4+ Certificate by the French DCSSI (Direction Centrale de la Sécurité de Systèmes d'Informations) in recognition of the high level of security provided by its Cyberflex JavaCard. The card meets all the pre-requisites of today's enterprises and government organizations: protection for the privacy of individuals, portability, convenience, sophisticated data storage, maximum flexibility, security and resistance to counterfeiting. The Cyberflex JavaCard is also available as part of the Schlumberger DeXa.Badge* offering, an identity management security solution which includes a card issuance and management system for efficient administration throughout the lifecycle of the card.

The unique security features offered by the Cyberflex 32K card make it the first JavaCard product to receive accreditation for its operating system and applet, as well as its chip. SchlumbergerSema is the only JavaCard manufacturer to claim the integrated Digital Signature Applet as part of the entire certified product in compliance with the mandatory European CEN Protection Profile.

The Common Criteria EAL4+ Certificate is a recognized security assessment standard that is complementary to the US FIPS certificate, an accreditation previously obtained by SchlumbergerSema ahead of any other company. SchlumbergerSema has already delivered one million of its Cyberflex Access FIPS 140-1 level 2 cards for worldwide deployment by the US Department of Defense (DoD), and its CACTUS* middleware was recently selected by the DoD to complete the integrated security solution. The newly certified card is available for organizations worldwide -- such as government and national defense agencies, banks and NATO -- which rely on the same top-level security for their operations.

SchlumbergerSema has used its technological expertise and market knowledge to produce a card that meets all market requirements for proven security combined with high-level user operability and flexibility. Since the card is global platform-compliant, all applets can be stored on a single card that can perform a range of multi-application functions.

Drawing on more than 20 years experience in pioneering smart card innovation and leadership using Java™ technology, SchlumbergerSema has sold more than 2.6 billion smart cards to date, including over 100 million JavaCards. SchlumbergerSema has a proven track record delivering a wide range of business solutions, services and products that improve the competitive advantage of service and governmental organizations.
