G&D announces MobiCore® integrated security platform to
support Samsung GALAXY S III in Europe

Munich, May 4, 2012 – Giesecke & Devrient (G&D) today announced that its
MobiCore security platform will be integrated in Samsung GALAXY S III
smartphones distributed in Europe. Thanks to MobiCore, the NFC-capable
smartphone from Samsung will be the first mobile device to boast a protected
area on its application processor in which security-sensitive applications can
be securely run and downloaded dynamically. The MobiCore platform will
provide a secure execution environment for mobile payments authentication,
emails or corporate VPN access.

The first application installed in the Mobicore-protected area on the Samsung GALAXY
S III is a digital rights management (DRM) application which provides digital content with
effective protection against misuse. In addition, G&D’s Trusted Service Management
(TSM) solution will enable organizations such as network operators and banks to install
and customize additional security-critical apps in the protected area of the smartphone.
Samsung GALAXY S III, with integrated MobiCore security platform, will be made
commercially available first in Europe and will then be rolled out globally.
