The Spanish Intellectual Property Office has issued its patent 2186534, ADAPTADOR DE TARJETAS INTELIGENTES A PUERTO ESTÁNDAR PARA DISPOSITIVOS CON CONEXIÃâ€Å“N A INTERNET ORIENTADO A TRANSACCIONES TELEMÁTICAS (Smart Card Adapter to Standard Ports for Online Devices for Telematics Transactions) to Kalysis Group.

The Spanish office for Patents made public the Kalysis patent # 200101056. This opens up Pandoras Box in a very incipient sector: applications for network connected smart cards. The patent application was submitted to the Spanish Patent Office on May 9, 2001, and it is the first and only patent in Spain in the area of Digital ID and ePayment based on SmartCards. This patent has strong industrial and legal consequences for the early development and use of intelligent cards on the Internet and over wireless networks. From the moment of publication, the use of SmartCards, card readers and their applications on the Internet in the form of prototypes from the Social Security, voting identification, Digital ID, etc., including those made by companies such as VISA, Europay, Mastercard, SUN, Deutsche Bank or SEMA or other products on the market such as Cryptokit from the National Factory of Coins and Stamps; would all be violating the industrial property right of Kalysis. Since 2001, Kalysis has been the first company in the world to have capabilities to offer (multi) applications online for SmartCards and is also its inventor. The publication of the State of Technology number 2186534, by the Spanish Patent Office, confirms the monopoly for Kalysis solutions for Digital ID and ePayment based on SmartCards and gives Kalysis the leadership in a sector that has a growth potential of 100% for this year.
