Global Architecture

Global Architecture of Keyple
Global Architecture of Keyple

Keyple is currently divided in two major layers:

  • The ‘Keyple Core’ : a smart card API which allows managing smart card readers in a generic way, whaterver the reader driver or environment, and for standalone or distributed solution.
  • A ‘Calypso Keyple extension’ : a high-level Calypso Processing API allowing to operate commands with a Calypso Portable Object, and to manage a secure Calypso transaction.

Dedicated reader’s plugins have to be implemented in order to interface the Plugin API with the specific reader’s drivers.
