  • Patent number: 8750522
    Abstract: A method and security system is provided for the secure and unequivocal encoding of a security module, for example, a chip card. A security module may be personalized during the manufacturing process in a secure environment, the manufacturer storing a unique identifier (IDSM1) in a memory of the security module. The secure encoding to ensure the uniqueness of the security module is achieved because the item of information to be kept secret and intended for the security module is encrypted not only by a communication key, but by the unique identifier (IDSM1) of the security module. This ensures that the item of information to be kept secret is able to be decrypted only by the security module with which the unique identifier (IDSM1) is associated, and used for safety-relevant applications.
