Part of the German federal government’s NFC initiative, OPTIMOS is a research project that aims to create an open NFC ecosystem for the mobile use of secure identities for mobile services.


The project uses examples of national e-ticketing in public transport to define and test applications. The findings will contribute to international NFC standardisation with the goal of ensuring the global interoperable use of NFC devices in the medium term.
