Light Card Capabilities Form – User Guide
v1.11 – January, 2013
Purpose of this document
As part of the Vendor Product Approval Process, the Light Card Capabilities Form aims at gathering in a very
synthetic document the features required to request a Letter of Approval in case the product already passed the
Interface and Application Testing and the Compliance Assessment and Security Testing.
In other words, a Card Vendor must submit this form if it wants to request a Letter of Approval for a product that
already passed the aforementioned steps.
This Light Card Capabilities Form (Light CCF) shall be provided to MasterCard in a Microsoft Word format only at:
This form does not require the Vendor to define the value of the parameters of the application but we warn the
Vendor that the parameters shall have the same values as the ones used to personalize the product for the Interface
and Application Testing during the initial approval. Therefore we consider that when providing the Light CCF the
Vendor acknowledges that the configuration of the product is strictly identical to the one used during the initial
approval. The parameters will still be checked during the CPV session.
This document will provide explanations over several fields of the Light CCF and help the Vendors to fill it in.
Product Identification
Filename of the Light CCF
The name of the product and the version of the Light CCF (not the template version) shall appear somehow into the
filename. This version is very helpful to track the updates. This version shall be incremented into the filename for
each update of the Light CCF.
A5. Product Technical Name and Version
This field provides the name and the version that will be used to identify the product. Name and version have to be
unique. Therefore we will not accept name and version strictly identical to the ones of the father product.
When the name of the product is inspired with the name of the father product we recommend adding into this field a
few characters identifying the Vendor itself.
A6. Product Commercial Name and Version
There is no constraint about this field.
A6b. Product Name and Version used for CAST registration
The value of this field must be the same as the one that appears under the field ‘Master Product Name’ of the Cast
A8 vs. A8b.
A8 defines the specification used for the development of the payment application while A8b defines how the product
will be used in the field.
E.g. a Vendor might want to get an M/Chip 4 LoA for a product based on an application developed according to the
PayPass – M/Chip 1.3.1 specification.
A28. Update History
Any updated field shall be indicated in field A28. This field will be used to quickly track the changes from one file
version to another.
A29. Integrated Circuit licensed by Cryptography Research Inc.
The checkbox in field A29 aims at confirming that the Integrated Circuit used in your product has been licensed by
Cryptography Research Inc.
