This part of prEN 1546 defines the detailed security architecture for IEP systems as they are described in prEN 1546-1. It also describes the application protocols the use of cryptographic algorithms and some underlying assumptions concerning the key management necessary to implement IEP systems with sufficient security levels. The general architecture described here allows many types of implementation. It should be noted that the informative annexes of this standard focus on particular implementations.
