Feature Overview

The Nevis Access App is a standardized Access App. It is possible to create customer-branded instances of the Nevis Access App. The Nevis Access App offers the following functionality:

Nevis provides regular releases of the Access Apps to customers and partners, implements improvements, ensures that bugs are fixed and new OS versions are supported.

Hardware Requirements

Because of the high-security nature of the Nevis Access App, it requires the presence of a TEE/SE1. For Apple devices, this is ensured by the iOS12+ limitation. Also, most currently available Android devices contain a TEE/SE, except some (usually low-budget) models.

Apple iPod Touch

The Apple iPod Touch lacks a TEE/SE, therefore it is not supported.

Access App Flavors

The Access App is delivered in two flavors:

  • Integration

    Use the Integration flavor of the Access App in the context of testing and development. This flavor can be run on emulators. It also provides increased logging (showing the network requests and responses for example).

  • Production:

    Deliver the Production flavor of the Access App to end users.


For a description of the steps that are required to sign the app per platform, refer to Prepare Android publication or Prepare iOS Publication.
