SMART CARDS AND CHIP TECHNOLOGY
Contactless smart chip technology, a form of proven smart card technology, is used increasingly in applications that must protect personal information or deliver fast, secure transactions. Leveraging many years of smart card security developments, contactless smart chips have the ability to store, protect, manage, and provide access to secure data and to support the security protocols and algorithm required by an application. In addition, contactless smart chip technology delivers the convenience, durability, and reliability required by applications that must support fast transaction throughput in demanding environments.
Contactless smart chip technology is available in varieties of forms- plastic cards, watches, documents, and other handheld devices such as mobile phone.
The benefits of smart cards are directly related to the volume of information and applications that are programmed for use on a card. A single contact/contactless smart card can be programmed with multiple banking credentials, medical entitlement, driver’s license/public transport entitlement, loyalty programs and club memberships to name just a few. Multifactor and proximity authentication can and has been embedded into smart cards to increase the security of all services on the card.
