Smart Card Technology: New Methods for Computer Access Control
Martha E. Haykin, Robert B.J. Warnar
A smart card is a credit-card-sized device containing one or more integrated circuit chips, which perform the functions of a microprocessor, memory, and an input/output interface. Smart cards, and other related devices, may be used to provide an increased level of security in applications requiring controlled access to sensitive information. This publication describes the basic components of a smart card, and the goals and obstacles of smart card application development. Possible roles for smart cards in modern computer security systems and research conducted at the National Bureau of Standards (NBS) in the area of smart card access control systems are discussed. A forcast is made for the characteristics and applications of future smart cards and related devices. An overview of current standards activities for smart cards is given in an appendix.
