Microprocessor cards can store information, carry out local processing on the data stored, and perform complex calculations. These cards take the form of either “contact” cards which require a card reader or “contactless” cards which use radio frequency signals to operate. Today, smart cards are used by millions of cardholders worldwide and are at work in more than 90 countries, primarily in Europe and the Far East, processing point-of-sale transactions, managing records, and protecting computers and secure facilities....
