Smart Cards

Biometrics are an authentication technology; smart cards can be a storage, processing, and/or authentication technology. In certain applications, the two technologies compete, such that an institution may deploy smart cards instead of biometrics for access control, or vice versa. Increasingly, the two technologies are deployed in conjunction, strengthening each other's capabilities. 

Typically, biometric data is stored on a smart card. Matching can take place on a local PC or central server, on the reader itself, even within the smart card's internal memory. The result of a biometric match can be to unlock a protected area of a card, such as account information, or to release a card-based PIN or certificate to an external application.

BioEnable has worked with all major smart card platforms and has a full working knowledge of the key standards and infrastructure issues which frame the use of biometrics in smart card applications. Areas of expertise include the following:

  • Java Card, Multos

  • EMV, Mondex

  • PC/SC, OCF

  • ISO 7816-x

  • Cryptographic cards: Gemplus, Schlumberger, VISA Cash, Mondex, Proton

  • SAM design and implementation 

  • Match-on-card architecture

  • Card management systems and middleware

  • Card issuance and lifecycles
