A Smart Card is a chip embedded onto a card made of plastic, the chip is considered as a programmable microprocessor that is used for authentication, transaction and storage of data. The data is usually associated with either value, information, or both and is stored and processed within the card’s chip which is accordingly programmed. The card data is read by the help of a reader that is part of a computer. Systems that facilitate Smart Cardsare in use today.
