In a side-channel attack on a contactless smart card
, the data-and operation-dependent power consumption is generally measured indirectly via the EM field of the target device by using an EM probe [3,4].
ACS's entry is the contactless smart card
reader module technology, which refers to the platform for many of its smart card readers, developed based on 13.56MHz NFC (Near Field Communication) technology.
pcProx Plus multi-technology readers combine the capability to read over 35 different 125kHz and 13.56MHz proximity and contactless smart cards
in the same reader.
A far more secure and flexible option is the new generation of contactless smart cards
that use encryption and the internal computing power of a smart chip, reducing the risk of data being compromised or cards being duplicated.
Among products that ACS will be showing are ACR123, a terminal for MasterCard[R] PayPass[TM] and Visa payWave[R] payment applications; ACR1251, a CCID-compliant NFC Reader that supports card read/write operations, card emulation and P2P communication; and ACR122U, a contactless smart card
reader/writer that supports Mifare cards, ISO 14443 A and B cards, and all four types of NFC tags.
14 -- HID Global, trusted leader in solutions for the delivery of secure identity, and Sony Corporation today announced a jointly developed contactless smart card
reader platform that embeds secure access control capabilities and Near Field Communication (NFC) functionality into laptops and other mobile devices.
HID Corp., a manufacturer of contactless access control cards and readers, has released the iCLASS CP400 Contactless Smart Card
Contactless smart cards
use radio frequency (RF) technology for communication between a contactless smart card
and the card reader.
The EdgeReader is an integrated contactless smart card
reader and access control processor.
