Full Description

The security enhancement  solution for contact smart cards.The gold plated metallic contacts of the smart card chip must be eliminated;The smart card IC chip must be covered by the protective plastic;Advanced communication interface(s) must provide powering of the smart card IC chip having microprocessor and cryptocontroller over the protective plastic;Advanced remote data transmission method must prevent the simple data interception and eavesdropping.New technology must be completely compatible to the modern and future interindustry smart cards standards (ISO/IEC-7816, ISO/IEC-14443 and ISO/IEC-15693) that will allow a comparatively simple integration into the modern smart card technological environment and market.The Technology SolutionThe patented technology allows creation and operation of the Completely Hermetically Sealed Secure Contactless Microprocessor-based Smart Cards family comprising two basic models.
  1. Dual Interface Hermetically Sealed Secure Contactless Smart Card that employs the capacitive interface in the close coupling with the terminal and the inductive interface in remote mode, like vicinity or proximity contactless smart cards.
  2. Broadband Contactless Microprocessor-based Smart Card that employs the broadband frequency hopping method for the contactless smart card communication instead of present modulation methods.
Dual Interface Hermetically Sealed Secure Contactless Smart CardThe proprietary technology employs the capacitive interface in the close coupling with the terminal and the inductive interface in remote mode, like vicinity or proximity contactless smart cards.The close coupling powering is adequate to equip the card with microprocessor, cryptocontroller and memory similar to those of the modern contact smart cards and consequently to employ any advanced security algorithms and protocols requiring the microprocessor and cryptocontroller.Applications.In close coupling applications the dual interface card may operate in the usual swiping manner over the reader/writer’ slot like a conventional magnetic strip cards, or to operate when it is attached to the host terminal.Contactless payment applications: inductive interface operates in remote mode, like modern vicinity or proximity contactless smart cards.Broadband Contactless Microprocessor-based Smart Card

 The proprietary technology employs the broadband frequency hopping method for the contactless smart card communication instead of present modulation methods.

The microprocessor-based smart card is covered by the protective plastic.The proprietary technology employs the broadband frequency hopping method for the contactless smart card communication instead of present modulation methods.The technology provides the remote powering of the  contactless smart card that will be adequate to equip the card with microprocessor, cryptocontroller and memory similar to those of contact smart cards.The air-communication channel security will be gained by advanced encryption algorithms and protocols wherein the microprocessor and cryptocontroller are mandatory.Proprietary technology provides the higher data rates, extended operating range and anti-collision, cross-talk-less and intercept-less communication of many cards working simultaneously in the same interrogating area. Advantages of the proprietary technology·        Higher data rates.·        Remote powering of the smart card having microprocessor, cryptocontroller and memory similar to those of contact smart cards.·        Anti-collision, cross-talk-less and intercept-less communication of many cards working simultaneously in the same interrogating area.·        Extended operating range.Applications.Any types of pricing and individual access remote control secure applications that require personal identification, authentification and payment are possible with the same smart card:·  Transportation applications: ticketing and mass transit, intelligent transportation service, tracking on highway and in urban traffic, non-stop payment on the highway tollgates.·  Tracking portable antitheft RFID systems integrated into the vehicles and motor-bikes. Anti-theft protection system for a motor vehicle.·  Identification: electronic passport, national ID, social / healthcare, object identification, access control: physical and to the networks and computers.·   Contactless payment: petrol retailing, both petrol and service station convenience retailing, parking, high-way tall gate, etc.;·  Battery-less NFC.·  Future integration into a broadband wireless access local and metropolitan area networks (ANSI/IEEE Std. 802.xx).
