What Makes the Smart Card “Smart”?
In this chapter, we describe the different types of smart cards, explain their features and benefits, and give some recommendations on when to use which type. We also introduce the smart card hardware in this chapter. Since the focus of this book is on the software side, we will provide only a basic introduction to hardware terminology and concepts. If you have worked with smart cards before, you will probably want to skip this chapter.
