PLASTIC CARD COMPUTER CHIP IC = Integrated Circuits of the chip General International Standards Size: ISO7610 Specification:
ISO 7816 (Contact Cards)
ISO 14443 (Contactless Cards) Chips Producer - Microprocessor (CPU) - Memory (RAM/ROM/EPROM) - I/O Interface (Input/Output) Usual Specifications CPU - 8-bits RAM - 128-780 bytes ROM - 4-20 KB EPROM - 1-16 KB CPU design format -
RISC (Reduced Instruction Set Computing) equipped with on-chip hardware
encryption module
New - Public Key Encryption
Old - Private Key Encryption Clock Speed
run at 5 MHz Embedded Chips Architecture C1 - Vcc = Voltage Supply (5V) C5 - Grd = Voltage Earthing (0V) Embedded Chips Architecture C2 - Rst = Reset the logics and information Warm Reset: Signal sending Cold Reset: Signal Interruption Embedded Chips Architecture C6 - Vpp = Supply higher Programming Voltage to EPROM (ABANDONED) Embedded Chips Architecture C3 - Clk = Receive external input of the logics and arithmetic instructions (e.g. Readers) Embedded Chips Architecture C7 - I/O = Communicate between chips circuits and external network
(Signal buses) 1. Supply Voltage 2. Carry out logic & arithmetic
instructions 3. Communicate between integrated circuit chips & outside networks
(Send & Receive data) AN OVERVIEW 4. Reserve for extra use Dynamic Application COS JAVA
Global Platform MasterCard
Operating Systems) Advantages Portable Microchips stored with data Convenient transaction of data + Information Security Suppose
2 different card run 2 different COS.

Card A runs Fixed File Structure.
Card B runs Dynamic Application.

Which one requires larger RAM?
Which one requires larger ROM? Fixed File Structure
Card Operating System (COS) ALL:
ARE PRESET by card issuer. Secured Computing & Strorage WORKLOAD PERCENTAGE BONITA CHIU (53093404) - 100%
CHARLES YUEN (53117209) - 100%
HIU CHING YU (53091343) - 100%
YUK HIN CHAN (53092014) - 100% Type of smart cards Most common type
Electrical contacts (metallic chip) <-> card reader
Connector: bonded to
the encapsulated chip
in the card 1. Contact cards Examples:
Straight Memory Cards
Protected / Segmented Memory Cards
Stored Value Memory Cards 1. Contact cards Applications:
network security
access control
electronic cash 2. Contactless cards Examples: proximity cards, Gen 2 UHF card

The limits of cryptographic functions (hackers)
The limits of user memory
The limited distance between card and reader 2. Contactless cards Applications: 3. Multi Component Cards Examples: ISO7816, ISO14443

vending passes
access control
network security 1. Contact readers The most common type
Requires physical connections
Enables larger data transport 1. Contact readers Advantages
more secure (direct coupling to the reader)
High negotiated speed (up to 115 kilo baud)

Applications: payment 2. Contactless reader Works with a radio frequency
The card comes close to the reader 2. Contactless reader Applications:
Physical Access Control
Transportation Smart Card
Readers Contact
Readers Contactless

QUESTIONS ENTER! Question 1 Suppose
2 different card run 2 different COS.

Card A runs Fixed File Structure.
Card B runs Dynamic Application.

Which one requires larger RAM?
Which one requires larger ROM? Question 3 WHAT is the DIFFERENCE

SECURITY SYSTEMS were introduced.
WHICH one is better for data/information security? STEP 1: Analyzing Threat Source INTERNAL THREATS EXTERNAL THREATS System plughole (Hard&Soft ware)
Data plughole (Data)
Unethical technicians (personnel) Hardware <> Software <> Data <> Personnel Virus & Malware
(Hard&Soft ware, Data)
Hackers (Personnel) Step 2: Deployment & Design Hardware <> Software
<> Data <> Personnel Step 3: Road Test Test by HACKING the system yourself Learn the weak points
of the system Step 4: Synthesis Modify the security systems after learning about the weak points Employ the system Employ Systems
continuous auditing & periodic secured monitoring and maintenance Smart Card Security Mechanisms DATA
Network Inside the computer world,
there are many
unexpected and unknown threats.
Therefore, we need to have SECURITY System thinking of
data security mechanism Data Integrity 1 3 Authentication
& Non-Repudiation Confidentiality 2 Authorization
& Delegation 4 Auditing & Logging 5 Management 6 Was all the data arrived and not lost or corrupted? Are all the data correct & come from the right source? Can the sender confirm receipt? Only the sender & receiver can access the data? Can I set who I want to share the data with secured way? Can I ensure the security system is work functionally? Can I be allowed to manage the system administration? An OVERVIEW of system
data security mechanism 1. Ensure information security Data Originality
Personnel Identity
Authorized Retrieval 2. Ensure system administration Data Sharing
Security System Monitoring & Management Data Integrity Function: Ensure data not being corrupted Mechanism: Assign an identity to each datum by cryptography Verify the ID and characteristics of each datum Any attempt of change in ID will be noted down Authentication Function:
Ensure data transaction is retrieved by
the right person Mechanism: Adoption of Key Encryption System
(Confidentiality) Different kinds of Data Encryption Standard and System & Digital Signature will be further discussed Non-Repudiation Function:
Ensure the data transaction is not permitted by third party Mechanism: Adoption of Key Encryption System
(Confidentiality) Authorization & Delegation Function: ensure proper procedures done to authorize third party to manage system
Utilize the third party management Mechanism: Auditing and Logging Function: ensure the system is functioning well with constant monitoring Mechanism: By Soft Engineering Methods Example: Policies and Procedures Management Function: ensure the users are authorized to manage the security system Mechanism: By Soft Engineering Methods Example: Setting authorized management policy Cryptography Algorithm
(Data Encryption System) Encryption & Decryption Symmetric Encryption System Data encrypted & decrypted with the same key (secret key) Asymmetric Encryption System (Public Key) Data encrypted & decrypted with the public keys & private keys Detailed Asymmetrical Encryption System (Public Key) HOWEVER, in real life,
DATA is not completely safe.

Your data can be physically stolen
(for example your octopus card is being stolen) Although the card might be found, however,
you may already suffer from lost. YOU SHOULD BE CAREFUL YOURSELF!!! Question 2 Are the smart card readers provide the computing base for the smart cards? You may use ATM as an example Question 5 Symmetrical & Asymmetrical Cryptography were introduced.
