This book provides generic solutions for programming smart cards, enabling the creation of working applications and systems. Key features:* Presents a comprehensive introduction to the topic of smart cards, explaining component elements and the smart card microcontrollers.* Sets out information on operating systems with case studies of a range of applications including credit card security, mobile phones and transport payment cards.* Gives detailed advice on the monitoring of smart card applications, recognizing potential attacks on security and improving system integrity.* Provides modules and examples so that all types of systems can be built up from a small number of individual components.* Offers guidelines on avoiding and overcoming design errors.
