Smart Card and Devices

  • I worked for a Defense Contractor.
  • My assignment was at DMDC (Defense Manpower Data Center).
    Every employee and contractor was issued a Smart Card, which has a processor and memory to hold Biometrics (e.g. fingerprint), Photo ID, and Cryptographic Keys.
    One has to use a Smart Card to (a) enter specified areas of the building (b) logging on to a computer system.
    Smart cards were not cheap at that time, and there were limitations in the resources (e.g. memory on the card)
  • Smart devices (e.g. smart phones) are ubiquitous.
    Smart cars (e.g. driver-less) are available.
