Tags: Security

Summary : Smart cards are all the rage these days; from electronic passports, credit cards, other payment systems, and access control systems. Nick discusses smart card security, and how to go about reviewing the security of these types of systems. These systems can be either contact, or contactless, but the discussion will focus primarily on the application layer of the cards rather than the physical interface. He will also show some cool toys and drop some scripts useful for looking at these systems. Nick will show examples of techniques used on systems deployed in NZ.
