This book is a wholly practical guide to the specification, development and programming of smart card systems, so you can eventually build your own smart card application. The book starts with a comprehensive introduction to the topic of smart cards, explaining component elements and the smart card microcontroller. It then moves on to providing information on operating systems, with application examples and case studies. The next chapters present design patterns for basic smart card systems and system architectures, leading up to setting out patterns for the realization of working applications. Chapter 7 gives useful advice on the monitoring of smart card applications, such as how to recognize potential attacks on its security and how to improve system integrity. The last two chapters go over issues that the smart card designer might encounter, discussing how to avoid and overcome design errors, and finally analysing real working applications.After three failed attempts to enter the correct PIN code, the error counter reached its maximum value and the smart card was ... The PIN and PUK codes were set to the same value during personalization, presumably for the sake of simplicity.
