"A smart card is a plastic card about the size of a credit card, with an embedded microchip that can be loaded with data, used for electronic cash payments,telephone calling, and other applications, and then periodically refreshed for additional use. Currently or soon, you may be able to use a smart card to: 
> Pay for parking at parking meters or to get on subways, trains, or buses
> Establish your identity when logging on to an Internet access provider or to an online bank
> Dial a connection on a mobile telephone and be charged on a per-call basis
> Give hospitals or doctors personal data without filling out a form
> Buy gasoline at a gasoline station
> stores on the Web (a kind of cybercash) 
> Make small purchases at electronic

Over a billion smart cards are already in use. Currently, Europe is the region where they are most used. Ovum, a research firm, predicts that 2.7 billion smart cards will be shipped annually by 2003. Another study forecasts a $26.5 billion market for recharging smart cards by 2005.

Smart cards often called Proximity or RFID cards are becoming more popular among business and hotels and other controlled secure facilities. These smart cards can have a single electronic component to multiple components packaged into a very thin plastic card. The card emits a low power signal around the device and a receiver that is specifically tuned to locate the card is matched to a computer controlled data base that can verify the presence of the card. These cards are found at airport Clear Card check points, Passports, and even quick pay terminals at some fuel stations.

How Smart Cards Work
A smart card contains more information than a magnetic stripe card and it can be programmed for different applications. Some cards can contain programming and data to support multiple applications and some can be updated to add new applications after they are issued. Smart cards can be designed to be inserted into a slot and read by a special reader or to be read at a distance, such as at a toll booth. Cards can be disposable (as at a trade-show) or reloadable (for most applications). An industry standard interface between programming and PC hardware in a smart card has been defined by the PC/SC Working Group, representing Microsoft, IBM, Bull, Schlumberger, and other interested companies. Another standard is called OpenCard. There are two leading smart card operating systems: JavaCard and MULTOS.

        A smart card is a small plastic card containing a computer chip. People use smart cards along with personal identification numbers (PINs) to log on to a network, a computer, or a device. Using a smart card is more secure than using a password because it's more difficult for someone to steal a smart card and learn your PIN than to learn your password.Smart cards are generally issued by information technology (IT) departments in large organizations. To use a smart card, you also need a smart card reader—a device that’s installed in or connected to your computer and that can read the information stored on a smart card.
