Contactless Smart Cards White Paper Released

PRINCETON JUNCTION, N.J.—A new Smart Card Alliance white
paper recently released says contactless smart cards can
add higher security to everyday ID credentials that
employees use to access buildings, airports and other
secure facilities. At the same time, the technology paves
the way to add new applications like network access

The white paper, called “Contactless Technology for Secure Physical Access: Technology and Standards Choices”, provides a tutorial on contactless technology in access control. Topics include a discussion of the different types of contactless technology, and relevant standards and the advantages of contactless smart cards for physical access. “This report is timely because of the national focus on security. There is a lot of pent-up interest in this paper from public sector managers seeking to better understand contactless smart card options,” said Mary Dixon, director of the Department of Defense Access Card Office.
