Name M.O.S.T. Toolz® - Microprocessor Smart Card Development Kit
Manufacturer CardLogix Corporation
Description Microprocessor smart card development kit with software and SCM card reader

Designed for multi-application and high security microprocessor based smart card systems, M.O.S.T. Toolz® Card Development Kit features robust software and hardware components for rapid system development. M.O.S.T. Toolz gives you the power to deliver multiple applications and services on a single card, allowing for fast system design and easy updating without the need for card re-issue.

M.O.S.T. Toolz Includes:

  • M.O.S.T. Card Configuration Utility
  • Five CPU cards for learning and development
  • A choice of 3 types of smart card readers USB, PCMCIA or ExpressCard (these readers support both memory and microprocessor cards)
  • Winplex® API and example source code
  • SCard and PC/SC utility for greater hardware control

System Features:

  • Highest rated development tools available
  • Complete toolset--no additional hardware necessary
  • Wide range of reader choices, pre and post-design
  • Enhanced data security through sophisticated on-card file management
  • Full application support through the Winplex library

The M.O.S.T. Card File Creation Utility lets you build an on-card file system with complete data modeling of the security parameters required by ISO 7816. After the card is configured, the tool allows for data loading of a test card that can then be put into the designer's application for real time evaluation.

The kit also has with Winplex middleware and a PC/SC Utility. These components enable a programmer to create a smart card-based transaction system that issues, updates and transacts securely throughout the whole lifecycle of a card while protecting user ID, card access and file information.

Winplex was created by CardLogix and is the only smart card middleware that enables system design with support for multiple card types (both memory and microprocessor). Multiple reader types i.e. USB, serial, kiosk, PCMCIA, keyboard wedge and magnetic stripes are all supported, as well as multiple readers on the same PC. This is all accomplished with the one command set. The API supports AES, DES and Triple DES encryption and the SHA 1 and 256 authentication algorithms.

M.O.S.T. Toolz provides full support for all of the latest-generation CardLogix cards and file types, including extended large file types. The Toolz are designed for use in Windows Vista or XP operating systems. Also included are device drivers for the Linux environments.

More details are available in the M.O.S.T. Toolz Product Information Sheet. Detailed specifications (including low level commands) of each card supplied are available under a separate M.O.S.T. Card Non-Discolsure Agreement.
