Is it your job to deploy a smart card system? Are you unsure where to start?
When developing a smart card system, several factors should be considered in advance. Careful planning will help you avoid problems and optimize results in the long run. Consider, for example, the type of information that you will store and how you will protect and share that data. Additionally, you may want to avoid overrunning the system with too many features in the beginning. It could confuse users or create unnecessary difficulties for management. While the inclusion of smart cards requires careful planning and consideration, its advantages are worth the effort. Smart cards and secure elements are the industry standard for identity and device authentication, secure transactions, and the protection of data and assets. The following list of questions and recommendations is intended as a rough guideline to help you get started.
