This article presents information on smart card technology. Smart cards can protect employees, assets, data and processes from intruders intent on theft, damage and destruction. The data capacity of smart cards means they can hold multiple biometric templates, including fingerprints and iris scans. Smart cards are more convenient more durable and, because they can't be duplicated, more secure. Smart cards used for identification and access can also be used to log onto a PC or workstation to perform tasks, access data or manipulate key building systems or manufacturing processes.
