Vincent Guyot gave in his talk an overview what is possible with smartards. Smardcards are in general small computers which have the following parts:

  • ROM
  • CPU
  • RAM
  • CPU
  • crypto-CPU

They are a all-in-one computer which can be accessed on a client server base. The Developer can add their own features and functions to it. The interesting thing is, that smartcards are commonly trusted objects. While a harddisk, or a USB drive is general suspicious to the guards at for example the airport, no one really cares aboput a smartcard inside a mobile. There are even mobiles which can handle two smardcards, so it is an easy place to hide them.
