From the Publisher:

This timely handbook presents a state-of-the-art overview of the technology from fundamental information processing through design, manufacture and operation of smart card schemes. Aiming to enable the reader to design smart-card based systems, coverage spans architecture and operating systems, data transmission to and from the smart card, the command set, the implementation of security mechanisms and the function of smart card terminals. The author also considers the actual status of the appropriate European (CEN) and International (ISO) standards.
