Making Sense of Smart Card Security Certifications
Reid, Jason F. & Looi, Mark H. (2000) Making Sense of Smart Card Security Certifications. In Domingo-Ferrer, Joseph, Chan, David, & Watson, Anthony (Eds.) Fourth Working Conference on Smart Card Research and Advanced Applications (CARDIS 2000), September 20-22, 2000, Bristol, United Kingdom.
Manufacturers and producers of smart card systems are all beginning to climb on the certification bandwagon. In this paper, we analyse the current state of smart card certifications and present arguments as to why smart card certifications may not be all they seem. We discuss certifications issued under the ITSEC and Common Criteria and analyse shortcomings and inconsistencies that appear to exist in the certifications. Specific examples are presented to justify our arguments.
