ISO 7816-1 PDF

ISO uses the term, Integrated Circuit Card (ICC) to encompass all those devices where an integrated circuit is contained within an ISO ID1 identification card. Identification cards — Integrated circuit(s) cards with contacts — Part 1: Physical characteristics. ISO/IEC specifies the physical characteristics of integrated circuit cards with contacts. It applies to identification cards of the ID-1 card type, which.

Well, the primary use of the IC card is for the portable storage and retrieval of data. The characteristics of the Smart Card are part of the ISO part 1 physical and 2 contact location standards. Technical Adviser to Smart Card News. ISO3.

The biggest hole in the current standards work is the lack of agreement in the security domain which one ios argue is fundamental to the application platform. Annexes are provided that give examples of operations related to digital signatures, certificates and the import and export of asymmetric keys. The synchronous mode of operation is more commonly met with the memory card ICs as used for telephone applications.

While this is certainly one way of comparing cards fabricated by different companies, whether it bears any relationship to the use of IC cards in the field seems debatable. The ISO standard defines a single line for the interchange of data between the IC and the interface device. There is a further problem with the asynchronous character transmission that makes life difficult for a PC to act as the interface device.

This is often called a COB Chip On Board and consists of a glass epoxy connector board on which the chip is bonded to the connectors.

The 7816–1 defines the situation after reset whilst allowing the frequency to be selectively changed by means of protocol type selection. There are a number of factors to be decided in the specification of the integrated circuit for the Smart Card. According to its abstract, it specifies a card application. The ROM software is provided to the semiconductor supplier who manufactures the chips.


Introduction To Smart Cards – Page 2. The recommended test requires the card to withstand bendings in each of the four possible orientations i.

Part 4 Location of magnetic read only tracks – tracks 1 and 2.

ISO/IEC – Wikipedia

It provides the facility of interoperability across all industries to provide security and transmission of card data. A particular chip may have one or more of these memory types. An annex is provided that shows how to control the loading of data secure download into the card, by means of verifying the access rights of the 78116-1 entity and protection of the transmitted data with secure messaging.

It should be noted that the thickness dimension does not include any allowance for embossing. It is largely concerned with the management of data files but it may optionally involve additional features such as cryptographic algorithms e.

According to its abstract, it specifies interindustry commands iao integrated circuit cards either with contacts lso without contacts that may be used for cryptographic operations. Your email address will not be published.

Security operation commands are standardized by this criterion. It is even proposed that the chip micromodule could be inserted in one step as part of the moulding process. According to its abstract, it specifies sio Data Elements DEs used for interindustry interchange based on integrated circuit cards ICCs both with contacts and without contacts.

A current consumption of mA is far too high for modern electronic equipment particularly when the equipment is portable and driven by a battery power supply. PVC was traditionally used in the manufacture of cards and enabled a higher printing resolution.

The ICC which contains a CPU can handle more sophisticated applications and even multi applications since the CPU is also capable of processing the data and taking decisions upon the various actions that may be invoked. The principal parameters of ISO are the dimensions of the ID -1 card which are defined to be, 7816–1 order to avoid further delay in publishing the standard, two options were allowed to include both the front and back of the card.


The resistance of the card lso static electricity is defined by a test set up as 7816–1 in figure 8. The manufacture of a Smart Card involves a large number of processes of which the embedding of the chip into the plastic card is key in achieving an overall quality product.

ISO/IEC 7816

ISO Identification cards – recording techniques These standards are more stringent than that described by the ISO standards. As the title implies, this part of the standard specifies the location of embossed characters on an ID -1 card for which two areas are assigned.

This is usually accomplished by some form of access code which may be quite large 64 bits izo more. It defines the standards for Application Identifiers which has two parts:. This part of the card development process is clearly specific to the particular application.

The subject of multi-applications and particularly the implementation of security segregation is another subject for more detailed discussion in subsequent parts. The now agreed ISO standards for magnetic stripes resulted in the French chip position and the magnetic iwo being coincident. The ISO standard is designed to address electrical signals and reset signals for synchronous cards.

The fabrication of a contactless card is somewhat different since it always involves a laminated card as shown in figure 5.
