This standard specifies the physical characteristics of identification cards including card material, construction, characteristics and nominal dimensions for three sizes of cards ID -1, ID -2 and ID The 781-2 properties of the contact IC card are referenced against earlier card standards and we will look at each of them in turn.
These commands cover the entire life cycle of the card and therefore some commands may be used before the card has been issued to the cardholder or after the card has expired. Unfortunately the French chip position overlaps the ISO magnetic stripe definition.
The IC module in a Smart Card is like any other electronic component and is not normally expected to be hit with a hammer at regular intervals. The word occasional is defined to mean not more than four hours each time and not over times during the life of the card.

The 7816 Standard
This page was last edited on 19 Aprilat Let us know what you have to say: Security operation commands are standardized by this criterion. These standards are well established so are the more important characteristics of a Smart Card which form the basis of the existing and emerging standards.
It has to be said that this part of the standard could be improved and there is currently some work taking place in ISO on this very subject. Interoperability is of course the name of the game and is the primary purpose of standards. Even the embossing process itself is mechanically stressful and must raise lso doubts over the appropriate migration strategy. ISO Identification cards – Physical characteristics The parity bit is defined to achieve even parity which means that the number of 1’s in the 8 data bits and the parity bit together results in an even number.
Newer chip fabrication technologies are moving sub micron, 0. The choice and conditions of use of cryptographic mechanisms may affect card exportability.
It also defines the purpose, location and electrical characteristics of the metallic contacts of the card. It should be noted that the thickness dimension does not include any allowance for embossing. Although the PC operates in full duplex mode. Created inupdated inupdated in Cards with contacts — USB electrical interface and operating procedures”. Registration of application providers”. This is an additional characteristic to the magnetic field sensor which operates off the magnetic stripe and is used to open a mechanical gate on devices such as ATMs where some vandal proofing techniques are required.
Identification of persons using biometric methods is iwo the scope of this standard. ISO Design and use of identification cards having integrated circuits with contacts Created inupdated in Cards with contacts — Electrical interface and transmission protocols”.
This part specifies the requirements for embossed characters on identification cards for the transfer of data by imprinters or by visual or machine reading.
ISO part 2 smart card standard
Many observers have commented that the widespread use of Smart Cards is being impeded by the lack of standards. ETSI in the development of its standards has adopted a far more rigorous specification of 20mA maximum for normal use and a 10mA maximum for use in portable equipment. These chips may operate with a supply voltage of 3volts which results in lower current consumption.
Commands and mechanisms for security operations”. The ISO standard includes specifications for the commands for card management. Organization, security and commands for interchange”.
