The main aim of this project is providing authenticated and access control system for device using smart card technology
The purpose of this project is to provide a security based accessing system.Now a days we can provide at most security by using technologies.In this project the technology called smart card is used.And Smart cards are becoming increasingly more popular for security and personal identification applications.
The smart chip included on a smart card provides a means for secured electronic transactions and a means for identification. And using thios technology we can access and control devices
The main objective of this project is Authenticated device control system which is implemented using smart card . This project is designed around a Microcontroller which forms the Control unit of the project.
A smart card is used as an authentication for device control. According to this project the person who wants to access a device needs to carry his Smart Card with him. Whenever he wants to access the device, he needs to insert his smart card into the smart card Reader.
The hardware involved in the project is Microcontroller, Power supply, Smart Card, Smart Card Reader, Card Reader Driver and Devices to be controlled. This project finds its place in places where one wants to provide authentication over device control.
Smart cards are secure tokens that have provided security services to a wide range of applications for over thirty years. Along with other technology advances, smart card technology has changed dramatically as well.
For nearly a decade, researchers have sought to connect smart cards to the Internet. The benefits are more including providing services over the Internet and eliminating smart card specific infrastructure.
A smart card is an integrated circuit card that forms a part of a circuit or system when engaged with a smart card interface. Smart cards are becoming increasingly more popular for security and personal identification applications.
Smart cards have one or more microcontrollers embedded in them which manage access to, and storage of, sensitive data that is actually stored in memory devices on the smart card
Hence, by implementing this project we can achieve authenticated and access control system for device using smart card technology
