Cndnsd Vrsn: 4 PM Monday October 11 ACS Room 123 - Cool Smartcard
The October meeting of the Front Range UNIX Users Group will be held at
4:00 P.M. on Monday October 11. Peter Honeyman will talk about smartcard
research and development at the University of Michigan's Center for
For the past year, The University of Michigan's Center for Information
Technology Integration has been engaged in smartcard-related research and
development, jointly with Schlumberger's Austin Product Center. CITI's
broad goals in smartcard R&D fall into two broad categories:
- innovative computer security applications, and
- new methods of interacting with smartcards.
To realize these goals, CITI has developed a number of exciting
applications of smartcards:
- Kerberos client integration
- UNIX file system extensions
- Secure operating systems
- Internet access to smartcards
- Smartcard-based web server
- Palm Pilot integration and application development
In this talk, I will describe the results of these projects and our plans
for future work.
