Contact Smart Cards
To use these type of cards, it is necessary to have physical contact between card and reader. Available data on the card will be sent to the reader by form of serial numbers and new information will be transformed to the card by the same port after processing. For instance, phone cards will be placed in this range. The main problem of these cards is the damage of metal contacts (contact places) due to some external factors such as impact and physical conditions of the environment.
