Security, and particularly 'Smart Card' security has become a very hot topic in the 1990's. We have been constantly 'educated' that Smart Cards are secure, and this series of seminars has spent much time examining the various claims and potential flaws in those claims. This talk will take a step back from the detail of smart card security, encryption algorithms etc. and examine the basic elements of security, It will briefly examine the various strengths and vulnerabilities of different approaches and present some ideas on how combining technologies can offer great benefits in reducing threats of security breaches.
