A Smart Card is a small portable credit-card shaped pocket-sized card with embedded integrated circuits or IC chips which can process data. The use of Smart Cards can improve user security by combining something a user has (the smart card) with something only the user should know (a PIN). This provides two factor securities that are more secure than passwords alone.

Portable smart card reader
Go mobile with IOGEAR's portable smart card reader. The smart card reader is the perfect communications medium between a smart card and a host. Keep the GSR203 portable smartcard reader in your backpack, briefcase, or even pocket. The slim design with tuck-away and clip USB cable makes transportation effortless.

Designed for security and accuracy
The traditional credit card uses a magnetic-stripe which stores a very small amount of information and has no processing capability of its own. Smart cards are the next generation of secure and user friendly identification, authentication & data storage solution. The IOGEAR USB smart card access reader uses a contact system where the card must be swiped through the card reader; this type of reader is less prone to misalignment and eliminates the possibility of being misread.

Smart card reader usage
Government, healthcare, banking, and entertainment industries require secure logins/authentication to access information, sensitive data, or private areas. Smart Cards are the next step in this convenience and security.
