Our smart card customers include credit card associations, banks, health care providers, and technology companies. We work internationally with these customers to implement and enhance the productivity, effectiveness and profitability of their smart card programs.

Card Boss

Card Boss lets you control smart cards from your web server. It works with any browser, smart card, or card reader. Even if the card is issued, Card Boss can control the card by sending APDU commands that the card already supports.

Cards are controlled using simple server-side scripts that are securely transmitted via SSL to the Card Boss browser plug-in. This plug-in controls the smart card and optionally sends information back to the server.
