  1. Smart Card Digital Security Initiative Charles Cagliostro Executive Director of Digital Security Initiative ccagliostro@smarcardalliance.org

  2. Mission of Digital Security Initiative • To increase the size of the smart card market in North America by establishing a broad-based understanding that smart cards are synonymous with security in the networked world and by seeking to resolve any technical or business issues that may exist, or arise, that could make it difficult for a developer or user organization to employ smart cards in their security solutions. CACR Information Workshop

  3. Goals • Promote the critical role of smart card technology in securing B2B e-business, enterprise systems, bank card transactions, and consumer Internet applications; • Help ensure the smooth implementation of smart card technology for security purposes in internet, credit/debit card, mobile commerce, and network security applications; and, • Strongly advocate the inclusion of smart card reader/writers as original equipment on all types of network capable devices including PC’s, Internet appliances and mobile phones, to ensure that smart card-based security can be broadly implemented. CACR Information Workshop

  4. Operational Units • Expert Technical Committee • address technical issues • Marketing and Communications Committee • undertake promotional and educational programs • Reader Task Force • industry advocacy to make reader/writers standard equipment on new PCs, workstations, and network appliances. • Full Time Executive Director • Charles Cagliostro – Former SCIA Exec. Dir. CACR Information Workshop

  5. Expert Technical Committee The committee’s goal: address any and all issues which could stand in the way of solution providers or user organization adopting smart cards for the purpose of providing security. The Tasks of the committee are: • establish a mechanism for developing an on-going list of technical “road block” issues. • develop methodology for prioritizing and classifying “road block issues” • develop functional description of each “road block” issue and a plan to address the issue. It is expected that there will be three categories of issue: • those that can be address through educational efforts including development of printed materials, public relations campaigns, speaking and other out reach. • those that can be addressed by the industry on a technical basis, such as establishment or endorsement of specifications or standards, • those that are beyond the reach of the committee, but require the attention of the smart card community as a whole • work with the Marketing & Communications Committee to generate materials for education, outreach and promotional efforts CACR Information Workshop

  6. Marketing & Communications CommitteeThe Eyes, Ears and Voice of the Initiative Activities of Committee: • Produce Educational/Outreach materials and programs flowing from the activities of the Expert Technical Committee • Develop materials to explain the business case for using smart cards in network security solutions including a templates and case studies which illustrate the cost-effectiveness of the adoption of smart card technology over time. • Provide a quick-response mechanism (under 24 hours) to respond to any security related incidents that appear in the media. CACR Information Workshop

  7. Smart Card Reader Deployment Task Force The Task Force Goal: Convince the suppliers of network hardware that there is about to be a critical mass of smart cards issued in the US. And that this event demands that they include readers in ALL their product offerings. The key elements of the SCRD Task Force: • SCRD Petition: The petition is a document expressing philosophical commitment by user organizations and card issuers to having smart cards play a major in the future of their networks. • SCRD Tour:The SCRD Tour is actually a series of trips to be made in 2001. A group of representatives from major user organizations and card issuers will visit key electronic equipment suppliers, armed with presentation materials put together by the Marketing & Communication Committee. • Smart Card Reader Logo Program: a logo that OEMs can use to identify products, which have a PC/SC compliant smart card reader. CACR Information Workshop
