Hello,

I just bought a Dell Latitude D600 Laptop. According to it's specs (located here) It has " One Smart Card reader "

I'm wondering what this does, and what can be done with it. What is a smartcard exalty, and how would you obtain one?

Thanks,

Smart Cards can basically be used for security and authentication purposes. I can also be used for storage, but security is the primary application at the moment.

Actually they're trying to get people to download coupons onto their credit cards and other secure uses for the smart chip. Like validating credit cards with it instead of the 3 number technique.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
