Smart Card Technology (New Jersey)

BDPA New Jersey is the 12th largest chapter in the nation. One reason for their success is a consistent willingness to share the talents of their membership with the national organization. For example, one BDPA New Jersey Chapter leader, Coram Rimes, will be making a presentation at this year's National BDPA Conference in Atlanta, GA on the topic of Smart Card Technology. Coram is the National Building Security Director for Prudential. He agreed to give a sneak peek of what he will be presenting to his chapter colleagues this month.

A smart card is defined as any pocket-sized card with embedded integrated circuits which can process information. These tiny devices can receive input which is then processed and delivered as output.

During the presentation Coram will discuss the following topic points:

  1. How to determine the potential for use of smart card technology for your business needs
  2. Cryptography - what is it?
  3. Public Key Infrastructure (PKI)
  4. Key and Certificate life cycles
  5. Potential solutions to solve company related issues
  6. Implementation strategies for smart card technology

Here are the logistics for the meeting:

Date: Thursday, June 26, 2008
