ACS is Asia Pacific’s #1 supplier of PC-linked Smart Card Readers. One of a few companies at the forefront of the smart card revolution, ACS develops smart card and reader technologies providing security, convenience and efficiency to daily life.
Did you know that the ACR3801 was designed to not slide across tabletops? And being certified/compliant with major standards (FIPS 201, TAA, PC/SC, CCID, MS WHQL, CE, FCC, ROHS and ISO7816), we know it won’t budge from the demands of e-government applications either. In our product presentation, we propose a way for you to integrate smart card technology into government services.
Advanced Card Systems Ltd. (ACS) has launched the ACR31 EasySwipe application, which displays information from bank cards swiped through the ACR31 Magnetic Stripe Card Reader. Supporting iOS 3.1 or higher , this application can show a banking card’s number, expiry date, service code and discretional data.
Advanced Card Systems Ltd. (ACS) has recently put updemo.acs.com.hk, which shows some demo applications that use ACS devices. The first application featured on this page is the e-Purse and Loyalty Demo, which shows users how to create cashier and customer cards, shop for products, top up e-Purse cards, and convert loyalty points to e-Purse value. This is for users who want to come up with point of sale–related applications and loyalty programs.
We built the Smart Biz Card, a free application that enables users to create, exchange and store business cards in their Android tablets. Used with an ACR122 NFC Reader and contactless smart card, you can use this app to network more efficiently:
In this demo, we show how the APG8202 increases security when using credit cards for online purchases via its Challenge-Respond Mode. Since a user will need both an OTP generator and a PIN code to make an online purchase, fraudulent purchases become more difficult.
APG8202 Demo 1 — The APG8202 doesn’t just generate security codes. It is also used to authenticate users. Here we show how users can verify their identity by using the APG8202 with a smart card (something the user has) and a PIN code (something that the user knows).
Online banking and shopping transactions often require PIN codes to authenticate users. But what if malicious parties manage to guess user PIN codes, or steal them mid-transaction? ACS helps address this security risk with the APG8202. Completely standalone, the APG8202 performs authentication not via PC, but in itself, minimizing exposure of the PIN code online.
We will also be posting a series of demos that show the additional layers of security that the APG8202 enables for banking and payment transactions, i.e. authenticating users through smart cards and PIN codes; enabling digital signatures; and generating secure one-time codes.
Healthcare records require confidentiality. But what if you need to set different access rights for doctors and patients? What if you use an unsecure public network, e.g. the Internet, to send and receive information?
Smart card technology protects sensitive information through encryption, meaning that data is scrambled so that they become unreadable to an unauthorized party. In the demo below, the ACR38 smart card reader and ACOS3 smart card show how doctors and patients can access confidential data online without compromising security:
How do you manage network access using smart card readers? ACS’s ACR100 SimFlash, a SIM-sized smart card reader with flash memory, makes this possible. It works with a SIM card and a PC. When a SIM card is inserted into the ACR100’s SIM card slot, the ACR100 reads pertinent data and directs the user to an online platform where he/she can access various services.
For maximum security, users are also asked to provide unique PIN codes.And when the user unplugs the ACR100, no trace of his/her transaction is left in the PC.
