Abstract

This project handled the design, implementation, and performance evaluation of a secure smart card transaction system. By researching current smart card technology, we built a working debit-card emulator [and] used it to compare the performance of two encryption algorithms. We built a functioning simulation, which was used to assess the speed and hardware resources needed for each algorithm, and the positive/negatives of each, in a currency transaction system.
