The following is a list of interesting Smart Card Websites based on the List from the Handbuch der Chipkarten and the Smart Card Handbook. If you find an other interesting site send me an e-mail and I will integrate the link if there is enough technical content on this page.

A separate list with links about Java Card programming and software development in the area of smart card could be found at the Java Card section of this homepage.

The Symbol "" stands for a site with very interesting content and the Symbol "" stands for a new entry in this list.

Last complete review of the list was at 23. August 2008 and last change of the list is mentioned at the last line of this page.
