Best Software

Smart Card Web Mashups is the first implementation of the Java Card 3.0 specifications through a technological solution that combines content and applications from various Web server., One of the servers is embedded in a USB device and provides personal data and services to the USB key holder, such as a contact book, notes, passwords, videos or images. The information is directly managed in a web browser via applications like YouTube or a Personal Information Manager (PIM) portal embedded in the USB key. The mashup technology allows enriching the services stored in the device with online content, or personalizing Web applications with personal data.
