CUNA Network Services has become the first technology partner to offer the SchlumbergerSema ‘e-gate’ smart card to member credit unions. The alliance will target smart cards to 10,000 credit unions nationwide. The key component of the ‘e-gate’ smart card is a specially designed chip that incorporates the standard smart card ISO and USB interface. The ‘e-gate’ smart card plugs directly into the standard USB port on a PC, eliminating the need for a separate card reader, power supply and driver software. Used with an e-wallet, the ‘e-gate’ card enables credit unions to offer members a secure, convenient solution for conducting commerce online through a credit union portal.
