Flexibility and card management is provided by the GlobalPlatform [12] functionality which helps to support secure application and data loading, modification and quite sophisticated security domains and channels for isolating multiple applications. Java Card still suffers from the fact that the functionality has to be developed and loaded on the card itself (rather than a remote server), which in some applications creates testing and card management issues.

For example the modern passport includes a smart chip which can be accessed as part of normal travel processes and many countries have national ID cards, some of which are based on smart card chips, however the introduction of new cards can be emotive.

By contrast T=1 is a block protocol favored by financial institutions. One could fall into the trap of assuming that all chip cards are more secure than magnetic stripe cards and that the presence of the gold contacts implies that this is a smart card. These assumptions are incorrect and dangerous. The simplest chip card could contain a single fixed value. The application protocol would simply be to read this fixed value for comparison. It would be trivial for an attacker to read the value from a valid card and produce a copy and so this type of card fails our third smart card definition in the same way as the magnetic stripe card.
