Description

For existing and future applications in all areas the chip card wins information processing due to the storage capacity, security and De Centralization of functions is becoming increasingly important. Around the diverse possibilities of a chip card system To be able to use, on the one hand, each user must have a have the respective system adapted chip card and others On the one hand, the terminals connected to the system be provided with a chip card reader that the electrical and mechanical connection between the terminal and the chip card manufactures. To a possible abuse of Excluding in advance are different security concepts have been developed, for example the personal identification number, which belongs to the so-called PIN. The holder of a chip card only then receives Access to the system if he by entering his PIN after indicates that the one he inserted into the smart card reader Chip card actually belongs to him. This happens in the Way, that the existing on a smart card reader Ta stature entered PIN with the ge in the chip of the chip card saved and calculated PIN compared and only at Approved approval for a corresponding approval for the subsequent data exchange is granted. These PIN checking requires that the smart card reader to operate the keyboard and, if necessary, a display genfeldes contains a power supply.

However, entering the PIN creates a new problem insofar as the terminals are usually located in publicly accessible rooms and locations, which is why it cannot be completely ruled out that the  respective user observed when keying in his PIN becomes. Required for the security of the system However, the PIN can be kept secret for example are lost even if the cardholder is in motion casually noted his PIN on the chip card and the Chip card is subsequently lost.

In order to prevent possible abuse, there are already a number additional security barriers have been proposed. These Safety barriers provide, for example, that for loading user identification of biometric characteristics of the beneficiary, like fingerprint or human language be pulled (see COM, Siemens Magazin für Computer & Com munications, July / August 1986, pages 19, 20). Systems and Facilities using fingerprints or other bio metric characteristics an identification of the user he possible, are also from EP 00 81 276 A2 and computers Design, August 1, 1986, pages 44 and 46. It is finally over EP 01 97 535 known, such devices on the chip to provide card.

The present invention therefore has the object reason to design a control unit for chip cards that a simple, unmanipulatable identification of the legitimate chip card user is guaranteed.

This object is achieved according to the Features of claim 1 trained portable operator unity solved. Advantageous further developments are in the Subclaims specified.

The following is an embodiment of the invention explained in more detail with reference to the drawing.

The figure shows a control unit approximately DIN A6 in size, the rectangular housing 1 of which has a keyboard 2 on the top for entering a personal identification number, the so-called PIN, and a display field 3 . On at least one long side of the housing, a grip element 4 is provided in the form of a grip strip with rounded outer edges, so that the control unit can be gripped easily with one hand. The operating unit also has an insertion slot for a reading device that receives a chip card 5 . This insertion slot is preferably located on one of the free side surfaces, for example on the upper side surface. The special feature of the control unit is that the grip area has a shape adapted to the anatomy of the human hand, in such a way that grip recesses 6 are provided for the individual fingers. These recessed grips 6 are arranged in accordance with the usual grip position so that the thumb rests on the top, while all other fingers rest on the underside of the housing 1 . In the recessed grips 6 one or, if necessary, several different sensors 7 are provided, which are used to record biometric data, for example the geometry of the hand, the fingerprint, the skin temperature or the skin resistance. The individual sensors 7 are embedded in such a way that their sensor surfaces lie approximately in the plane of the recessed grip surface. The biometric data detected by the sensors are forwarded to the chip card 5 and checked for identity with data stored there. Compared to the personal identity number, which can be lost, spied on or tried out, biometric data have the advantage that, as non-manipulable data, they give a clear statement as to whether the user of the chip card is actually the rightful owner.

Claims (3)

1. Portable control unit for chip cards with a reading device, a display panel and a keyboard, for use in a data exchange system in which the access authorization to the system both by comparing a secret number entered by means of the keyboard with the secret number stored or calculated in the chip card is also checked by a comparison of person-specific, biometric features, such that the control unit has a handle area adapted to the anatomy of the human hand, in which the individual bio-metric features are assigned sensors ( 7 ) before, the scanning signals with associated memory data of the chip card ( 5 ) are compared.
2. Control unit according to claim 1, characterized in that the grip area has a plurality of recesses ( 6 ) assigned to the individual fingers of the hand.
3. Control unit according to claim 2, characterized in that the sensors ( 7 ) are embedded in the recessed grips ( 6 ) in such a way that their sensor surfaces lie in the plane of the recessed grips.
