EMV model of interaction with smart cards

APDU Protocol The APDU protocol is defined in the ISO 7816-4 standard. (Later in this book we will refer to the sections of the standard as follows: ISO 7816-X – specification X of the ISO 7816 standard.) This is an application-level protocol for data exchange between a smart card and a host application. According to the ISO 7816-4 specification, APDU messages come in two formats: the first format is used by the host application on the CAD side to transmit commands to the card, the second format is used by the card to send response messages...
