How is the Smart Cards Work?

Written by IT News on 9:36 AM

Smart cards are electronic devices with a striking similarity with credit cards, albeit with a wider range of applications and higher levels of security. Typical credit cards the basis of all plastics. Credit card information is stored on magnetic tape similar to that of magnetic tape that use in audio cassettes, which makes it a read / write relatively simple operations.

Shortcoming of the typical credit card is that most of the information must be stored in mainframe computer, Internet networks, where it is verified and processed.
Smart cards, however, be replaced by magnetic storage unit for the credit card with embedded microprocessor for storing information. Since credit cards are shown first in the United States and became popular in Europe lately, rich-based networks should be built to create a secure environment for the use of credit cards. Although, as the never-developed infrastructure in Europe.

So, to compensate for this, smart cards are intended. A smart card does not ask about computer security, as all necessary security is built in microprocessor. When a computer communicate with the microprocessor card asked for access to data from memory cards from banks.

A typical smart card memory has three separate banks, two of which are discs (read only memory) and one is RAM (random access memory) - 8 kilobytes of RAM, 346 kilobytes of ROM and additional programmable ROM with 256 kilobytes of memory , Controlled by the 16 - bit microprocessor.

Except for routine use in the banking sector, smart cards can also be used for computer security systems, wireless communications, loyalty systems, satellite TV access, or even the government identification. In Germany, for example, every citizen has a smart card used for health insurance. In the United States on the other hand, still uses the classic credit card for banking operations, but smart cards are slowly starting to gather speed as i.

Some of smart cards can be used by personal computer applications, to provide secure Internet transactions, or through mobile phones and vending machines.

Why svchost.exe running in windows background process?

Written by IT News on 10:20 AM

If you are using windows and a bit has knowledge I believe you probably know about windows services. Most of services are running background, means invisible unless you have the special software to see these services.

You are no doubt reading this article because you are wondering why on Earth has about a dozen processes go by the name of Svchost.exe. You can not kill them, and you do not mind starting them… So what are they?

According to Microsoft "Svchost.exe” is a generic name for the host process for services that run from dynamic link libraries. Can we have it in English, please?
Before some time, Microsoft began moving all of the functionality of domestic services in Windows. Dll files instead. Executive file. From a programming perspective it makes more sense for reuse… but the problem is that it can not be started. Dll files directly from Windows, it must be loaded by running up an executable (. Enforcement). Thus the process of Svchost.exe was born.

Why have so many svchost.exes run?
If you've ever taken a look at in the section Services in the Control Panel, you may notice that there are many services required by Windows. If each share service within one instance of Svchost.exe, failure in one can bring all down to Windows… so that they are separated century.

These services are organized into logical groups, and after, a body of Svchost.exe is created for each group. For example, one instance of Svchost.exe is a 3 services related to the firewall. Another case of Svchost.exe can run all services related to user interface, and so forth.

So what can I do about it?
You can orderly unneeded certain services from blocking or stopping the service that is not absolutely necessary to perform. Also, if you are noticing a very heavy CPU usage one of Svchost.exe example, you can restart the services running in this instance.
The biggest problem is identifying what services, which move in a particular case of Svchost.exe… we will cover that below.

If you are curious what we're talking about, just open the Task Manager and check the "Show processes of all users" box:

Checking From the Command Line (Vista or XP)

If you want to see what services are being hosted by a particular svchost.exe instance, you can use the tasklist command from the command prompt in order to see the list of services.



tasklist /SVC


The problem with using the command line method is that you don't necessarily know what these cryptic names refer to.

Checking in Task Manager in Vista

You can right-click on a particular svchost.exe process, and then choose the "Go to Service" option.

How to convert a FAT partition to NTFS

Written by IT News on 9:13 AM

I write this article based on my friend question about changing the Fat format to NTFS. For windows XP it is recommended to use NTFS partition, its faster then FAT.

In NTFS share theoretically can be of almost any size. The limit certainly exists, but not in point, since it would be more than enough for the next hundreds of years of development of information technology at any growth rates. What about practice? Much the same way. The maximum amount of NTFS share at the moment is limited only by the size of hard disks. NT4-will probably have some problems when trying to mount a drive, if any part of its steps back more than 8 GBytes of physical disk, but the beginning of this problem relates only to load share.

Okay, here is how to convert a FAT partition to NTFS, perform the following steps:

• Click Start, click Programs, and then click Command Prompt.
• In Windows XP, click Start, then click Run, type cmd (cmd is use to call the command prompt) and then click OK.
• At the command prompt, type CONVERT [driveletter]: /FS:NTFS.
• Convert.exe will attempt to convert the partition to NTFS.

Although the possibility of corruption or loss of data during the conversion from FAT to NTFS is minimal, it is best to perform a complete duplication of data on disk, it must be converted before they convert the performance of command. It is also advisable to check the integrity of the reserve before you go and run RDISK and updating the Emergency Repair Disk (ERD).

OLPC announces next-gen XO-2 $75 laptop

Written by IT News on 4:03 AM

In profit One Laptop per Child project showed the first pictures of its next generation of touch-screen laptop that goes by the name XO-2. According to Nicholas Negroponte, chairman of the OLPC, on the laptop is in the process of development and aims to cost $ 75.

Negroponte showed off images of XO-2 of OLPC event at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. He said the first XO-2 is slated to be built by 2010.
In the laptop is almost half the size of the current XO notebook and consists of two touch screen displays. In the notebook does not include a keyboard, but instead will include software-based touch-sensitive keyboard.


Negroponte explained that the XO-2 is intended to be shaped like a book and will be the first to be promoted as an e-book for developing countries.
"The XO-2 will be a little Trojan horse," he explained. He said that the XO-2 will be forced as the first e-book reader with the possibility of holding more than 500 e-books. "Currently, developing countries like China and Brazil have cost $ 19 for student per year for books," said Negroponte. Investment in XO-2 and $ 75 should be easy solution for these countries, he added. But Negroponte indicated in XO-2 is much more than one material and is fully functional laptop.


Details of how they were insufficient OLPC were expected to reach $ 75 of XO-2 price point. Negroponte, however, say significant savings will be seen in screen technology. This is because the screens are used for XO-2 will benefit from the expected high demand and low prices of portable DVD displays produced before and after 2010.
Currently the cost of making one XO notebook is $ 188, according to OLPC.


"We are working aggressively to lower costs, energy and the amount of XO laptop so that it is more accessible and usable by the poorest children," said Negroponte.
Also high in hype and little substantive information about OLPC with light version of Microsoft Windows operating system. Negroponte would only confirm that it is testing a version of Windows running on XO laptop. He said, double-primary XO laptop, which will run Windows and Linux is in the works.


OLPC also pledged to begin again his popular Day One, take a (G1G1) laptop program. The program is expected to be available in August or September for U.S. citizens and for firs time in Europe. Despite the delivery hassles, Negroponte said, G1G1 program is a huge success.

Open source on the wire

Written by IT News on 3:55 AM

Once upon a time, using open source servers and applications business was frowned on in many circles. Today, you'd be hard pressed to find any significant infrastructure that does not leverage open-source code in some form or another, whether for a few databases MySQL, Apache Web server, or the pilot of Perl, PHP, Ruby, Python or requests to participate things together.

But there is one place in the enterprise, modern infrastructure, where open source solutions have yet to make significant dentist, and this is very network that connects all these pieces.


Of course servers and network equipment, such as routers and firewalls are fundamentally different animals. Servers are large, disk-laden, high-powered computers with Ethernet interface, running a full-penoplastmasa operating systems and applications, ranging from light to heavy web servers databases. Routers and firewalls are slim small appliances which do not have the drive, run high optimized and controlled operating systems, and in case of routers, do not need much administration after initial configuration. In short, servers are from Mars, routers are from Venus.


But if we take a closer look at the functions of routing and firewalling, guess what? We believe that not only modern operating systems offer these functions they perform them as well as, or better than its dedicated cousins - and using open source for much cheaper.

The general rule of thumb when shopping for routers is to determine the requirements, then call or Cisco and Juniper Inquiry - end of story. But companies such as Vyatta and several open source projects are challenging that notion, offering a full, open source routing platforms, which are built on Linux or FreeBSD, and moving on standard x86 hardware. The server becomes a router.

Via releases laptop design as open source

Written by IT News on 2:33 AM

Via Technologies released a hardware design for a cheap laptop with WiMax support under a single license with open source on Tuesday, a move designed to make easy customization and shorten design cycles for the system entities.

The only requirements are that the use of the design is due to Via, and the changes made to the design may be distributed under the same license, or one that has similar terms.
'We hope we'll get some interesting views and look forward to seeing what the community thinks about this idea, "said Richard Brown, vice president of marketing Via.
In OpenBook is based on 1.6GHz of Via C7-M processor and VX800 chip set. The model includes 8.9-inch screen with a resolution of 1024 by 600 pixels and calls for a hard disk with a capacity of 80GB or more. The main wireless module included in the design supports Wi-Fi and Bluetooth.

Other features of 1 kg (2.2 pounds) OpenBook includes a full keyboard, to 2GB of DDR (double data rate) memory, 2 - megapixel camera, memory-card reader as four cell battery that provides up to three hours of life. In the laptop is designed to run Windows Vista, Windows XP or Linux, including G / OS, SUSE Linux, and Ubuntu.
In OpenBook design is similar in appearance to Everex of CloudBook Max declared CTIA Wireless trade show in April, but the two are different designs, Brown said, pointing to fine design changes made to satisfy Sprint, the operator that assigned to Max CloudBook.


Depending on the exact configuration, OpenBook systems will likely cost between $ 500 to $ 800, Brown said, adding that the first products will likely hit the market in the third quarter.


Via is not the first company to run a hardware design as open source. In March, Openmoko, a company set up by Taiwanese hardware manufacturer First International Computer (FIC), released an open source smartphone design, neo 1973. In headset that runs Linux, supports GSM and GPRS networks and includes Bluetooth and AGPS.
Like Via OpenBook, neo 1973 hardware design is placed under the Creative Commons ShareAlike license.

Pac-Man Movie in the Making

Written by IT News on 5:23 PM

Crystal Sky Pictures is not your typical legendary Hollywood production house that aims to get big stars, throw in some computer graphics received, and then execute an aggressive marketing campaign to ensure the success of a film. No, they know that society is in search of heroes, icons and examples that can be followed, so they chose to make a film that is based on the biggest hero of the gaming world has ever seen: a small yellow, mouthed blob called the PAC - Man.

Crystal Sky Pictures is announcing that it has received about 200 million to finance its productions, from Grosvenor Park. This is by Crystal Sky making five movies with the money received - one of the projects, just happens to feature PAC-Man.

Other projects are related to pretty much games. Film adaptation of the classic Castlevania is the most advanced projects, with Paul Anderson of Resident Evil fame for making writing, while Sylvain White is set to direct the film. 2 Hard Boiled movie is also in advanced pre-production, although details are not known, as well as other video game franchises look to the intellectual property of other productions.

Of course, PAC-Man is not much of the backstory, if you think about it, and its acting opportunities are certainly not exceptional. He is also dubious distinction of extremely old and maybe even a little inappropriate for some people who play videogames online. But, if done right, and PAC-Man movie may be included in the tour of the former nostalgia fuel, crowds of gamers.

There is also word from Halcyon company that they've snapped the rights to use novels and short stories of Philip K. Dick as inspiration for movies and for two videogames. I hope they make a great, classic adventure games of Blade Runner. And the game should have electric sheep mini-games somewhere in it.
