For example, the present invention may employ various integrated circuit I. Further, it should be noted that the present invention may employ any number of conventional techniques for data transmission, signaling, data processing, network control, and the like.
It should be appreciated that the particular implementations shown and described herein are illustrative of the invention and its best mode and are not intended to otherwise limit the scope of the present invention in any way.
Indeed, for the sake of brevity, conventional data networking, application development and other functional aspects of the systems and components of the individual operating components of the systems may not be described in detail herein.
It should be noted that many alternative or additional functional relationships or physical connections may be present in a practical electronic transaction system.
To simplify the description of the exemplary embodiments, the invention is frequently described as pertaining to a system of electronic commerce running over the Internet.
It will be appreciated, however, that many applications of the present invention could be formulated. For example, the system could be used to authenticate users of a computer system, or to activate a passcode system, or any other purpose.

Similarly, various embodiments include a connection separate from network connecting the wallet server and security server Exemplary data connections suitable for use with connections and include telephone connections, ISDN connections, dedicated T1 or other data connections, wireless connections and the like.
It will be appreciated that connection and connection may be identical connections, or each may be an entirely different form of connection in various embodiments of the invention. Various embodiments, such as the one shown in FIG. Application server can be used to balance the workload.
For example, application server may perform some of the functionality performed by the Wallet serversuch as database access. Because the application server is not connected to the data networksecurity may be enhanced by having database access be performed by the application server instead of the wallet server While various exemplary embodiments have been illustrated in FIGS.
For example, an embodiment may include connection but not connection or vice versa. Functionality attributed to a single component may be distributed among one or more individual computers in order to fulfill the described functionality. For example, the wallet servermay in fact be a collection of Web servers, application servers, database servers and other types of servers.
To conduct a transaction, customer suitably establishes a connection through network with a merchant When a purchase is to be consummated, customer accesses wallet server The customer is then redirected to security server to verify that a smartcard is in the customer's possession.
The smartcard may include a digital certificate that uniquely identifies the card such that digital credentials relating to the transaction may be created, as described below. In various embodiments, portions of the digital credentials are returned to customer and a portion is provided to wallet server via secure connection Customer may then use the digital credentials to authenticate to a wallet serverwhich may complete the electronic transaction as a proxy for customer Wallet server may include functionality for completing purchase forms affiliated with merchant computerfor example.
When merchant receives a secure purchase instrument identifier from customer or from wallet servercard authorization may take place over connection as with any ordinary charge card authorization. Because the smartcard contains identifying information that is unique to the particular card and which can be made known to the network through electronic means, a purchase transaction conducted with the smartcard is more secure than a transaction conducted with an ordinary charge or credit card.
