What is inside of your credit card ?

November 21st, 2009

 Credit card,Debit card, ATM Card..etc., whatever the type of card all these cards became part of our body.All these cards are almost physically same.

All the content written on the credit card are visible except the data inside the magnetic strip placed at the top of the reverse side of the card.

Do you know whats inside this magnetic strip?

This magnetic strip containes three tracks for storing data.

1. first track contains information about primary account number, user name, country code, card expairy date and 79 characters of discretionary data,all mixed in with separators and other characters, all this data is magnetically encoded.

2. Second track also contains the same information of the first track with 40 characters of discretionary data and separators

3. Third track is of both read and write. No standard format is defined ,data on this track may vary with the bank,it may have the data like PIN,Currency type..etc,

What actually happens when you swip your card at ATM or Store?

When your card is swiped through an electronic card reader at ATM or the checkout counter in a store , the reader will usually use its built-in modem to dial the number of a company that handles credit authentication requests.This company checks the information from the electronic card reader for a valid card number and expiration date, the card’s spending and usage limits and the store identification. After all the data checks out, the purchase/transaction is approved.

If the magnetic strip on the back of your card becomes scratched, dirty or demagnetized, the card may not work properly and you will have to get a new one.

Connect Two computers with out any additional hardware(router,switch,.etc).It just needs a CAT5 Cross-Over cable.CAT5 Cross-over cable explained below.

CAT5 Cross-over cable:
Its nothing but RJ45 connector cable normally used to built LAN connections.In cross cable the internal connections are crossed i.e in one end of the cable RJ-45 crimped with the pattren given in the below table under Connctor1,and other end RL-45 crimped with the pattren given under Connector2 coloumn.

TO make CAT5 cross over cable you need
1.CAT5 Cable of required cable,
2.RJ-45 Clips 2 nos,
3.Crimping tool(to crimp RJ-45 Clips on both ends of the CAT5 cable)
with this you can make your cross over cable at your place.

you can also purchase Cross-over cable at your nearest store .

More simplest way is purchase one RJ-45 Cross-over adopter(shown in the figure) and use this adopter at one end to your existing lan cable(CAT5 Stright cable) which makes Cross-over connection.

Connecting TWO PCs :

 If both the PCs have LAN Card / Eathernet Card then simply connect your Cross-over cable directly with both the ends.

If LAN Card / Eathernet Card not available use “USB to RJ-45 Convertors” to connect CAT5 Cross-over cable.

Before physically connecting two PCs ensure both the PCs are in the same Workgroup. To keep both PCs under same Workgroup, in

–WINDOWS XP : Right click on  “My computer” -> click on “properties” ->click on ” computer name” tab ->click “change” button ->type unique name in “workgroup” box.

–WINDOWS Vista : Open “Control panel” -> type “workgroup” in search box(right top) -> select “change workgroup name” ->click “change” button ->type unique name in “workgroup” box
