The smart card group at ICL, a Fujitsu Ltd. subsidiary, has introduced tools for Web developers that let its SmartCity smart cards be used on the Internet.

The Internet Tool Set, or ITS, allows for electronic cash, ticketing, or other transactions secured by cryptography and authentication techniques.

Phil Eames, director of ICL's smart card business, said the on-line capabilities should improve consumer acceptance and card-issuing organizations "can significantly reduce their infrastructure costs."

The tool set comes in the form of a CD-ROM and includes a sample Web site and personal computer application.
