Proton transactions history

April 7, 2007

Did you know that the last 3 transactions you made with a Proton card (the Belgian electronic purse) are stored in the chip? I simply used the card reader/challenge solver given by my bank to have access to the online banking system. Usually, you press on the “M1” button. If you press on the “Info” button, you’ll get the last 3 transactions you made with Proton, the reader EPCI number, battery level and embedded software version.

Example of a Proton transactions history (now you know everything about my finances ;-)

Although I know this information is not really important (you only know how much and when you spend money), it could be useful for a jealous wife/husband πŸ˜‰ or simply to survey how often people use Proton. Are there anything else stored in that chip? (I did a short search on the internet but I didn’t find anything relevant)

  1. According to the date, you are not buying many things with proton πŸ˜‰

    In which bank are you ? Do they offer a nice Linux-compliant Home Banking ?

  2. I even forgot that 15 euros were left on my card! I am at CBC and their on-line banking system is working under Linux. You just need the (still proprietary) Java Runtime Engine.
