Money Pad, The Future Wallet
#1

Definition

"Money in the 21st century will surely prove to be as different from the money of the current century as our money is from that of the previous century. Just as fiat money replaced specie-backed paper currencies, electronically initiated debits and credits will become the dominant payment modes, creating the potential for private money to compete
with government-issued currencies." Just as every thing is getting under the shadow of "e" today we have paper currency being replaced by electronic money or e-cash.

Hardly a day goes by without some mention in the financial press of new developments in "electronic money". In the emerging field of electronic commerce, novel buzzwords like smartcards, online banking, digital cash, and electronic checks are being used to discuss money. But how are these brand-new forms of payment secure? And most importantly, which of these emerging secure electronic money technologies will survive into the next century?

These are some of the tough questions to answer but here's a solution, which provides a form of security to these modes of currency exchange using the "Biometrics Technology". The Money Pad introduced here uses the biometrics technology for Finger Print recognition. Money Pad is a form of credit card or smartcard, which we name so.

Every time the user wants to access the Money Pad he has to make an impression of his fingers which will be scanned and matched with the one in the hard disk of data base server. If the finger print matches with the user's he will be allowed to access and use the Pad other wise the Money Pad is not accessible. Thus providing a form of security to the ever-lasting transaction currency of the future "e-cash".

Money Pad - A form of credit card or smart card similar to floppy disk, which is
introduced to provide, secure e-cash transactions.

Description:
BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION

1) Field of the Invention

The present invention relates to an electronic wallet management system which controls electronic wallet devices for monetary data transfer, an electronic wallet device itself, an electronic wallet management unit, a terminal station therefor, as well as to a storage medium containing an electronic wallet managing program. More particularly, the present invention relates to an electronic wallet management system which deals with the loss or failure of electronic wallet devices, as well as to an electronic wallet device, an electronic wallet management unit, and a terminal station designed therefor. The present invention also relates to a storage medium containing an electronic wallet managing program for realizing the system.

2) Description of the Related Art

Electronic wallet devices carry electronic money. People use them to make payment electronically, without using real money. Electronic wallet provides various advantages over cash, one of which is that payment can be made more promptly because there is no need to give or receive the change.

People may, however, lose their electronic wallet devices at times. The loss of electronic wallet devices may be handled variously, depending on their device type. For example, in the case of prepaid type devices, which can be used without user authentication, there is no way for the loser to have his/her electronic wallet reissued. This means that the loser would not be able to recover the electronic money at all, unless he/she discovers the very device that is missing. In contrast to this, such electronic wallet devices that require user authentication can be reissued at their respective issuing financial institutions when they are lost. In this case, the monetary data remaining in the lost electronic wallet will eventually be carried over to the reissued device, thus allowing the owner to use it without problems.

Reissuing of such an electronic wallet, however, consumes a long time. Specifically, those that require later settlement, like securities, may take a few months to be reissued. Another such example is banking cards, which manage monetary data not directly, but only through the customers' bank accounts. It takes a couple of weeks for the loser to get such a banking card reissued. What is worse is that the customer cannot spend his/her own money during the time he/she waits for the delivery of a reissued electronic wallet. Those problems in connection with the loss of electronic wallets are also true in another situation where the customer's electronic wallet device is broken down.
SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION

Taking the above into consideration, an object of the present invention to provide an electronic wallet management system which eliminates the inconvenience that one may encounter when his/her electronic wallet is lost or broken down.

It is another object of the present invention to provide an electronic wallet device which minimizes the inconvenience that one may encounter when it is lost or broken down.

It is still another object of the present invention to provide an electronic wallet management unit which minimizes the inconvenience that one may encounter when his/her electronic wallet device is lost or broken down.

It is yet another object of the present invention to provide a terminal station which minimizes the inconvenience that one may encounter when it is lost or broken down.

It is a further object of the present invention to provide a storage medium containing an electronic wallet management program which minimizes the inconvenience that one may encounter when his/her electronic wallet device is lost or broken down.

To accomplish the above objects, according to the present invention, there is provided an electronic wallet management system which manages an electronic wallet devices holding monetary data. This system comprises the following elements: backup condition testing means for testing predefined backup conditions to determine whether to make a backup, when the electronic wallet device communicates with any other device to transfer monetary data; backup data sending means for sending out a predetermined set of backup data collected from the electronic wallet device, when the backup condition testing means has determined to make a backup; and backup data management means for receiving the backup data from the backup data sending means and saving the received backup data into a backup database.

The proposed electronic wallet management system operates as follows. Each time an electronic wallet device is used, the backup condition testing means tests whether any of the predefined backup conditions is met. If any condition is met, the backup data sending means sends a predetermined set of backup data. By the backup data management means, this backup data is saved into a backup database. In this way, the proposed system automatically saves backup information when a relevant backup condition is met, thus making it possible to promptly reissue an alternative electronic wallet device when the customer lost his/her own device.

The present invention also provides an electronic wallet device which transfers monetary data. This electronic wallet device comprises the following elements: backup condition testing means for testing predefined backup conditions to determine whether to make a backup, when the electronic wallet device communicates with any other device to transfer monetary data; and backup data sending means for sending out a predetermined set of backup data collected from the electronic wallet device, when the backup condition testing means has determined to make a backup.

The proposed electronic wallet device operates as follows. Each time a transfer of funds occurs, the backup condition testing means tests whether any of the predefined backup conditions is met. If any condition is met, the backup data sending means sends a predetermined set of backup data. By storing such backup data, an electronic wallet management unit can promptly reissue an alternative electronic wallet device when a customer lost his/her own electronic wallet device.

Further, the present invention provides an electronic wallet management unit which manages an electronic wallet device, comprising temporary electronic wallet data producing means, responsive to an accident report received from a terminal station, for calculating elapsed time between the last backup operation for an issued electronic wallet device and the reception of the accident report, compiling temporary electronic wallet data having a limited valid period and a credit limit that is determined according to the elapsed time, and sending the temporary electronic wallet data back to the terminal station.

The proposed electronic wallet management unit operates as follows. When an accident report is received from a terminal station, the temporary electronic wallet data producing means outputs temporary electronic wallet data having a limited valid period and a credit limit that is determined according to the elapsed time since the last backup operation. A temporary electronic wallet device containing such temporary electronic wallet data can be issued to the customer for the sake of his/her convenience, with a minimum risk at the issuer side.

In addition, the present invention provides a terminal station coupled to an electronic wallet management unit. This terminal station comprises the following elements: medium storage means for storing a plurality of temporary electronic wallet devices in stock for future issuance; receiving means for receiving the accident report concerning an electronic wallet device; transmission means for forwarding the received accident report to the electronic wallet management unit; temporary electronic wallet data writing means for writing the temporary electronic wallet data to a memory of one of the temporary electronic wallet devices stored in the medium storage means, the temporary electronic wallet data being supplied from the electronic wallet management unit in response to the forwarded accident report; and temporary electronic wallet device releasing means for releasing the temporary electronic wallet device containing the temporary electronic wallet data.

The proposed terminal station operates as follows. When an accident report concerning an electronic wallet device arrives at the receiving means, the transmission means forwards it to the electronic wallet management unit. The electronic wallet management unit then supplies temporary electronic wallet data. The temporary electronic wallet data writing means writes this temporary electronic wallet data to a memory of one of the temporary electronic wallet devices stored in the medium storage means. Then the temporary electronic wallet device releasing means releases the temporary electronic wallet device containing the temporary electronic wallet data. In this way, the customer can receive a temporary electronic wallet device by entering an accident report to the station, which eliminates his/her inconvenience for the time being.

Moreover, the present invention provides a computer-readable medium storing an electronic wallet management program which manages an electronic wallet device holding monetary data. This program causes a computer to function as: backup condition testing means for testing predefined backup conditions to determine whether to make a backup, when the electronic wallet device communicates with any other device to transfer monetary data; backup data sending means for sending out a predetermined set of backup data collected from the electronic wallet device, when said backup condition testing means has determined to make a backup; and backup data management means for receiving the backup data from said backup data sending means and saving the received backup data into a backup database.

When the stored electronic wallet management program is executed on a computer, the computer will function as: backup condition testing means for testing predefined backup conditions to determine whether to make a backup, when the electronic wallet device communicates with any other device to transfer monetary data; backup data sending means for sending out a predetermined set of backup data collected from the electronic wallet device, when said backup condition testing means has determined to make a backup; and backup data management means for receiving the backup data from said backup data sending means and saving the received backup data into a backup database.

INTRODUCTION
1.1 OVERVIEW

The 21st century will not be "cashless", as many now predict. However, it does seem clear that the currency of the 21st century will be "paperless". Paper currency and checks are gradually being supplanted by smartcards, digital cash and instant transfers of funds. The large paper bureaucracy of banks is quickly becoming redundant, burdensome, even antiquated. The evolution in digital money is happening so fast that banks cannot adopt quickly enough and will eventually collapse like top-heavy giants, blown over by the winds of financial change. The wallet of the future will hold less paper cash, coins and magnetic stripe cards. It will instead hold Money Pad containing digital cash and other financial information, updated by a PDA with a satellite communication link.
As the new technologies develop new ways of making payment, one concern naturally arises. Will this technology protect each individual's right to privacy while providing the sound money needed for the economic health of communities? The answer is simple — it depends on how the new technology is used. There is nothing inherent in the technology that makes it less protective of privacy and individual rights. Advancement's like Biometrics Technology has made individual privacy even more secure.
As developments in electronic money gather pace, protection of individual rights must be kept in focus. Because the record of most governments so far in these early stages of electronic commerce has been seen by many to be confrontational and not protective of individual rights, it is likely that the preservation of these rights is one reason that private currencies are likely to emerge on the Internet and to eventually play an important role in global commerce.
In order to protect the rights and properties of each individual we thought of providing a security system, which every human being can understand and feel free to use. Human beings feel secure when they have their own security arrangements to protect their rights and as well as wealth. Biometrics Technology is used to develop an e-cash handling system, which is similar to well known credit cards and smart cards. The e-cash handling system is a device that facilitates secure currency transactions. We call it Money Pad which recognizes Finger Prints of the user and decides whether the user is an authorized person or not. Every time the user wants to access Money Pad he has to make an impression of his finger, which will be sensed and matched with the one in the hard disk. If the finger print matches with the user's he will be allowed to access and use the Pad otherwise the Money Pad is not accessible.
1.2 WHAT IS BIOMETRICS?
Biometric technology is defined as automated methods of identifying or authenticating the identity of a living person based on unique physiological or behavioral characteristics. Biometrics can provide very secure and convenient authentication for an individual since they cannot be stolen or forgotten and are very difficult to forge.
• A physiological characteristic is a relatively stable physical characteristic, such as an individual’s fingerprint, hand geometry, iris pattern, or blood vessel pattern on the back of the eye. This type of biometric measurement is usually unchanging and unalterable without significant duress to the individual.
• A behavioral characteristic is more a reflection of an individual’s psychological makeup. A signature is the most common behavioral biometric used for identification. Because most behavioral characteristics vary over time, an identification system using these must allow updates to be enrolled
CHAPTER 2
LITERATURE
2.1 PRESENT APPROACH

Presently due to the usage of computers in almost all the fields the demand for the utilization of electronic money has increased. Payments made today in nearly all of the deposit currencies in the world’s banking system are handled electronically through a series of interbank computer networks. Credit cards and smart cards are widely used to enter into these interbank computer networks in order to perform transactions. These are the popular medium widely existing as a recent medium of currency in the e-cash scenario
The mode of usage and the security provided by these currency mediums are as follows:
2.1.1 CREDIT CARD
Credit cards are payment devices that allow the consumer to make purchases within certain guaranteed limits as defined by the issuer of the card. To use a credit card in most cases it is sufficient to present the merchant with the card number and the cardholder's name and expiration date of the card. These data can be conveniently transmitted over the Internet. Furthermore, credit cards process funds by electronic means. The user has to swap the card in the card reader machine then the machine asks for authentication information like password Later the user is allowed to perform the transaction.
Disadvantages:
 Instant clearing of funds is not possible.
 User is always under the pressure of limits on purchase defined by the issuer of the card and also every transaction involves certain charges.
 Insecure transactions using fixed encryption.
 The card has to be renewed once it is expired.
2.1.2 SMARTCARDS
A smartcard resembles a credit card except that it has a microchip embedded within it, which allows the smartcard to store information and sometimes to even perform simple calculations. Common smartcard chips typically holds about 8,000 bytes (characters) of information, which enables the smartcard to perform a variety of functions such as identification, storing bank account information and holding digital cash. Payment information in the form of currency value is stored on this chip and can be retrieved with specially designed card readers
Disadvantages:
 Insecure transactions using fixed encryption.
 Risk of data loss due to chip failure.
2.1.3 ELECTRONIC PURSES AND DEBIT CARDS
Despite the increasing flexibility, relationship-based cards are credit based and settlement occurs at the end of the billing cycle. There remains a need for a financial instrument to replace cash. To meet this need banks, credit card companies, and even government institutions are racing to introduce "electronic purses," that are wallet-sized smart cards embedded with programmable microchips that store sums of money for people to use instead of cash for everything from buying food, to making photocopies, to paying subway fares.
After the purse is loaded with money, at an ATM or through the use of an inexpensive special telephone, it can be used to pay for say, candy in a vending machine equipped with a card reader. The vending machine has to verify the authenticity of the card and check if enough money is available for a chocolate bar. Then the value of the purchase is deducted from the banker on the card and added to an e-cash box in the vending machine. The remaining balance on the card is displayed by the vending machine or can be checked at an ATM or with a balance-reading device. Electronic purses would virtually eliminate fumbling for change or small bills in a busy store or rush-hour toll booth, waiting for a credit card purchase to be approved. This allows customers to pay for rides and calls with a prepaid card that "remembers" each transaction. And when the balance on an electronic purse is depleted, the purse can be recharged with more money. As for the vendor, the receipts can be collected periodically in person—or, more likely, by telephone and transferred to a bank account.
While the technology has been available for a decade, the cards have been relatively expensive, from $5 to $10. Today the cards cost $1, and special telephones that consumers could install at home to recharge the cards are projected to cost as little as $50. A simple card reader would cost a merchant less than $200.
Advantages
 For banks, the advantage is reduction in handling of cash and checks which
have to be transported securely and are labor intensive to handle. Electronic purses
are also seen as means to protect the bank and the card holder relationship which is perceived to be important in today’s’ competitive world
 For the retailer, the advantage is the reduction in handling of currency and check. This
includes reducing the delay in money being credited to the retailer’s account.
 Another advantage is the reduction in the risk of theft
Disadvantages
 Real problem arises if the purse operator goes bankrupt. This is because the card user has exchanged real money, whose value is guaranteed by the state within certain limits, for electronic money in a smart card. If the purse operator goes bankrupt, the electronic money can suddenly become worthless, and the user will have lost his or her money
 Another significant drawback for the user is what the card holder can do if the purse no longer works. If the purse is anonymous, then not even the purse system operator can determine the amount of money that was loaded into the purse
