Like almost any other computing device, smartcards are becoming more powerful. This increase in computing power and storage capacity has caused a trend towards multi-application srnartcards. Because of the increasingly large amounts of data stored on a smartcard, the need for a file system arises. The limitations of current smartcard technology (such as limited stable storage capacity, very slow writes, very little main memory, lack of autonomy, etc), make it infeasible to use existing file system implementations. In this thesis, we present a file system specifically designed for smartcards. In order to arrive at a solid design of such a smartcard file system, we first present the results of a survey of existing file system design methods, together with an analysis of which of those methods are most suitable for use in a smartcard file system. Based on this analysis, we propose the design of a smartcard file system, SCFS. SCFS combines a number of techniques, such as shadow paging, and access control lists, to provide high reliability and high security. We also present a quantitative evaluation, which shows that, despite providing high levels of reliability and security, SCFS is able to attain adequate performance.
