What is the primary feature that distinguishes a smart card from other types of access card?

A. Presence of an integrated circuit
B. Presence of a magnetic stripe
C. Requirement to enter a PIN or password
D. Compatibility with biometric authentication

Correct Answer: A

Smart cards contain an integrated circuit that interactively authenticates with the reader. They do not necessarily contain a magnetic stripe. There is no requirement that a smart card be combined with a PIN/passcode or biometric authentication, although this is often done to achieve multifactor authentication.
