Smart Card hackery

This is an old video (from May of '08) and probably accomplished using an older technology smart card (theoretically easier to break), but it's still quite interesting to watch how one can peel back the layers of a smart card in order to snoop the communications going on within the components.

The related story on Wired.com gives a lot of interesting details to the ongoing cold-ware between satellite TV operators and hackers attempting to get free TV.
