Provides advanced security and performance functionality

By CBR Staff Writer

HID Global, a provider of secure identity offerings, has launched a new, portable secure identity model that provides advanced security and performance functionality while enabling the use of virtual credentials on mobile devices.

The new model is based on a Secure Identity Object SIO data structure, which will be launched on iCLASS SIO-Enabled (SE) access control credentials at the Sands Expo and Convention Center in Las Vegas, Nevada.

The new iCLASS SE platform functionality includes: trust-based security: HID Global’s next-gen reader platform delivers an array of security advances including the assurance of data authenticity so users can detect data tampering.

In addition, the new platform usability and performance functionality allows the platform’s standards-based architecture to optimise usability and performance across many applications and deployment scenarios.

It will include a variety of out-of-the-box security capabilities, and use a dual-data payload and multi-modulation Software Defined Radio (SDR) architecture, through which users can flexibly and efficiently support both Secure Identity Object-based and traditional 125 kHz and 13.56 Mhz credential technologies, said the company.

The environmental sustainability functionality features Intelligent Power Management (IPM) capability, which is designed to cut energy costs by reducing the amount of power used to operate units during non-peak hours.

HID Global senior vice-president and chief technology officer Selva Selvaratnam said SIO technology deployed within their TIP framework will enable the migration of physical access control technology beyond cards and readers into a new world of configurable credentials and virtualised contactless offerings that can be securely provisioned, no matter where they are or how they are connected.

"The technology also enables users to add levels of security, customise security protection, and extend system capabilities without having to overhaul the device infrastructure and applications," Selvaratnam said.
