New ‘transparent’ security option
Our new 9 CD 2.0 Slim Pin T hosts a unique, powerful capability for high security systems. Popularly described by our industry as a ‘transparent’ reader, 9 CD 2.0 Slim Pin T is able to seamlessly transmit a transponder’s data – fully-encrypted to ANSSI Level 1 Architecture specification – directly to a system, without any mediating keys. ANSSI (Agence nationale de la sécurité des systèmes d’information) is a French access control security authority, and its Level 1 Architecture is recommended for organizations requiring the highest system security level.
The resultant direct, ‘transparent’, interface between a reader’s RF chip and a receiving system not only gives integrators more freedom implementing communication between them. It also lets them use more of RF chip’s features. Integrators have already been deploying the reader in ID06 2.0-compatible applications and settings in Sweden. More to the point, transparent readers offer a clever solution to problematic technology issues that integrators occasionally face.
9 CD 2.0 Slim Pin T supports several RFID chip technologies, including MIFARE DESFire EV2, and its pin housing lets you add a pin code algorithm to enhance access security.
