Wiegand vulnerability solved!

04.10.2016

A long-standing disadvantage of Wiegand-cabled systems has been their readers must decrypt transponder data before sending it – unencrypted – up to their hosts. Idesco’s new Badicio 8000 AES controller helps you address that vulnerability by supporting continued encryption of transponder data from our 8 CD 2.0 AES readers while requiring no changes to your system’s credential database.

How does it work? 8 CD 2.0 AES readers replace legacy readers, RS-485 replaces Wiegand cabling, and new DESFire transponders replace old tags. (RS-485 cable not only supports Idesco’s highly secure RS-485 AES protocol but permits significantly longer cabling distance between 8 CD 2.0 AES readers and the Badicio 8000 AES.) Best of all, a Badicio 8000 AES supports up to four connected 8 CD 2.0 AES readers.

Badicio 8000 AES comes with its own convenient configuration tool, letting you refine its interface with your system. The result? Your system software and credential database will remain unchanged, while Badicio 8000 AES and its 8 CD 2.0 AES readers can now deeply encrypt – and protect – your transaction data from transponder to controller!
