HID Global’s iCLASS SE Platform expanded to include Credential Encoding Solution

The new iCLASS SE Encoder, a desktop solution and developer toolkit (DTK) from HID Global enables organisations to encode and instantly issue cards using a single device. The multi-technology encoder makes it easier for customers to migrate from current technologies to the higher security, adaptability and portability of the company’s iCLASS SE access control platform. The solution gives organisations the convenience of encoding a broad range of current and future technologies, with the option for customers to create and manage keys and configure readers locally or through HID Global’s iCLASS and SE Elite programme. “Migrating current systems to operate with our iCLASS SE platform has never been easier with the new iCLASS Encoder that empowers customers to encode and format an extensive range of credential technologies, on demand, through an easy and straightforward process,” said Helmut Dansachmueller, vice president of product marketing, credentials and embedded technologies with HID Global. “HID Global’s goal with the encoder is to give users the technology flexibility and confidence in their access control systems investments as they move to high frequency and future technologies.”   The iCLASS SE Encoder provides an entirely open solution and that allows organisations to encode multiple credential technologies, including both genuine HID and third-party credentials, in order to upgrade existing card populations for use with iCLASS SE platform readers. For maximum interoperability, the solution supports Seos, iCLASS SE, standard iCLASS, MIFARE Classic and MIFARE DESFire EV1. The encoder also supports 125 MHz HID Prox for encoding Prox credentials as well as migrating from HID Prox to high frequency technologies. Users can seamlessly and easily migrate from one technology to another by simply extracting access control data from an existing card and writing it to the new credential, without having to manually input data or understand encoding details. For even higher security, users can “wrap” their access control data within a Secure Identity Object (SIO) and then write it back to the same card.  Based on open architecture, the encoder enables SIOs to be added to the full range of supported cards, including MIFARE and DESFire credentials. The HID Global Developer Tool Kit (DTK) for the iCLASS SE Encoder Platform is designed for systems integrators, OEM’s and solution providers who wish to integrate contactless encoding capabilities into their products and leverage the advantages of the iCLASS SE ecosystem. Key features: Programme standard security or Elite credentials Securely manage credential keys Multiple format support Programme Genuine HID or third-party credentials by downloading appropriate Encoder Credits Developer Tool Kit (DTK) provides all the necessary tools, documentation and developer resources to allow integration of the iCLASS SE Encoder into third party applications. HID Global is also introducing a flexible credential encoding applet structure that is based on an easy-to-manage credit system. Users install only the applets they require for the technology credentials they currently need, and can add applets to support other existing or future technology credentials over time. In addition, the iCLASS SE Encoder is field-programmable and upgradeable for added versatility.   The encoder is part of HID Global’s award-winning iCLASS SE platform, which empowers users to implement a combination of credential technology, traditional smart cards and smartphones that meet the specific needs of their access control system. HID Global also plans to offer credential encoding capabilities via its FARGO printer line and its HID Secure Identity Services portal.
