 DESKO has chosen HID Global's RFID module for mobile border control identity checking system

HID Global, trusted worldwide leader in solutions for the delivery of secure identity, announced that its RFID reader module has been chosen by DESKO for its Personal Identification Mini Dock (PIMD) identity-checking system. 

Jointly developed with  Panasonic, the system is designed for border-control, policing and other security applications, and includes a DESKO-designed optical character recognition (OCR) unit and a fingerprint scanner that are connected to Panasonic's Toughbook CF-U1 ultra-mobile PC device.

"HID Global's RFID reader module is a key element in our revolutionary 3-in-1 solution," said Bruno Geyer, managing director with DESKO. "We chose HID's module because it is one of the fastest readers on the market at transfer rates of 848kbps, and features a rugged design that ensures reliable outdoor operation under harsh conditions.  We know we are providing a superior solution by incorporating HID technology inside our 3-in-1 PIMD."

"HID and DESKO have worked jointly with Panasonic to create a truly exciting advance in border-control identity-checking technology," said Maik Pogoda, vice president of e-government sales for HID Global's Identification Solutions (IDS) business. "Our RFID reader module supports the latest generation of e-passports that comply with EAC mandates to deliver stronger encryption plus biometric data, such as a fingerprint or iris scan, which is more difficult to impersonate on the RFID chip.  By supporting both BAC and EAC standards, HID's RFID readers provide future-proofed flexibility as the world migrates to the ultimate in secure technology."

The PIMD RFID reader module features a user-friendly document-holding clip and standard PC-SC interface to support biometric reading. It is designed for reading biometric passports or ID cards and other RF documents that require support for MIFARE Type A/B protocols. It is the only solution available that supports both BAC and EAC standards, and also complies with International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO) 9303, International Standardisation Organisation (ISO) 14443 and ISO 15693 standards, and follows German Federal Ministry for Security in the Information Technology (BSI) specifications for biometric passport reading.

HID Global offers a wide range of RFID reader board modules that OEM customers can use to develop customised solutions. The read/write readers enable modular set-up for easy integration, and are designed to support all existing and yet-to-be-developed ISO chips and chip operating systems. The inclusion of both BAC and EAC standards future-proof designs, and for additional security, advanced encryption techniques protect against unauthorised access to the chip data. The option of field-upgradeable firmware or a read-only memory (ROM) mask is also available upon request depending on platform.
