For many years the Access Control and Security Industry concentrated on the security of the data exchange between the access control credential (card) and the reader.
Early systems were quickly compromised when cards were cloned and security was breached. Encrypting the data between the card and reader provided a more secure interface but there was still a weak link in the system. Having encrypted the card to reader data, this data was then passed to the access control system using industry standard Wiegand protocol. Basically, an unencrypted signal that is easily intercepted and copied.
Secure encryption of data
Our RX series OSDP Secure readers offer complete end to end security. This provides absolute certainty that the access control system is protected from start to finish by providing secure encryption of the data from the card right the way through to the host controller. This prevents unencrypted data being intercepted at any point in the system.
The RX series advanced access control readers have a clean and sleek style of design and is ideal for surface mounting directly to most plain wall finishes. It also fits directly onto a UK, EU or North American electrical backbox. This powerfully secure and innovative reader has a beautifully clean aesthetic and features an RGB LED that can be applied to many applications, e.g., colour access levels, migration status or mood lighting.
