Idesco to release 8 CD 2.0 readers with new enhancements

Published on 7 April, 2014

Start anticipating some exciting enhancements coming to 8 CD 2.0 reader security and functionality in a few months.

  • The first new major security feature to be supported is called Random UID. Random UID enables 8 CD 2.0 readers to successfully interrogate and recognise transponders configured with random, changing UIDs, designed specifically to thwart cloning and hacking efforts.
  • Another powerful enhancement enables 8 CD 2.0 to recognise either 4 or 7 byte UIDs – or both.  This is particularly useful when migrating from MIFARE Classic to MIFARE DESFire, where both transponder types will be encountered by readers over the migration period.
  • Lastly, SmartMX support will be expanded to include DESFire EV1-emulated SmartMX chips. SmartMX transponders possess contact chips, but can also be recognised by an RFID reader.
