From simple read only proximity technology to encrypted contactless smart card technology with the ability to hold biometric templates in a secure sector for multi factor authentication Authenticard offer a choice of industry standard technologies for secure identification and verification of people and things.
Freedom of choice.
Authentifire is a security layer which augments a standard Authenticard DESfire card to provide increased security without inconvenience
Since 1992 Legic Identsystems AG in Switzerland have pioneered their LEGIC 13.56MHz contactless smart card technology using both international standards ISO14443 and ISO15693 for increased read range.
Designed as an electronic ticket Mifare from NXP was one of the first smart cards on the market and remains the most popular contactless card technology.
DESFire was designed by NXP to provide greater security than Mifare and also add improved data storage management. DESFire is compliant with all parts the ISO14443 standard for interoperability between systems.
Proximity is the traditional read-only low-frequency technology that has stood the test of time since the earliest days of access control. Proximity has an effectively fast reaction and the low frequency of 125KHz allows longer read-range than similar high-frequency technologies.
