HID Global, the identity and ID security product company, has announced its latest MIFARE DESFire EV3 credential.
Harm Radstaak, Senior Vice President and Head of Physical Access Control Solutions with HID Global, said: “Our credential based on NXP MIFARE DESFire EV3 delivers this technology’s full range of advanced security and privacy capabilities and reinforces them with HID’s powerful model for identity data protection. This latest addition to our portfolio underscores HID’s commitment to continually expand our credential offering with solutions that are easy to customise, deploy and maintain. It helps organizations further streamline security through a simple framework that supports multiple form factors and communication protocols.”
The ID firm says that the credential based on MIFARE DESFire EV3 implements the technology’s full range of capabilities including AES128 encryption, a secure channel for protecting card data from man-in-the-middle attacks, and a random unique identifier (UID) for protection of user privacy. The credential works with readers based on MIFARE DESFire EV1 and EV2 products and is interoperable with HID’s Signo (pictured), iCLASS SE, and multiCLASS SE readers. In addition to choosing standard or custom security profiles to meet their specific needs, you can user HID’s Secure Identity Object (SIO) model that protects a credential’s identity data through key diversification, authentication signatures, and encryption.
Users can create multi-technology cards with HID’s credential based on NXP MIFARE DESFire EV3 to provide a migration path from legacy, low-frequency 125 kHz-based systems, the company adds.
Philippe Dubois, Vice President and General Manager Secure Edge Identification at NXP, said: “The MIFARE DESFire EV3, with its enhanced feature set and multi-application support, reflects NXP’s continued commitment to secure, connected and convenient contactless smart city services. We are happy to provide faster and secure contactless access solutions together with HID.”
