Featuring DESFire
EV1 technology and Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) to protect data transfer
between the credential and reader as required by the Rijkspas specification,
the reader enables government entities to utilize their existing card
population while migrating to the new Dutch Rijkspas.

Offering a wide
range of mounting methods and accessories with simultaneous support of MIFARE
Classic and HID Prox, the reader is capable of reading legacy cards and the new
Rijkspas cards, further simplifying conversion to the new standard.

The new reader is
built on HID’s flexible iCLASS architecture and allows for numerous output
configurations to address migration challenges with a multitude of access
control systems and provides the ability to be upgraded when needed.

“The
extension of our iCLASS reader architecture further demonstrates the company’s
ongoing commitment to meeting government standards, programs and initiatives
worldwide with solutions such as HID’s iCLASS FIPS 201 and the Dutch
Rijkspas-compliant iCLASS readers,” said Brad Jarvis, vice president, product marketing,
HID Global.

Field upgradeable
using convenient reader firmware cards, Rijkspas-compliant iCLASS readers have
the option to be re-configured to support additional or substitute applications
including traditional iCLASS credentials, allowing installations the
flexibility to address a change in tenancy.

Additionally,
configuration cards can change the various reader behaviors, including
beeper/LED operation and custom MIFARE Classic configurations.
