HID Global announced it has expanded its secure identity credentials offering to support the latest MIFARE DESFire EV1 technology. The MIFARE DESFire EV1 card joins HID Global’s iCLASS card portfolio to expand customer options by enabling multiple applications on a single card.
HID’s expanded secure Genuine HID card offering includes both MIFARE DESFire EV1-only and combination MIFARE DESFire EV1/Prox credentials. Available in PVC and durable composite PET/PVC construction, the cards are designed for many applications and can accept an embeddable contact chip for logical access ID systems.
To provide the most extensive range of backwards compatibility with existing systems, HID high-frequency cards are available with prox and magnetic stripe options. In addition, MIFARE DESFire EV1 cards can be programmed to user specifications and fully personalized with a wide range of customization options that are offered through HID’s Identity on Demand services.
MIFARE DESFire EV1 technology delivers transaction times of less than 100 milliseconds for a typical secure transaction. Based on open global standards, the technology is fully compliant with ISO 14443A 1-4 specifications and has been awarded CC EAL 4+ certification for card security.
