TagMaster announced it has made enhancements to the TagMaster Security Concept to include secure encrypted TCP/IP communication over ethernet using HTTPS protocol.
The new security relates to the data communication between the RFID reader and external systems, over the ethernet used for communication between readers and host control systems. To enable a higher level of security, the HTTPS protocol as a selectable configuration option in all TagMaster’s long-range Gen4 RFID readers.
TagMaster’s Gen4 readers already provide multilevel password protection ensuring controlled access to the configuration menus of the reader. TagMaster’s SecureMarkID concept is used to protect TagMaster EPC Gen 2 tags and prevents them from being duplicated.
TagMaster’s 2.45 GHz ID-tags include 32-bit CRC error detection and a proprietary eight-digit unique ID to ensure correct reading and to prohibit duplication. TagMaster readers will be presented at the ASIS International 2011 trade show in Orlando Sept. 19-21 in booth #1163.
