Ingersoll Rand Security Technologies has revealed its new aptiQ smart card from Schlage featuring MIFARE DESFire EV1 technology.
According to IRST, aptiQ cards are built to support a variety of applications, including access control, event ticketing, payments and more.
aptiQ smart cards offer multiple different layers of security, including mutual authentication – which ensures that the reader and the card are allowed to talk with each other before any information is exchanged – and AES 128-bit encryption, a key encryption technique that helps protect sensitive information, according to IRST.
Additionally, the cards supply diversified keys, which ensure no one can read or access the holder’s credentials information without authorization. A message authentication code (MAC) further protects each transaction between the credential and the reader during the transfer of information.
The cards are now available and on display at ASIS 2010, booth 2333.
