Access Cards


When iCLASS isn’t Enough

iCLASS SIO-Enabled (iCLASS SE) Smart Cards are part of HID’s Next Generation Access Control Platform & Open Ecosystem based on Secure Identity Object (SIO) – a new portable credential methodology.

What’s SIO?

HID SIO (Secure Identity Object) is a data model for storing & transporting identity information in a single object. SIOs consist of a number of independent but associated data objects for items such as physical access control (card numbers for example), biometrics (finger print templates) & cash on card. The collection of this information – in an SIO – ensures the proper coupling of related data – i.e. guaranteeing that 1 individual’s card is not associated with another individual’s fingerprint. SIOs can be deployed in any number of form factors, including contactless & contact smart cards, smart phones & USB tokens. When combined with an SIO interpreter on the authentication (or reader) side an SIO based system functions the same as a traditional card & reader system with enhanced levels of security, portability & flexibility.

iCLASS SE Smart Cards feature multiple securely separated application areas that are protected by 64-bit read/write keys – that allow complex applications & provide for future expansion. iCLASS SE Smart Card technology provides secure access control & increases performance with mutual authentication, encrypted data transfer & 64-bit diversified keys for read/write capabilities.
