New card readers target market for multi-use smart IDs

A new family of multi-protocol card readers is aimed at addressing the “growing trend in corporate, campus and other environments towards the use of a single smart ID card to perform many functions.”

Based on technology from LEGIC Identsystems, Identive Group’s new readers work with a variety of smart-card formats to support applications like secure access to networks and shared office equipment, ID credential authentication, cashless payment, loyalty and others.

Fixed and mobile device reader modules are available now and a desktop version allowing chip initialization, card issuance and application management will be introduced later this month. To further simplify the contactless chip access process and support application development on the readers, Identive is also developing an easy-to-use command set that will be made available later this year.
