HID Global's access control platform goes beyond the traditional smart card model to offer a secure, standards-based, technology-independent and flexible identity data structure based on Secure Identity Object (SIO), a HID portable credential methodology. iCLASS SIO-Enabled (iCLASS SE) smart cards are part of iCLASS SE access control platform and open ecosystem based on HID's Trusted Identity Platform (TIP) architecture for advanced applications, mobility and heightened security. iCLASS was specifically designed to make access control more powerful, more versatile, and more secure, with encryption for all radio frequency data transmission between the credential and reader using a secure algorithm. iCLASS extends this technology by providing additional key diversification, authentication, encryption and portability for advanced security and performance. HID's iCLASS read/write contactless smart card technology can be used for diverse applications such as physical access control, PC logon, biometric verification, time and attendance, cashless vending, public transportation, airline ticketing and customer loyalty programs.
