HID Global expands its iCLASS SE platform for secure identity solutions with the debut of a reader module that provides full interoperability with the company's iCLASS Seos smart card and other current and emerging technologies including smart cards, microprocessor cards and NFC-enabled smartphones.

The reader module is said to enable third-party development of products that simplify how identities are created, used and managed. The device is useful for access control, PC logon, biometrics, transit, customer loyalty and other identity applications.

Key features include the company's Secure Identity Object (SIO) data model within its Trusted Identity Platform architecture that increases security while delivering simplicity, adaptability, and interoperability. iCLASS Seos credentials deliver full privacy support, feature a standards-based card edge, and are portable for use on NFC smartphones. iCLASS SE readers and Seos credentials are also interoperable with a growing range of commercial and residential locks from HID Global parent ASSA ABLOY.

The iCLASS SE reader modules simplify technology migration by supporting iCLASS Seos, iCLASS SE, standard iCLASS, HID Prox, Indala Prox, FeliCa MIFARE Classic, and MIFARE DESFire EV1 credential technologies.

Also, all iCLASS SE reader modules are compliant with Federal Information Processing Standard 201 federal identity specifications for reading personal identity verification II credentials, and are included on the U.S. General Services Administration Evaluation Programme's Approved Product List.

Plus, the modules support firmware changes and field upgrades to extend customer installation lifecycles, and are backwards-interoperable with existing HID Global OEM75 module products to further enhance deployment flexibility.

The iCLASS SE Reader Module also includes a comprehensive Developer Tool Kit (DTK) that accelerates design initiation and shortens integration cycles for finished products. The DTK includes all of the necessary tools, utilities, and sample products across a variety of reader and antenna form factors and test cards, as well as documentation and other developer resources and materials. All DTK resources are accessible via a secure, online developer portal.

The HID Global iCLASS SE Module Developer Tool Kit is available now, together with additional modules and antennas for integration purposes. Volume availability of modules and antennas will begin in December 2012.
