Card Reader Can Be Integrated Into Single Sign-On Systems

HID Global : 30 August, 2012  (New Product)
The new Omnikey chip card interface from HID Global enables keyboard card reading as part of a secure single sign-on system
Card Reader Can Be Integrated Into Single Sign-On Systems

HID Global has announced its OMNIKEY 5427CK Chip Card Interface Device and keyboard wedge reader, which eliminates complex software lifecycle management issues in the field by allowing integrators to design contactless solutions without having to install or maintain drivers. These contactless readers are commonly used for secure print authentication applications in printers and copiers, for SSO solutions, and for access control systems and networks.

Using the keyboard wedge functionality, users of the OMNIKEY 5427CK can easily retrieve data from a credential that is presented to the reader and directly input the card data into an application using keystrokes emulation.  This eliminates the need for customers to manually enter credential data into an application. For embedded applications, HID Global also offers an OMNIKEY 5127CK reader board that enables the same functionality.

For quick and easy integration support for both housed and reader board versions, HID Global provides an OMNIKEY Developer Tool Kit (DTK) that helps shorten integration cycles and decrease time-to-market for finished products.

“Enterprise customers are increasingly using their credentials for more than just access control, and they are now demanding additional applications such as secure print authentication and SSO solutions,” said Helmut Dansachmüller, senior director of product marketing with HID Global. “The new OMNIKEY 5427CK not only supports these converged applications, its features also help accelerate product integration for our partners, enabling them to bring finished products to market more rapidly.”

The OMNIKEY 5427CK supports low-frequency standards as well as high-frequency standards such as iCLASS, iCLASS SE, HID PROX, MIFARE Classic and MIFARE DESFire EV1.  This provides users with a seamless migration path for their credentials and enables mixed credential technology scenarios.
