rf IDEAS introduces secure segment readers for LEGIC contactless smart cards

ROLLING MEADOWS, IL, April 11, 2019 — rf IDEAS, provider of the leading enterprise platform for identity acquisition within secure authentication and access solutions, now offers smart card readers for LEGIC credentials designed for easy integration into third-party systems of all kinds, including, multifunction printers, healthcare devices, automation controllers and more.

In use worldwide, LEGIC smart cards incorporate a patented master-token security concept and can encode additional data for up to 127 custom security applications. However, only a LEGIC-compatible reader can be configured to read this additional data, and these advanced features often go unused.

Now, rf IDEAS is introducing two readers designed to unlock the full potential of LEGIC technology:

  • pcProx®, a single-frequency reader for LEGIC and other 13.56 MHz smart cards
  • pcProx® Plus SP, a dual-frequency reader for 125 kHz proximity cards and 13.56 MHz smart cards, including LEGIC, featuring an ultra-slim form factor for easy integration on or within the device.

These readers support both the original LEGIC prime technology and the newer LEGIC advant, giving customers the ability to continue their support for legacy credentials and to upgrade or migrate readers anytime as needed. The pcProx family also works with a wide range of non-LEGIC cards.

The meaning of true security

Any ISO-compliant reader can authenticate the serial number of an ISO-compliant card. But true security comes from the ability to configure segment data on the card, and to extract it with a reader that has the proper encryption keys. That’s the advantage of LEGIC technology, and now it’s available in reliable readers designed for easy integration via USB into practically any device.
