Access controls based on simple, and in some cases, cracked chips (EM and Mifare Classic) are unsustainable in the long run. With these solutions we cannot guarantee the security of the systems.
It is therefore important that we together try to raise the level of security on both old and new systems, for example by starting to use secure chips, readers and programming. Once the tag (key fob or card) and the readers are secured, only then do we have an infrastructure in place to deliver secure access control systems.
Key fob and cards with Mifare DESFire EV2 chip that are programmed correctly provide very high security. This is also a solution that works in many established access control systems. Areff has been supplying products for this type of solution for several years. The important thing, in our experience, to get this and happen is to create an ordering and installation process that is easy for the installer. With the experience of a number of projects, Areff has a simple and well-functioning process for installing and ordering Mifare DESFire EV2 solutions. Since 2019 we have also been an accredited supplier of RAID products, ie Mifare DESFire EV2 products compatible with RCO’s R-CARD M5 system.
RAID – RCO DESFire Application ID
RAID is based on Mifare DESFire EV2 with a custom application structure, all according to RCO’s accreditation. RCO’s system, R-CARD M5, is prepared for RAID which makes it easy to activate this high security in the system.
RAID is transmitted to you as a customer through Areff’s SKEP – Secure Key Exchange Process, which ensures the delivery of secret keys in a simple and easy way. Then you activate the RAID in your RCO system. When ordering cards, tags or readers you only need to enter your RAID, so Areff knows how to produce the products. This way, we ensure that you get products that work in your system, no matter what key fob or card you choose.
