Access control systems commonly require physical credentials to authenticate and approve access. BQT Solutions offer a range of secure credential options that can be preconfigured or customised to suit your needs
Key fob credentials are a popular choice for applications where the credential doesn’t need to double as an ID badge. BQT stocks a wide range of fobs to suit the most common communication technologies – 125KHz, 13.56MHz MIFARE Classic or MIFARE DESFire EV1, EV2, and what we don’t have in stock, we can order in for you.
A fob is a common credential because of the convenience of simply added one a key ring. Used in all market sectors
MIFARE Classic was the first version of a high frequency, more secure MIFARE card system. Storing the card number on one of its sectors, the card then encrypts the communication between the card and reader, and is exponentially harder to hack compared to its predecessors.
MIFARE DESFire added to this step change in security and is the most secure of the MIFARE card systems. It features a cryptographic module on the card that adds an additional layer of triple DES and AES encryption to the card/reader transaction which reduces the risk of cloning or copying of cards. This is one of the highest standards of card security currently available.
BQT Solutions also offers the ability for an integrator or end user to purchase their own reserved set of encryption keys. This effectively gives the organization their own entire set of globally unique site codes and card numbers, protected with their unique encryption key, for that site. This means there is no chance of other cards from ever working on that site.
