ARC-D - 13.56 MHz DESFire® EV2 biometric readers


Welcome To High Security

The reader uses the latest MIFARE® DESFire® EV2 contactless chip technologies with new data security mechanisms:

• Secure Messaging EV2: secure transaction method based on AES-128 with protection against interleaving and replay attacks.

• Proximity Check: improved protection against relay attacks.

All public encryption algorithms can be used (3DES, AES, RSA, SHA, etc.), which are recommended by official data security agencies (such as the French national agency ANSSI).


Manage with ease a multi-factor identification

The ARC-D Architect® reader combines the latest RFID MIFARE Plus® & MIFARE® DESFire® EV1/EV2 technologies with fingerprint recognition to enhance the security of your access control system.

Fingerprint Management

The reader offers several fingerprint management possibilities depending on your security needs.

  • Fingerprint templates directly stored in the RFID card (CNILFrench legislation compliance)

  • Fingerprint templates stored in the reader or in the system

  • Biometric derogation to manage one-time visitor or difficult finger etc.


Advanced Anti-Fraud Functions

The Architect® biometric reader is designed to resist fraud attempts:

  • False finger detection: the reader detects a wide range of counterfeit fingerprints made of latex, Kapton, transparent film, rubber, graphite, etc.

  • Detection of live fingers

  • Duress finger: the admin can assign a finger number dedicated to authentication when the user is threatened.

Create Your Own Scalable Configuration

STid allows you to upgrade the functionalities and security levels of all your readers. The modularity concept allows you to implement new functions: keyboard, touch screen or biometric fingerprint sensor and/or add a 125 kHz module for your technological migrations.

Best Market Self-Protection

The patented tamper protection system protects sensitive data and gives the possibility to delete the authentication keys and fingerprints (if fingerprints stored in the reader). Unlike the current solutions on the market, the reliability of the accelerometer based technology avoids it being outsmarted.
