This HID Crescendo smart card belongs to the industry-leading Crescendo series that includes standards-based (JavaCard, Global) smart cards designed for strong authentication requirements. The C1100 is FIPS 201 compatible.
The C1100 offers a multi-application and multi-technology platform in order to be able to handle diverse deployments in corporations who need a generic smart card that can handle both physical and logical access control requirements.
The card supports Security Identification Object (SIOs) for high security and the open and portable framework of the ActiveIdentity applet made by HID Global for JavaCard-based appliances. Unique keys for each application makes data more secure. A large memory capacity allows the card to support some of the most demanding applications in use today, such as PKI digital certificates, Single Sign-On, VPNs and disk encryption software.
Physical access options can include iCLASS, Prox, DESFire EV1 and MIFARE. Contact-only and hybrid cards (contactless and contact) are available. The card can be ordered as a single or multiple-technology contactless card, and even legacy options such as Hitag and Legic can be ordered.
The HID Crescendo C1100 Smart Card is also a cost effective solution as its user doesn't need to have several identification needs and several passwords and codes. The card can be ordered in quantities as low as 25. The card is able to be used as an authentication badge for employees and as a means to control access to facilities. It is a genuine all-in-one solution.
A FIPS 201 compatible card with NIST CIV compliance and support for a vast range of logical and physical applications, the C1100 offers an incredible range of features.
