Overview | Specifications

HID Global's SIO enabled ecosystem offers a highly secure, standards-based, technology-independent and flexible identity data structure based on Secure Identity Object (SIO), a new open credential standard. HID's iCLASS SE Processor sits on top of all existing card technology and supports the interpretation and authentication of the SIO data structure to increase overall system security; it also supports key emerging technologies, delivering superior performance and enhanced usability.

As a virtualized interpreter, the SIO processor enables reader manufacturers, developers and system integrators to quickly and easily integrate SIO and HID's Trusted Identity Platform (TIP) into their devices, providing a device- and technology-independent layer of additional security on top of device-specific security that acts as a digital data wrapper for additional key diversification, authentication and encryption.

  • The iCLASS SE Processor supports new SIO-enabled credentials based on a variety of technologies, such as iCLASS SE™, iCLASS Elite®, iCLASS Seos and MIFARE Classic.
  • It can also be configured to support standard iCLASS, providing compatibility with existing installations or card deployments.
  • The iCLASS SE Processor allows developers to easily embed it into a new reader design utilizing the surface mount technology chip, or integrate it into an existing reader design /infrastructure using the convenient pre-packaged ID-1/ID-000 card.

The iCLASS SE Processor is a cryptographic module that enables reader manufacturers, developers and system integrators to quickly and easily integrate SIO and TIP into their devices. For more information, review the SIO specifications below:
