How do HID access cards work?

In simple terms, a proximity access card is a credit card sized ID card that holds the credentials of the owner of the card. The card includes contact or contactless technology that allows the owner of the card to swipe or wave the card in front of a card reader that in turn will grant the holder access through a door or locked entity.

Most of us use some type of contact or contactless technology for access every day, perhaps even multiple times a day. But have you ever stopped to think about what happens in that split second at the door or gate once you swipe or wave your card? Let's take a look at a simplified view of the process from the point when you scan an access card...

HID access cards communications process

Image source: (https://www.hidglobal.com)

Almost all physical access cards carry a number, or set of numbers that are used to identify the holder. The way data is 'given' to the reader varies according to the technology involved and how it is stored on the card (typically a chip or RFID of some description). The technologies typically available with HID access cards are:

  • Magnetic Stripe (Legacy Technology)
  • Low Frequency 125 kHz (Legacy Technology)
  • High Frequency 13.56MHz (Current standard)
  • Ultra High Frequency

Does the access card technology matter?

In todays world, best practice recommends that the underlying technology should use the latest security standards. Legacy credentials tend to have vulnerabilities that have been exposed over time by researchers (or worse!). Such vulnerabilities make it possible for hackers to easily forge, clone or spoof a credential. HID Global are constantly improving their technology and their next generation credential technology is based on the latest security standards, built to provide the highest levels of security and privacy protection.
