Secure approach: Kevin Niekrawietz, Karla Korb and Raoul-Thomas Herborg
Their passion is RFID security and the start-up company i-SiD is passionate about getting the message across to visitors at their stand.
All five employees of i-SiD – a company embedded within multinational G+D Mobile Security – are showcasing the security aspect of their cloud-based solution that offers the possibility to use UHF-based identities in heterogeneous environments for a variety of scenarios.
Until now, key management has proven to be a major show-stopper while setting up an open and secure RFID system with various stakeholders. Loading new keys into the reader is often time consuming and very complex.
In addition, the many different implementations of UHF technology and widely diverse hard- and software solutions markedly complicate the overall identity
The i-SiD platform manages and monitors identities, chips and readers. Thousands of tags can easily be rolled out and handled via i-SiD, as well as new tags ordered directly via the platform.
Ultimately, the i-SiD platform securely links the physical and digital world by gathering the information of when and where each tag is identified. It takes over the complex but essential tasks of key management and authentication, as well as securing privacy by managing who is permitted to identify which tags.
The i-SiD platform integrates into existing applications and can be either used as a cloud service or installed on premise. Applications include access management, highway toll collection, smart parking, automatic vehicle identification and asset tracking.
