SMART CARD READER
FOR YOUR ID-1 CARD

In many companies, smartcards are used as employee ID cards and have been tried and tested in practice for many years. The electronic ID card (digital identity) stored on it as an electronic personal certificate is a reliable, secure identification feature for 2-factor authentication. The secure memory (Secure Element) on smart cards is usually certified and thus protects against unauthorized access and use. In addition, other applications such as signing and encrypting emails, signing documents, storing other certificates, keys, authorizations for accessing file systems, applications or VPN connections can be protected securely via smart cards.

AirID is wireless. You can use your smart card without a cable connection on your Windows / MacOS / Linux system and of course also on Apple and Android. Simply leave your smart card in your pocket and work as usual – protected by AirID.

SMART CARD
FOR ALL
YOUR DEVICES

With AirID, all you need is one secure storage for your digital identity. You can store all your authorizations, certificates, PINs or other keys on just one portable smart card and then make these authorizations available for various devices and applications of all kinds. Your confidential keys and certificates are always kept separate from the device and cryptographically sealed so that they are protected against unauthorized access.

We recommend the use of AirID with EAL5+ certified (ID-1) smart cards. This protects your sensitive data in compliance with maximum security and best usability.

MOBILE SECURITY
FOR ENTERPRISES

AirID is the combination of a feather-light card reader and an ID cover. It connects wirelessly with your smartphone, tablet, notebook or PC using Bluetooth low energy technology, additionally encrypted via AES256.

The AirID has the form of a transparent identity card cover and impresses with its discreet characteristic. In contrast to other card readers, the smartcard remains in the AirID reader during all applications, including any existing NFC function such as door opening or payment functions.

With AirID, you can meet all modern security requirements in a heterogeneous network environment. With its unique appearance, the smartcard solution as a mobile card reader fits inconspicuously into everyday working life and enables encrypted communication. The integration into the corporate infrastructure is implemented in close cooperation with the customer and, if necessary, corresponding integration partners.

MOBILE SECURITY
FOR GOVERNMENTS

Commercial mobile devices do not have a trustworthy data storage device that can be used. For example, the BSI writes in the brochure “Mobile devices and mobile applications” that the internal device memory can usually be read out.

This represents a considerable security risk, especially in the regulatory environment where sensitive data is an everyday occurrence. For example, the use of smart cards on mobile devices with AirID is a way of keeping sensitive key material separate from the device and using an AES 256 encrypted Bluetooth connection to make this data available to devices without smart card slots such as smartphones, tablets and modern notebooks. By using it with a suitable application like SecurePIM, AirID is even VS-NfD approved. This means that the use of AirID is also approved by the BSI for use in the public safety environment up to classification VS-NfD.

EASY
HANDLING

INTEGRATED
DISTANCE LOGOUT

Another application of the AirID is the distance logout. The Bluetooth Low Energy connection between AirID and PC/mobile device enables automatic logoff without a mouse click or touch. As with a distance meter, AirID locks the device when a certain distance is exceeded.

 

 

DISCREET APPEARANCE
WITH YOUR AirID

As small as a badge: the look and size of the AirID makes it a perfect everyday item. In addition to the security function, you can also use your AirID as a functional ID cover. As usual, carry your company ID card with you. The card is completely in the card slot and is completely visible through the transparent housing. With less than 50 g, the AirID can be comfortably carried over an ID-jojo or lanyard.

FULL
PHYSICAL ACCESS

The RFID technology (radio-frequency identification) enables electronic time recording or access and access control. AirID supports this technology. The smart card does not have to be removed from the AirID, so you can use it as usual, for example, to open doors with appropriate authorization.

PIM FUNCTIONS
SECURE USE

Personal Information Management (PIM) includes the administration of calendars, contacts, documents, e-mails and tasks. AirID supports the standard PIM functionality of existing third-party products, ensuring secure encryption of corporate information.

The high security standard allows not only encrypted data exchange, but also secure surfing – not only inside even outside of the company. Despite sensitive messages and the exchange of secret, company-internal data, AirID enables you to handle your device with confidence.

STANDARD
INTERFACES

Use standard interfaces such as BLE and USB for maximum compatibility between the end devices and your existing IT environment.

EIN GERÄT FÜR
ALLE PLATTFORMEN

Whether Windows, BlackBerry or iOS – AirID works platform-independently!
It is therefore up to you which operating system you choose. The automatic distance logout is possible with all platforms and represents the decisive difference between AirID and other card readers: If you remove yourself too far from your implement with the AirID, access is automatically locked. The PKI smart card and the AirID always stay in the safest place – directly with you!
