Contactless Card Bodies
With the Contactless card bodies offer, Customers can easily have their
Corporate Security applications all based on a single user device. The resulting
hybrid smartcard (combination of contact PKI application embedded on a
contactless card body) results in the combination of PKI-based
Logical Access Control (LAC) - to networks, workstation logon, mail or
data encryption & signature - and Physical Access Control (PAC) - to
buildings, offices, and restricted areas.
It also enables easy and reliable visual identification of the card holder and
communication around Corporate identity, and features wide multi-application
capabilities, such as payment for catering,
vending machines or car parking, loyalty programs, and so on ...
All user's credentials are therefore safely & conveniently managed in one
unique device, featuring both contact and contactless interfaces. To
maximize user-friendliness in a field where speed & convenience are critical,
PAC is managed through the contactless interface.
